Doing some math in my head (albeit, not good math), I concluded that if I keep this kind of activity up I will have an A1C in the 8 range.
Throughout my entire pregnancy I maintained an A1C in the 5 range. Almost three months after I had B, it was still in the 5 range. Now, who knows where that number will be.
I would feel ashamed, but I am entirely too exhausted. Diabetes has taken a backseat to anything else and that is something I am not proud of. As I write this blog I know that my dexcom break is over. My days of only checking three or four times are over. Time to get back on the wagon!
Before this pregnancy I was convinced that one child was all that I needed. Once I brought my perfect baby home from the hospital, I knew I wanted to fill our house with smiley little J clones. Seriously. A lot. This means, keeping my body a perfect environment for any future baby. This delivery required a c-section and most likely any subsequent pregnancies will also require one, so for safety's sake, it is likely that three c-sections will be my max. In order to have two more perfect pregnancies I need to not allow my body to take a break from diabetes. I need to recognize that in a land of good control, there are not any breaks from diabetes. To live a long and happy life with my crowded home of children, I need to make sure my care does not take a back burner.
So, here I am. Back on the wagon. No more d-generate diabetes care.
