  • Yes, type 2. I developed gestational diabetes with my 2nd pregnancy and had it every pregnancy after that, although it would go away after the birth. About 1 year after my last child was born, I developed the symptoms again and that time it was here to stay. Diabetes runs in my family so I knew I had a chance of getting it.

  • I am a type 1 diabetic. I have been for a little more than 20 years. I have 2 healthy babies (2 years and 2 months).

  • OBI momma... Have you had any problems with diabetic neuropathy?

  • I have no problems with either of my pregnancies. I work very closely with my Endo. to control my Blood Sugars which for some reason go very low at the beginning of my pregnancy. But my OB says I am very healthy and both of my Children weighed in under 8lbs.

  • I am not diabetic but have had some issues being hypoglycemic over the years. I had a problem with a major blood sugar drop somewhat early in my first pregnancy and they were very concerned about me developing gestational diabetes when I was carrying twins for my second round.
