My health

I have decided to start writing about the ups and downs of my health. As most people with diabetes know, it is a constant battle and struggle to keep it under control. I don’t think it gets easier as time goes by, I think it actually gets harder!

My husband and I have been married for 3 1/2 years and we have decided it’s time to think about kids. My doctor tells me that if I want to get pregnant I really need to have my blood sugar under control. I completely agree with her, but that doesn’t make it easy. I have decided to be more careful about what I eat and also have decided to begin testing my blood sugar more often again like I used to.

I think that writing about my stuggles and successes will help me. I have every intention of having a family and being around to hopefully see grandkids! I know that will require more work on my part and I am ready for it. Bring it on!

Ahhh you two are such a cute, cute couple. I chose not to have kids and the little one I am holding is my precious niece, Avery. I am so happy you have chosen to have children and yes you must try to have good bgs and I so agree that the longer you have this disease the harder it gets. The very least you can do to start on your mission of better control is to test every two hours then at least you can try to correct those numbers that are not in your range of good diabetic control. Keep on posting your mission and keep on trying so that you can have beautiful kids to share with us. :slight_smile:
