Hi Michelle. I am on a pump and I am just staring my second pregnancy and it can be daunting. To be honest, in the beginning I would get more lows, but as the placenta grows, it does become more difficult to control your sugars. You can’t stress about it because as you know, stress can just make your sugars worse or take longer to get down.
When I would go to my OB appointments, the Drs would stress me out with telling me I needed to get them lower and get my A1C lower, but that became more difficult as the placenta grows like I said. It’s not impossible though. When you’re pregnant & the belly is growing, smaller more frequent meals was key & walks after meals that were larger help tremendously with balancing blood sugars. If you exercise now that is awesome, keep it up during pregnancy. If you don’t now, then start maybe a light exercise routine that you can carry on into pregnancy. Yoga was a big help before, during, & after pregnancy. It helps to lower blood pressure and keep the body loose.
B/c we are Type 1, it will be a “high-risk” pregnancy, but you’ll get monitored more and a little more special treatment. I actually liked it b/c when you get to the end of the pregnancy, you go more frequently & then you get to see your little one more frequently (once a week)! Sorry for all the info but its all good stuff! Don’t stress out about it. It’s nothing to be scared of & don’t let Drs or anyone else freak you out. You know how to control your sugars better than anyone else.
