  • As long as you keep an eye on things from here on out, you should be fine. I'd say it would be a great idea to join a group for diabetic pregnant moms on here to get good tips on how to control it and see a nutritionist as well.

    Hey... congrats on your pregnant!

  • i would say the same...stay on top of things from here on out and you two should be fine. there should be classes you can take in your home town too that can help you out or even at your ob/gyn office they would have more info for you.
