For the past year I'd say, my diabetes hasn't been in the best control. I was gaining weight, never got above 149 though, and my diet was poor. I have over the last few months started watching what I eat, have lost 20 pounds, and work out about 5 times per week. My next step is better control of my diabetes. I am going back to the old school way; measuring everything that goes in my mouth! I am using the bolus wizard on my pump to give the exact amount of insulin, and have an appt with my endocrinologist on Monday. (New endo. so hopefully I like him! =) ) I do not have any children at this time, but we can not wait to start our family. My main question is once I get my A1C to the proper levels (at least in the 6's or less) and continue to maintain proper diet/exercise/weight, how long should a T1 wait until they start trying to get pregnant? I talked with my OB/GYN the other day, but would like to hear input from other T1s.
Thanks in advance!
