I am so excited.. got my A1C back today and it was 6.5%!!! I was diagnosed about a year and a half ago and it feels amazing to see my hard work paying off. I'm also considering pregnancy soon and this seems like a pretty darn good A1C to start at!

That's fantastic! I got pregnant on accident  (Yes, I know how it happens) and I was scared to death. But I was a healthier diabetic while pregnant than not. I also learned that, though my A1c was in the low 6 range, it was false since I was experiencing a lot of lows. My last A1c was 7.2 but overall my control is better. I've been diagnosed since 1999 and I'm still learning!

Thanks everyone!! So great to have a supportive group... and really the biggest thing I did to help was wait for my insulin to kick in! I watch my CGM until the arrow starts to go down slightly...and then eat! Helps so much for those after-meal highs!
