5 week 1 day scan

So yesterday went about as well as could be expected. I met with all my diabetes doctors who were super stoked to have me back. This included the head of the Diabetes/OB clinic and the Endocrinologist and nutritionist. They said I'm on the right track right I'll keep it going!

As for the ultra sound. We hit 2 milestones out of 3. We saw a gestational sac which measured 5 weeks 1 day and it was in the right spot in the uterus!:) We could not see a heartbeat yet so we will have another scan in one week. Until then all I can do is control my sugars and try to relax!

My sugars are pretty stable. Over the past couple of days I have been high after breakfast though so I changed my morning carb ratio from 1:10 to 1:9. Hopefully that will make a difference. By 'high' I mean I am not under 140 1 hour to 1 1/2 hours after breakfast. I have been anywhere from 160-215 so I'm trying to fix that!

Am I telling people yet you may be asking? Only a couple of people know. Considering what happened last time and how long it took us to get pregnant, until I see a heartbeat and maybe even until I'm out of the 1st trimester, I think I will just keep it to the small group who knows....Right now it's just one day at a time!


  1. That is terrific. I'm sure you'll do exactly what you need to do to protect your Lil Bean!
    What (if any) symptoms did you have over your 2ww? My beta is scheduled for 5/30, and I'm afraid to feel positive. These last two frosties, were our last two. We failed the first IVF & the first FET ( all from same cycle).

    1. Hi Suga Mama!

      Thanks. We have our 6 week 2 day scan tomorrow. Over the two week wait I didn't feel anything the first week. The second week about 4-5 days before my period would have come I felt very period crampy. I swore my period was coming. It was dull and achy some days all day. When we conceived naturally I remember feeling like my period was coming, but this time it felt stronger. Like bad PMS. I wish you the best!! Just try to relax as much as possible. I got a cold the first week after the IUI and could do nothing but sit around the house and stir. I thought all day about it! Am I pregnant or not! Wish us luck that we see a heartbeat tomorrow!

    2. Oh...I also had insulin resistance about 2-3 days before my cycle was due. Like waking up at 250 and not knowing why!

  2. when you see the insulin resistance do you just set a temp basal for a 24 hr period for a few days? i dont want to go low when the resistc is "over.."
