The tablet Metformin
is supposed to be safe even during pregnancy
and soon it will come in the standard recommendations that pre-pregnancy diabetic women can continue their metformin even during pregnancy as there have been no side effects noted by any.
At this stage when your HbA1c
is around 6, you can very well plan your pregnancy. Eventhough your weight is not coming down, your healthy lifestyle has to be maintained and make sure you do not put on weight before you come to know about pregnancy. Weight maintenance is the key.
Be prepared to use insulin
during pregnancy as it is a fact that as your pregnancy advances, your need of insulin goes up wether you are having diabetes
or not. Hence in a person with pre-pregnancy diabetes it is almost certain that in a few weeks' time she needs insulin along with the metformin to control the sugars strictly.
So the levels are not bad at all. you must maintain HbA1c 6% or lower all through the pregnancy for best results. You can go for pregnancy for sure as far as your diabetes is concerned.
Wish you all the best and get back to me for any further query.
