Feeling relief...

I had my routine 2 week endo appointment
and things are going well.
So far a little spike in my required insulin needs,
but nothing my trusty pump can't handle.

My A1C is heading where my lovely endo wants. 

Last time it was 5.2 
and she was happy with it, but didn't like how many lows
I was still having.
It is now at 5.3 she was happy with it, 
I on the other hand wish I felt 
like I am seeing consistent numbers to defend why I am still this low. 
I guess I am just too hard on myself, 
but whatever i can actually control with insulin
I don't care about the number, 
I just want her a healthy weight and 

After than appointment, I then saw my 
new OB, who I REALLY
He's helpful, comforting, 
educated and 
is overall very calming. 

The one thing I feel like I've lacked in my doctors, other than my
is that they really seem to forget,
I'm a person, too,
with feelings, with emotions, with worries 
with serious concerns
 and that actually take the time to listen to them,
give advice, helpful advice
and understand that this is the first time I've had a child,
and obviously need professional help from them.
This new OB is answering all my questions, 
Like my need to find a great pediatrician 
so we can ask them about 
going gluten free for Elia, 
and anything I can do to help possibly 
ward off
Type 1 if we can.
to how my test results came back and what we are going 
to do about my liver and what is happening with it now. 

For those of you who don't know, 
or care, 
we don't know exactly when or why,
but last summer my doctors found that
I have a enlarged Liver, and also having
big numbers for my 
liver enzymes AST and ALT.
They would presume it is NAFLD,
which is Non Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease,
possibly caused by Cholesterol.

So after knowing this might take years to fix, 
(we tried fixing this however my liver enzymes continued to rise
very much and had really abdomen pain)

So to fast forward, 
in my doctor appointment with my wonderful
he told me he got my results back
and it came back

I have 

Some how, my child bearing ways,
I now have low AST and ALT enzymes
within the normal ranges. 

I couldn't believe it. 
I have heard this over and over again 
all the complications 
liver disease and have
especially when pregnant too. 

Well, I'm happy to say, I am down one
bad scary diagnosis 
and only have 
the D- MAN
to now cure. 
which.... I'm just happy I have nothing else on my plate.
So YAY for no more liver concerns, or problems.
I still don't understand how I'm cured but I hope
it stays around for a 
LONNGGG Time.!!!


  1. yay! Great news! Being preggo seriously does make people better. I wasn't allergic to food anymore while preggo. Maybe the body knows it needs to do super work so it ends up healing problems while taking care of baby.

  2. ahh, well it's a miracle!! I just hope my life stays this way after she's out. THAT would be AMAZING!!!!
