Hello to all of you:-)
I am coming here to get some advice/opioions or experiences from people who can truley relate.I have been a type one diabetic for nearly 30 years now, pretty much my whole life! I have been blessed that I have never had any problems or complications, I try to keep it in tight control but that is not always easY:-)
Two years ago I was so lucky to be blessed witht he birth of my first baby girl, she is wonderful healthy and is my whole world! The pregnancy on the other hand was quite hard, I ended up in the end with preclampsia, but about half way through it I had increase in blood pressure, my A1C was great throught out at 6.0 I did gain about 80 pounds, but alot of that was water weight, wich I am still trying to loose, I have lots 40 in the last two years and need to loose a lot more, I am getting there.
My question and concern is that my husband and I are finally wanting/ ready for another, but the reality of it all has set in and I am scared to death, I don't know if it will be harder or worse this time round, but then I know going into it what to expect, I wonder if I am playing with luck , yes my first child has no health problems, but will my second, I am just very very scared, but do want another child. I saw both my endo and OB, and both of them said there is no reason I shouldnt, just to remember that I am high risk, I plan on loosing more weight and making sure my A1C is perfect before even trying and they will start me on the right blood pressure med from the start, but I want to here from others, how did a second pregnancy go for you, how was your baby,and find out from some that maybe there diabetes was not in good control and find out if they still had a good outcome, and do you recomend it, am I just being parnoid, ADVICE PLEASE!!
