I am new to this site. I am 35, was diagnosed as a Type 1 diabetic at 30. My inital A1C was over 15%, it has since been down in the 8% range with a few under 8%. In September, I met with doctors to try and plan a pregnancy, they suggested my A1C be below 7% at time of conception. I then saw them again a month later, too soon to check the A1C again but they gave me the green light to start TTC, based on my numbers from that month. I have an appointment next week to see my new A1C level which I think will be below a 7% based on my last 3 months of really good numbers. So, we have been TTC, and the last 2 weeks, my sugars seem to have bounced back up into the 200s, with no real explanation. A few I can attribute to Christmas snacks, but for the most part they just seem higher than they should be based on the last few months and my diet for TTC. I read another post saying that in the first few weeks of pregnancy, people have seen their sugars do the same thing. Is this really common? I do not know if I am pregnant, it would be too early for a home test. I should be able to check by next week, putting me around 3 weeks now if I am in fact pregnant. I am just curious if this could be an early sign that I could be pregnant? Thanks, I have really enjoyed reading your posts, it hasbeen very helpful.
Any other suggestions for TTC, and being pregnant with Type 1 would be helpful!
