I am so glad that I found a place like this. I myself am not a diabetic, but my wonderful wife is. We have been together for the last 5 years and married for the past 4. She has type 1, and dose an imaculate job of controling it.

We have two kids now, ages 3 1/2 and 1 1/2, as well as a new baby on the way. My wife is now 2 months pregnent and doing well.

She has been a diabetic for more then 10 years and has just been an insperation to me and others around us. I am hoping to learn more from other people here about the things that work for differant people and give advice from our personal experiances.

It looks like a great community and we are glad to be a part of it.


Welcome! You have come to the right place.
congrats on your wife doing a great job.
keep us posted on the pregnancy and birth.

Welcome to Tudiabetes! I am glad you found us! Congrat’s on the baby. Like Nancy said keep us posted on the new baby.

Welcome Pete!! I’m glad that you found this community! I hope that your wife will join as well! You should check out the group for people with “Type 3 diabetes”, for those people who are the loved one of a person with diabetes. Also, we have a group called Oh!Baby! all about diabetes and pregnancy! I bet that your wife could give a lot of great advice there!

I wish your family all the best as your prepare for the new arrival!

Welcome Pete. It really helps things go more smoothly when you have a supportive spouse. I have a great hubby too:)

You definately HAVE come to the right place. I don’t have diabetes either, and my boyfriend has Type 1. I haven’t yet introduced him to the site, but its doing wonders for me! Somehow I don’t feel so alone anymore =)
