I am currently 10 weeks pregnant with my second baby, it was completely unplanned and now I am starting to worry a little bit because of everything that I know can go wrong with Type 1 pregnancies.
My blood sugars have gone on a roller-coaster ride and before I knew that I was pregnant, I was in the 400+ bs range a couple times. I've read that high blood sugar in early pregnancies can cause downs syndrome and other problems.. but when I shared my concerns with my Perinatologist, she let me know that I didn't have any other risk factors for downs, so I just have to control my blood sugar tightly from here on out.
I have a healthy 17-month old son, who is the light of my life and I can't believe I am going to be a mom of 2!
Being a diabetic is a full-time job in itself, but it really prepared me for being a mom and learning to laugh and not take things to seriously.
I hope the best for all of your pregnancies and look forward to hearing updates about your little ones!
