Any Type II Diabetics expecting here?
Hi - I was wondering if there are any Type II Diabetics on this Board who are either expecting or have given birth with Type II Diabetes?
I think I am pregnant. DH and I recently started trying to conceive. My periods have always been very regular and I'm already a few days late. I plan on seeing my OB this week.
I'm worried though, b/c about a week ago I had a stomach bug. Since I couldn't stomach much, I'd been munching on crackers, rice and bread. Not something I normally do at all but this was an exception and honestly I didn't think I'd get pregnant so quickly.
My blood sugars had peaked around 165 and probably averaged around 115 for about 4 days. (Normally when I am vigilant with my diet I maintain blood sugars between 85 and 95).
I'm worried b/c clearly if I am pregnant I had high blood sugars for a few days in what would be considered very early pregnancy.
I'd appreciate any advice from anyone who's been in a similar situation. Thanks.
