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!! :)


  1. yay for excellent marital support! DH had been to all the apptmts except that 8 week one when i MC'd and it was the loneliest, saddest i have ever felt.. this time he will be coming to all of them i think (well we just statrted ivf cycle so got a while to go ;)

  2. When I had my miscarriage, that was one appointment that my husband wasn't at either. It was hard, so I understand. I'm wishing you the best on your IVF cycle!!! :)
