I'M PREGNANT!!! :)

Okay, so I know I have been totally missing in action, but there is a reason why!! I am pregnant. Yes, me!! I still can't believe it and I am still so very scared of what is to come, but am also taking in every moment and just loving it!

I will be 12 weeks on September 29th, which just so happens to fall on our 2nd Anniversary :) We found out very early on, at about 4 1/2 weeks, so I was able to make sure that my blood sugars, etc. were as perfect as could possibly be (easier said than done when your body is growing a precious baby ;)). I went to my endo the Tuesday after we found out with an A1C of 6.9 and six weeks later on this past Tuesday, it was all the way down to 6.0! My endo laughs at me each time he sees me because of the number of times I am checking my blood sugar, but my fingers will have to deal with it!

The first two days after I found out, I checked my blood sugar around 25 times each day!!! AND had my CGM in ;) I know, overkill, but like I said, I don't care!

I'd be lying if I said it was easy, especially in the beginning, but it is all so worth it. Every time my blood sugar would creep to 200, I would panic and start to cry and at first, I was having spikes without reason, so it was very difficult and so very stressful, but things have gotten better. I am still in the "going low" phase before the tripling of insulin phase and I am comfortable with how things are.

Anyway, I will definitely write more later, but I wanted to give my big announcement and let you all know that I am still here and I am doing so wonderfully!! I've missed you all and I am happy now that my secret is out!! :)

Thank you guys so much!! We are so very excited! I know the journey may not be easy, but everything is worth it in the end! It is amazing the sacrificed you'll make when another life, especially your own little one's, is at stake. I am looking forward to share this wonderful journey with each of you, because well, I still stand by the fact that if it weren't for each of you, I would not have made it this far in my diabetes journey!
