Hi All,

Well tomorrow is the day of my first official A1C since being diagnosed with diabetes. Since my diagnosis I have lost 40 pounds and have a 30 day BGL average of 129.

I AM SO NERVOUS…so please keep me in your thoughts and prayers…I hope to have a low enough level that I can try to have a baby :)

I have to thank everyone on this site for ALL the support, advice, recieps and friendship..I COULD NOT have done it without you.

Wish me Luck!!

Hi Everyone,

So I went to the doctor and she said that I was doing FANTASTIC..I have lost a total of 42 pounds..I am actually doing so well that she said that I might not have take insulin once I get pregant. I should have the A1C tests back next week…if its lower than 6.3 I can realize my dream of becoming a mother. Thank ALL of you for all of you words of encouragement, support and friendship…I appreciate each and every one of my new friends. Have a wonderful weekend everyone and thanks again.

Congratulations on losing 40 lbs. since your diagnosis! That is great! By your monthly average at 129 I would think your first A1C should be pretty good. Keep up the good work!

Just remember it's the first one, but I am sure it will be fine. keep us posted and good luck on the baby. I have concerns for my daughter for when she wants to have children. God Bless!
