The title is a little misleading because I have a LOT of big pregnancy concerns. Obviously, above all I want my baby to be healthy and there's a lot of concerns that go into this desire.
I obviously worry about my lungs and potential infections, but even more so right now is my diabetes. I'm worried about my sugars being too high/low for the baby and causing it harm. I recently started the insulin so I'm still getting it slightly under control. I've started off only taking 3-4 units with a meal and eating really high-calorie meals since weight is such a problem for me. The problem is, with the insulin my sugars stay elevated for a few hours after dinner. So, I'm not sure what my endocrinologist will say about this. I don't see her until October now since she is on maternity leave. She had given us her blessing before having the baby but I feel like I'm missing a piece of my support system without seeing her recently.
Not sure if I should go see a different endocrin. in the mean time or just wait for her to get back...hmmm
