...is that wrong?
I've had type 2 diabetes for over 15 years. It's well-controlled. I've never had a single complication from it.
My mother, grandmother, and aunt all had diabetes and delivered perfectly healthy babies....and they didn't take care of themselves at all, ate whatever they wanted, didnt test blood sugars, etc.
I'm really on top of things, test 5x a day, have been eating little to no carbs for years, my diet is solid.
I don't plan on seeing a high-risk OB...and I'm contemplating a home birth (will probably opt for hospital though).
Hubby and I are more naturalists, and want to keep doctor intervention to a minimum.
Am I being irresponsible?
