I’ve just given birth to my amazing, healthy, beautiful son. When I found out I was pregnant I was beyond nervous due to being diabetic. But with the care of my diabetic team, my family, and my amazing fiancé I had an amazing pregnancy and the best control of my life.

Would you rather fight one horse sized duck or 100 regular sized ducks?

    Thank you for sharing, Jenn. I recently had a very frightening come-to-Jesus conversation with my endocrinologist as he threatened me (since I am getting older and getting to the age to start planning a family) about the dangers and risks of being diabetic and pregnant and how difficult it was to carry on a pregnancy with diabetes…a couple weeks later I got to talking to my dentist’s receptionist while in the waiting room about her pregnancies with type 1 diabetes and how each one was very hard and full of complications (she’s had 2/6 pregancies successfully). She went on to assure me that she maintained a 6.0 a1C during her pregancies as well. Over the last few weeks since then, I’ve basically carried the negative mindset that life is not fair. At 23 years old, I no longer wanted to have a child in my lifetime because of all the negativity I had been fed and didn’t want the risks and complications. I felt that it would be selfish to even think about subjecting my future baby to possible mental/medical/physical problems because of me. It’s lifted my spirits reading your story knowing that you were able to have a beautiful and healthy baby. Thank you.
