Hi everyone.. So I am almost 20 weeks pregnant (2 days to go) and I have been having a lot of problems with my sugar levels and my doctors. My sugar levels have always been very high (was diagnosed 11 years ago) but luckily I started getting them down before falling pregnant (unplanned). My Hba1c when I was about 5 weeks was 8.6%. After seeing my OB Gyn, he terrified me about the complications my diabetes could cause. At about 10 weeks, he booked me into hospital to change my insulin to Novorapid and Humulin N, without explaining much about the new insulin or what to do if my sugar was high (he never really answered any questions, just told me I was coming up with excuses every time I asked something or tried to explain what had happened). Unfortunately, because of this, I was trying to keep my sugar down as I was scared of my baby having any complications. At 12 weeks, I went into a coma twice in one day. The first time I got woken up from my fiance shoving honey down my throat, the second time I woke up in the emergency room of the hospital being woken up by a drip of glucose. Doctor booked me in again and blamed me for giving myself too much insulin. At this point, I was terrified, confused and angry. He once again changed my insulin, this time to Novorapid and Levemir. Please keep in mind, he is not a diabetic specialist at all but refused to call one in. I have now changed to a different OB Gyn who is also keeping a close eye on my sugar levels (also not a specialist). After seeing my sugar levels going to 12 or so every morning, she is wanting me to be booked into hospital again. I have explained that it is because of the Dawn Phenomenon as I do not eat during the night and my sugar is always perfect before bed. I also recently found out that the last box of insulin pens I got were leaking and I was not getting all the insulin I was meant to. I am trying really hard to get my levels below 8 so I can show I am trying and make sure baby will be safe, but insulin resistance seems to have gone up and my sugar levels are not coming down like they were. Baby is safe and growing well. But I am having an abnormality scan next week to check everything out. There don't seem to be any signs of problems yet though. I am really scared and starting to give up hope on these doctors as they seem to know less about what would work than anyone. I am also too scared to let me sugar drop below 4 because of my previous experience with waking up in the emergency room. Is it really that harmful for your sugar levels to go to 9 or 10 during pregnancy? I understand it going to 12, 13 or 14 being bad, but I am battling to keep it under 10. Any advice would be appreciated. I am going to see my Diabetic Specialist tomorrow evening, hoping he can give some sort of advice on this.
