I finally remembered to phone in for my new A1C result. Not sure why it took me so long to remember, what with diabetes weighing so heavily on my mind these days, but it did.
Five weeks ago I was 7.3 – up from where I usually sit in the 6s. It was early in the pregnancy, and I knew it had a lot to do with 2 weeks of illness and 2 weeks of vacation, both of which occurred before I got pregnant. But I was still determined to get it down. I even pinky-swore…remember?
So this time I was thrilled to find out that five weeks of hard work slid that A1C right down to a lovely 6.4! Woot woot! (I never go back on a pinky-swear.) Here’s hoping I can keep it in the low 6s (and dare I say maybe even into the 5s….?) for the remainder of the pregnancy!
Also, yesterday was my regular Ophtho appointment. He noted the messy bleed from a couple of weeks ago, also noted no new proliferation, and said all the stuff I was expecting: “No Avastin while pregnant”, “Eye should clear”, “No other concerns”, “See you next trimester”. I guess that’s all good(ish). I like the “No other concerns” part, anyway…and the fact that there was no new proliferation, of course. Dr. Ophtho also confirmed Jeff’s explanation of how the blood I’m seeing pooling at the top of my eye is actually at the bottom of my eye. I feel like I should have known that…but I’m super glad Jeff pointed it out!
Anyway, that’s it for my update. This is an “I’m-uber-tired-and-10-weeks-pregnant-and-the-combination-is-making-me-queasy” kind of evening, so I’m about to hit the hay only a little later than The Kid. Goodnight!
