hey guys I am going to join here for a while. I found out on Jan 1 i was pregnant, completely took me by surprise as just a few months earlier I was told by my RE best case scenario was IVF and even then I had a 40% chance. I am a type 2 diabetic and was previously on metformin but was off for a couple of months because my primary moved and I was looking for a new one. at my first u/s appointment last week I asked my RE to run my A1C to see where I was. Today when she got it back I was shocked... last time I had my A1C checked unmedicated it was 7.9, this time it went up to 9.5. She is putting me back on metformin and referring me out to a maternal fetal specialist but i'm afraid I might lose the baby in the meantime, as she says it can take a couple of weeks to get in to see them
anyone else work on getting their A1C down? any suggestions besides cut out all grain and sugar at this point?
