    Hi has anyone conceived at 42, if so did you have any problem? I already have a boy and was looking into maybe having another have spoken to my obstetrician and she said there shouldn't be a problem, a possible increase in miscarriage but that my hba1c needs to be 48, however the diabetic doc has said that that's too tight and I would suffer from hypos and has suggest 55 or below my hba1c is currently 60 so a little way to go has anyone else had this said about their hba1c target?

    Tagging @Robinredbreast for you :)

    My HBA1C was ok anyway, but I do know that ladies here have been given slightly higher targets if appropriate.

    My a1c is 48 and I am 17 weeks pregnant. It was 52 when I conceived and my team were fine with that. I'm now having frequent hypos which isn't good either, and my consultant said my a1c may rise a bit once I cut down on hypos and that that is ok.
