    I am a 36 year old type 1 diabetic and my husband was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis last year. We want to have children but are afraid of the risks that may come to the baby or myself. Has anyone ever been in this type of situation and is willing to offer advice.

    While I have not been in this position, you may find people who have and who can offer support and advice on our Diabetes and/or MS boards. I think that the best first step that you can take is to speak with your doctor about your concerns and what you can expect with your pregnancy so that you can make any necessary adjustments to your lifestyle, diet, etc now. This article has some information about planning a pregnancy when you have diabetes that you may find helpful: http://www.webmd.com/baby/planning-pregnancy-when-you-have-diabetes#1

    I hope you will check back in and let us know how you're doing!
