I have had type 1 diabetes for almost 8 years now. I have had A LOT of ups and downs and through my whole teen years I was out of control. My last few A1cs have been under 7.5 and as low as 6.3.
I haven’t brought it up to my doctors yet but we are trying to plan when to start trying for a baby. I do have one complication from T1 already because of my neglect. I have neuropathy. Its damage to the nerves in my legs.
Every thing I have read when I was younger said that diabetics shouldn’t become pregnant because its such a high risk to both the mother and child. I want to have a baby more than anything. For years now I have been so discouraged by what I have read that I never thought it was possible. But after reading some of the posts on here I am starting to get even more excited that I may be able to have my own babe.
I would like to know some of your experiences with your pregnancy if you don’t mind sharing. My fiance also read some of the posts on here and I swear he was smiling from ear to ear at the thought of having a little one of our own. He is fine with the idea of adopting or even having a surrogate but I think he was a bit more excited of the idea of me carrying our baby myself.
I know this is kind of scattered in my thoughts but I am just trying to take in the idea of ME having a baby since for so long now I have thought it to be impossible.
