As long as your diabetes is under control that shouldn't stop or prevent you. I was diagnosed as a type 2 diabetic a little over 7 years ago and since i've had two completely healthy pregnancies and babies. If you are a type 2, metformin can even increase fertility....many women with PCOS trying to conveive are prescribed it.
But it's important to have good control (my A1c was in the 5.1-5.7 range throughout both my pregnancies) and see your doctor regularly. I stayed on my metformin and glyburide but I also took 5-8 units of insulin in the last few months to help with my after dinner readings.
