This is fantastic news. Congratulations. Baby girls are wonderful! (I would say that...I have one!)Hey guys!
Another quick update, I realise it’s been a long while! Currently 22 weeks pregnant with a baby GIRL!
My readings are still okay, no insulin so far. Wondering if anybody could answer me when would be the point they would consider giving me insulin, I’m aware of my targets and probably have at least one meal a day where those readings are above target, my fasting bloods are always on target and my others are never really above 9.
So over all they have been pleased at only around 5% of my readings have been over target.
My last HBA1C a couple of weeks ago was 32! .. lowest it’s ever been
I’m just up for keeping this little babe safe so I’m open to anything now.
Thanks so much for taking the time to read, sorry it’s took such a long time for an update! ♀ X

I’m surprised they haven’t put you on insulin yet. I was put on a low doses of insulatard every night right from day one. My levels were fantastic but they wanted to keep my waking levels below 5.5. I was also given novorapid early on too so I could safely make sure I was eating what I needed to.
It sounds like things are going so well for you.
Great to read that everything is going so well
I’ve had a bit of a look around NICE and Diabetes UK info and can’t find any clear pathway for when to consider adding insulin treatment, so I guess it’s just down to individual clinicians to decide. You could ask them to be more specific than ‘if you can’t keep your bloods in target’ -. I imagine they just try to not overload you with ‘what ifs’ but it’s understandable you want to know what to expect, if you‘re thinking about it then there’s no harm asking I’m sure they won’t mind the question.
Thank you so much, it was w challenge to say the least but a very worth while one xWow! She is gorgeous! Many congratulations!
I am sure it was a lot of hard work and effort on your part keeping your BG levels under control particularly during such a stressful period with the pandemic etc, so you should be exceptionally proud of yourself. Massive WELL DONE!
