Help! I am a total wimp when it comes to self-control, and I really want some help with accountability so that I can get my A1C nice and low before conceiving again. And I want another baby soon! :)
I did fairly well my first pregnancy- A1C's 7.6, 5.9, and 6.2. That first 7.6 made me nervous about the health of my baby so I gave in to the doctor wanting to induce, which ended in a C-section (the last thing I wanted). The baby was in the NICU for 1 weeks due to an unknown infection, but was otherwise healthy- 20 inches long, 7.0 lbs (about 1 lb. smaller than estimated on ultrasound), at 39weeks, 5days gestation.
I feel that if my A1C is excellent at conception and throughout pregnancy, I will have more confidence that the baby will be fine- better even- if I go into labor naturally and give birth vaginally.
Please share your experiences and especially please let me know if you can be a strict accountability partner with me (and I will be yours too if you want) to help me be confident in my decision to refuse induction and to attempt a VBAC.
Thank you so much!!!
