I'm diabetic. Have been for 14 years. And I have a great man in my life, and 4 wonderful kids, ages 15, 14, 13 and 1. The 13 yo and 1 yo are biologically mine.
Two weeks ago, we found out we were expecting again, and we were excited about it...until this past week when a perinatal nurse gave me a warning that the dr is concerned for my kidneys and their functioning during and after this pregnancy. She told me that this coming week when I meet with the dr, to prepare myself because I may be told that I need to choose between my health or terminating this pregnancy.
I'm devastated! How can any mother choose? Of course I want to be healthy for my children that are here with me now, but this "baby's" heart is already beating...
All is riding on results from some labs that I had done this past week. If they come back okay, then I have nothing to worry about, but if they come back poor, I have a very difficult choice
