Women with Diabetes....

Hi ladies,

I have type 2 Diabetes I'm 25 & married my DH & I started TTC & I got pregnant twice & unfortunately I miscarried both babies, my new doctor told me it was due to my diabetes (which I didn't know I had when I miscarried the babies because the OB I had never told me) so he is helping me control my sugar levels & he said once I have my sugar controlled that I can TTC again & as long as I keep my sugar under control I can have as many babies as I want. Have any of you with Diabetes have had a successful pregnancy? I am a little scared to try because I'm afraid to miscarry again even though my sugar has been controlled. Just need positive comments. Thank you =)

  • I'm not in the situation but my grandma had 5 children while having diabetes. My friend had 1. Her diabeted wasn't discovered until after her 2nd daughter was born. She watched her diet and exercised and was able to concieve again.
