10 Weeks 1 Day Scan

I went for my 10 week 1 day scan yesterday. It went well! The baby measured at 10 weeks 4 days. Last week it measured 9 weeks at the 9 week 1 day scan, so maybe it had a little growth spurt! :) Our next Ultra Sound will be the Nuchal Translucency Ultra Sound in 2 weeks.

I've still had a lot of morning sickness and the doctors have given me medicine for this, but it's still not helping 100%. They still have me taking Endometrin 100mg until 11 weeks, but only once a day now and not twice. Because of the random morning sickness throughout the day I am experiencing lows sometimes afterwards. I always make sure to have my sugar pills handy! I like the Dex 4. They taste the best.

My blood sugars are still having some mild ups and downs. We have to more reduce my insulin though because I am having more lows. We did up my lunch carb ratio though from 1:11 to 1:10. Other than that we have reduced some basals. The doctor told me to expect peaks and valley's in my numbers during the first trimester. (some high some low).

Now the 2 week wait until the big scan!

9 weeks 1 day scan

As you can see I am not updating every day, but after each appointment or any major changes. I went for my 9 week 1 day scan yesterday and so far so good! I was thinking or more hoping that the throwing up all week in the morning was a good sign. :) It's been pretty bad though the past week. At least 3 times before lunch, so I had to ask the doctor for some medicine. I took a pill today and felt so much better!

My A1C was 5.1 which was great! Now I'm at the point where I am starting to see my sugars go a little lower so I'm starting to have to reduce some of my basal levels. I go over these numbers with the doctors every week. We usually make adjustments together, but sometimes I will make some on my own. Like this week I kept getting low after breakfast so I changed my carb ratio from 1:9 back to 1:10 where it was before.

I'm still exhausted! So that's hopefully another good sign! I will go back next week for another appointment and to have my blood drawn for my nuchal transluency blood work. As long all goes well I will have that appt on July 5th!

Now 8 weeks, 7 week 1 day scan and A1C

So the nausea started at about 6 1/2 weeks and it's steadily gotten worse. But...I'll take it! I figure it's a good sign. Last Thursday I had another 7 week 1 day scan and we are right on track! I'm still not out of the woods though, so it's still scary. I had to take a trip to Vegas over the weekend and I was nervous flying being so early on, but the doctors told me it was ok. I'm still feeling sick so I'm hoping that everything is going well. I had to go because I planned an event there, but let me tell you, Vegas sober....not recommended! lol.

I am 8 weeks today. I have had to increase my morning carb ratio from 1:10-1:9 and change my lunch carb ratio from 1:12 to 1:11. But my blood sugars have been really good and not too many lows! My morning sickness is more like any time of day sickness. Mostly it's between breakfast and lunch, but I've thrown up at all times. Or sometimes I just gag. I am still super tired and have mild breast tenderness, but mostly I'm having to pee all of the time!

I just got my A1C back.....5.1!!!!! I am so excited!! I've worked really hard to get it and keep it there. I am testing about 15 times a day now. I know it will just get harder with the changing hormones and fluctuation in sugars, but I will continue to do what I can. I test before meals and 1-1 1/2 hrs after and any time I just feel weird.

I don't have my next appt until Next Thurs at 9 weeks 1 day. That is exactly the time that I miscarried before, so it's a big deal to me. My husband said that he's definitely coming with me to this appt. I will keep you posted on how it goes! For now I'm just trying to keep myself busy and stay relaxed. Because no matter what the outcome, the reality is that I have no control over it.  I'm just staying positive!! :)
