livacreature, great to hear!
famofour, I have a couple of autoimmune disorders that are related to each other (type 1 diabetes and Hashimoto's), but nothing related to Lupus or APS. That sounds really difficult. A new diagnosis is always daunting; I can only imagine how much more so during pregnancy. I'm so glad your OB was able to be of comfort.
I got bloodwork back today and everything is looking good, though my iron remains stubbornly low and my thyroid numbers are inching off target. A1c was 6.5, down from the 7.1 it was shortly before conception, so that's pretty good news. The time period of the test would have covered a good chunk of time before pregnancy, too, including the holidays, and since my numbers have been excellent ever since I found out, I am confident that I am doing well. I am aiming to have the A1c under 6 by next blood draw. I kept it sub-6 throughout my pregnancy last time, and it definitely made everyone panic a lot less.
