Pregnancy and Pre-Existing Kidney Disease

Hi Everyone,

I am 12 weeks pregnant and have some pre-existing protein in my urine from 20 yrs of diabetes :( I was told it would be ok to get pregnant but I would be watched very closely. As it turns out, I am already having a rise in protein and have been put on modified bed rest. I am really scared- has anyone been through this before? Any words of wisdom? Thanks!
