    I have been on oral medications for my diabetes for about 2yrs and all has worked well. A1c is steady at 7

    Recently found out I am pregnant, so stoped with the pills and was put in insulin (2 kinds) My hcg (pregnancy hormone) is rising About 200 points (or whatever they go by) Every 2 days or so, but not doubling like it “should be” I have read a couple of studies that said diabetics can show low hcg levels compared to average. Has anyone experienced that? I think I am about 5 or 6 weeks along waiting for an ultrasound to be scheduled. I have had one pregnancy loss in the past, I didn’t know I was pregnant until I had the loss. So I’m a little worried and have been watching my numbers closely.
