Re: [IP] getting pregnant, more than good a1c's



Spot,
Thanks for your helpful input.  I had a checkup January 2nd and he did a BP
check and kidneys and all of that unfun stuff.  His office called me a few
weeks ago and said everything was ok.  He told me if all the lab work
checked out OK then my main concern should be my A1C.  I was 7.2 in November
and I am dying to get a new one done.  I know I am lower now and I am
praying for somewhere in the 6's.  I am going to order the home A1C from
fifty/50 after I get alittle more info on it.

Thanks and I would love any more helpful hints you might have...
Mel :)
