Diabetes type 2 and pregnancy

Hello and thanks for your help in advance. I am becoming very worried about my health. First off, I'm diabetic (type 2) and over the past year i've been getting BS readings in the high 200's and A1C readings around 10 & 11. I'm currently taking Metformin(1000 mg/twice a day) and an insulin called Levemir(17 units in the morning), yet i'm still reading high. Is there anything I can do to bring it down? Second, I was sexually active on February 27 and I haven't gotten my cycle since Jan 26. They have always been irregular, but not to this extent. I've taken about 10 at home pregnancy test that all read negative as well as a recent blood test that read the same. I've been having pregnancy symptoms and still no cycle. Could this be related in any way to diabetes or am i missing my cycle because it was my first sexual activity in over 11 years?

Ok so it's been about 4 days and the pregnancy symptoms are still here. On a better note, I was put on a new insulin and I've seen Blood Sugar readings in the high 100's (which is still bad, but getting better). If anyone has experienced any thing similar to this, i'd love to chat with you!
