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
