So previously this year I made a post here asking for advice regarding pregnancy with diabetes, mainly managing higher blood sugars. At that time my husband and I were talking about children and I wanted to do as much research to prepare myself for when that time came. Which apparently is sooner than I thought.
I found out I was pregnant last week, a total surprise to me. Thankfully we discovered incredibly early (I’m about 3/4 weeks) and before conceiving I was already working to lower my A1C. It’s still too high (currently 8.7) but that’s a lot better than it was in September of this year (10.3) so I’m still incredibly happy it’s come down so much. Currently I’m wearing my CGM again and monitoring my sugars constantly. I’m also working towards getting an insulin pump that interacts with my CGM vs. the Omni Pod I have.
My current target range is 70-140. I know I need to tighten that to 70-120 but right now that feels impossible and I don’t want to overwhelm myself by constantly failing to meet my goals.
I guess I’m mainly asking for advice again. Anything you have to give would be appreciated. What are your tips and tricks to keeping those sugars down? What was your target range during pregnancy? And PLEASE what were your go to snacks? I am constantly hungry and I feel like I can’t eat anything.
