Hi I've started this post several times and then deleted it feeling stupid. I'm type 1 diabetic 23 years and am currently 17 weeks pregnant and terrified. The pregnancy was unplanned As such finding out was a big shock, my hbA1c was ridiculously high @ 9.6 I obviously had not been taking folic acid prior to finding out either and after reading about the many possible complications that could occur have become convinced there will most likely be something wrong with the baby. I have been working really hard to keep my blood sugar down but have seriously struggled to get into the 'perfect range' even after lots of bolus ratio and basal changes suggested by my dsn. At the 12 week scan I was told everything looks ok but the most they could tell me was the baby has a head arms and legs and was OK in size. I've been reading lots of the threads on the forum and have felt much better knowing that some people have also had high blood sugar and have gone on to have healthy babies but don't think I've seen anyone with one as high as mine .....can't help but be terrified about the possible consequences of mine on the baby and have very mixed emotions about the 20 week scan which isn't for another 3 weeks. I don't know as yet what my current hbA1c is having only had my blood taken again last week. So currently feeling and scared.
