Hi I was just wondering if anyone could help or discuss with me my current delima with trying to get pregnant with type 1 diabetes for 18yrs. Seems like the world is telling me not to do it but most dont understand what I feel I am newly married have 2 children already 12yr old boy and 7yr boy, anyone have 3 kids and can give me advice please!
I am type 1 for 26 years and am currently 24 weeks along with my first child. Not only that but I have a clotting disorder for which they have put me on daily Lovenox shots. It is challenging, to say the least, but it can be done with hard work and determination. I'm sure the balancing act will be more difficult with a family to take care of. What does your doctor say?
My doctor says it is possible I got my A1C at a 7, they want it at a 6 or lower, I am working very hard at that, my family is the ones that fear this choice, my husband not so much he wants another but still unsure with my health
