I'm new to this website and while I don't typically enter things like this, I'm glad to have found a forum to ask questions and hopefully find support! My husband and I are in the very beginning stages of planning our first pregnancy. I am 33, have been diabetic for almost 21 years now, am on the pump. It seems as though just testing several times throughout the day, exercise and staying in tight control is the main theme here...not much different than when not being pregnant - but I do have to say, I do not test as often as I should and have gotten away from my normal exercise routine over the past few years. (I still work out weekly, but not as intense or as often as before.) My HA1C is - unfortunately - now in the low 7 range. (...good ol' wedding stress got to me!)
Just didn't know if anyone else was in my boat and if they had any 'words of wisdom' (besides the obvious)! Is it true that if I can get into better control and start some better routines now, that we could try and the next 3 months or so?
Looking forward to your feedback. I have other questions regarding doctors and pump info, as well...but will wait for that!
Thanks for your time!
