Im 20 years old and a first time mom I was diagnosed at 9 I do my blood sugar 7 to 10 times a day and use a insulin pump im 15 weeks 2 days pregnant and to be honest its a struggle but will be worth taking extra care of my self to have a healthy baby
Yeah, I'm trying to get into the habit of testing more often. I'm not on the pump, but I am on 2 different insulins(lantus & apidra) and metformin. I'm just trying to take it one day at a time, we have been wanting another baby for about 9 years and pretty much figured it wasn't going to happen and then surprise!!!
YO ESPERO NUNCA MAS TENER ESO,
My situation is a little bit more complicated I was diagnosed at 13 with diabetes but I also have kidney failure and now I'm 29 and I'm 8 weeks I check my blood sugar 8 times a day and use a insulin pump it's very hard but I want to make sure my baby is healthy
Was diagnosed at 13 also, I'm 19 now and 26 weeks. I was on metformin lantus and humalog then they took me off metformin and changed to levimer and humalog. My Dr made me a high risk patient so I get more visits. Its harder because I need to test more but its worth it.
My Dr is also very curious on my body and my baby though because once I begay second trimester insulin made my sugars spike (600+) and ice cream, cake, candy etc would make me low (75-90) so I haven't been able to take my insulin. He says its very rare but a possibility I could be considered borderline diabetic once the baby comes.
There are a lot of risks but its worth it long as you do what your supposed to
