WEEK 15 - MORE APPOINTMENTS
Week 15 was fairly uneventful. I saw my endocrinologist during this week, as well as my CDE (Certified Diabetes Educator – or Michelle, as some of you know her). My A1C had come down significantly since my last appointment a month ago, which was really good to see. At this point my bloodsugars were also starting to drop, though. The high trends of the 1st trimester became low trends of the 2nd trimester. This, oddly, is the reverse of what most women experience, which just goes to show that pregnancy does NOT affect all diabetics the same way! There are no hard and fast rules about what to expect – it’s all about close monitoring and being flexible about making changes when they’re needed.
