a lil update and prayers needed
We found out that I'm pregnant early this week. We searched for a hospital with english speaking doctors and found one at St. Luke's International. They performed a series of blood tests as well as an ultrasound. During the ultrasound, the doctor said she cannot see the gestational sac but the ovaries are okay. So they still cannot determine how old our baby is and she asked us to go back on Monday for another test to see if the hormone levels (HCG) are still increasing. She said there are 3 possibilities for now: normal pregnancy, ectopic and miscarriage.
I was then asked to see the internal med doctor to look at my blood sugar. The endocrinologist said that my blood sugar is sooo high (around 314, normal is around 100) and that the HBA1C is more than 10% (normal is 4). So she told us that if the baby is indeed 4 to 5 weeks old, there is a very high risk of malformation or abnormalities in the baby's organs. This was repeated by our OBGYN showing us a chart that there is more than a 20% chance that the baby will suffer from the effects of the mother's high blood sugar. The internal med doctor said that she cannot allow me to have this baby so she recommended that we terminate the pregnancy. She already gave me insulin (Novo-rapid Flexpen) to take 3 times a day.
Please bear with me if I haven't been active lately. This is kinda hard for our lil family. I'm asking for prayers and hoping for a miracle that I may continue my pregnancy and that the baby is not affected much.
Has anyone here encountered the same situation as mine?
Thanks for listening!
