I am SO psyched that my a1C for the 2 times before becoming preggo were both 5.6. Typically i am high 5s to mid 6s, with an occasional high 6.
Turns out the blood sugar in months leading up to conception are more important even than my pregnamcy! Who knew I could screw baby up before conceiving

This is lowest since I was a child and still honeymooning!

If anyone sees this who is planning a pregnancy with T1D, there is ONE (yes only ONE) book just for T1's and Pregnancy. I highly recommend Pregnancy with Type 1 Diabetes.

Huge Congratulations on those 5.6 readings, but much more important, your delightful news of a baby on the way.
