Hi everyone

The last time I was on one of these board was about 2 years ago. I was really happy to be pregnant but didnt realise that the excessive thirst and urination was a warning sign of high sugar.

I had a missed miscarriage at around 9 weeks. The embryo had only lasted till 6weeks 4 days. I was devastated and spent a lot of time blaming myself for not taking care of myself.

Fast forward to now...and I got pregnant again. I was very surprised as I didnt expect to be able to especially with my now diagnosed borderline diabetes issues. However I changed the way that I ate and lost loads of weight, the doctors put me on metformin and so far so good.

I thought I was about 8 weeks or so, had my first ultrasound yesterday to hear the doctor tell me that I had a big baby there! Apparently I am about 10-11 weeks, still not really sure... so everything has to be done asap. I return to my OB next week for the Nuchal Translucency test and hopefully everything will go well.

A couple of things... The doctor saw 2 sacs but only one heartbeat. Not really sure what that really means other than that this started as a twin pregnancy.... but one disappeared. She said probably quite early as there was nothing there...but I saw a strong heartbeat and the baby looks healthy so far.

So yea Im 39. I have given birth to 4 sons. Yes 4! Only 3 alive, my eldest passed away 4 years ago... ....Im convinced this is another boy. I have stopped hoping for a girl after 4 sons.

Anyways thats me!

Hope to get to know the rest of you expectants better

Aaishah

Hi there, That would be great. I have been eating pretty low carb for months now.. how do you manage your sugar? The last time I tested I was pretty good....95 in the am and then 120 after breakfast...but not sure what it is now.

My dr said to keep taking the metformin for the next month but Im about to run out so Im going to make an appointment with an endocrinologist asap (I was never formally diagnosed.. just told I was borderline)

hey right now I am counting carbs on a 1800 calarie diet. I will increase to 2000 in second tri and 2200 in 3rd. with every meal i make sure to at least drink one full bottle of water. I don't really drink soda but if I have to I will have a clear diet one. I got the what to expect while expecting dvd that has cardio on it. Its real fun and easy and it was cheap. i try parking farther from the door when going out and since we starting to have some nice days I try to get out for walk. The diet is new for. Just been doing it about three days but I ve been doing everything else in just the last 3 days I just found out I lost 3 pounds. I hope to stop because dr. don't want me to go over loosing 5 which is fine I just don't want to gain more 15 this whole pregnancy. I was on metformin but just got taken off of it. It don't work for me during pregnancy. Soi during pregnancy I am nph and humalog. fun taking all them shots I test6x a day and the last 3 days haven't had a sugar over 85 for the whole day so these shots is working. gl with your treatment
