It's All Good

It's all good...news from the doctor! Remember a few posts back, feeling like a pincushion after the doctor's visit? Well, she called me last night...herself (which impressed me), and wanted to tell me my results. First I had a hemoglobin A1C test, which is just an average of my blood glucose for the past 3 months. I was expecting it to be bad with the crazy few months I've had, but it was a 7.3! What that means is my average blood sugar is 183. Not exactly where it needs to be, but close! Very close! My target range is 100-150. I've been told that in the past, to get pregnant, that they like the A1C to be at least a 7. This is much better than levels I've had in the past. So, I'm pretty happy with this level. She also ran blood tests on my internal organs (it amazes me they can see so much from blood tests) to see the effects of being diabetic for 13 years. There are NO signs of diabetes taking any toll on my liver or kidneys, and she said everything looked excellent! That is pretty awesome!

So, I have my first high risk Ob-Gyn appointment next week, and I'm starting with a workable A1C, we're getting close to being in the shape I want to be in for babies! Yay!

That is wonderful news. It is always nice and amazing when the dr themselves call the patient. I am still praying for you and Jason to get pregnant soon and without complications. My husband just told me our neighbors/friends are pregnant again. This is her 3rd pregnancy. She was pregnant when I was and was a month behind me. She ended up losing the baby. Apparently there is something that her body rejects the baby at 6-8 weeks. So I am sure they are watching her like a hawk right now. Anyways Sorry I went off in a ramble.
Good Luck in your exciting venture to become parents, and remember HAVE FUN!

I'm amazed at God's hand in this, hon. I don't know why, but knowing first hand how hard to control your diabetes was in your teens with the hormonal ups and downs, there's no damage! I'm praising God right now!!
