Hi there!

Pregnancy can cause elevated sugar levels which might require diet modification and adjustment in insulin dose for adequate control. Also since the basic diet increases with pregnancy, insulin dose adjustment is required in most cases. Also exercise should be an important part of lifestyle during pregnancy (unless specifically contraindicated) for adequate sugar control. I would suggest discussing with your treating doctor regarding the modification in diet and insulin that may be required, at your earliest convenience.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!

Hello,
In march I was pregnant with my first child and I am also diabetic. My blood sugar were also all over the chart hawever my a1c was around 7.9. In april I had a natural miscarriage and ended up in the hospital, critical care, with ketones. However when I was pregnant I would set alarms on my pump every two hours to check my bg which is why I think my a1c became better. So deffinetly set alarms hopefully I helped and didn't scare you any.
