Hello. I am a type 1 diabetic and have been since I was 16(25 now) I am about 11weeks and 4 days pregnant now, and couldn't be more worried. I got pregnant in 2010 and miscarried at 7 weeks, I was never in great control on my blood sugars but after that happened I pretty much gave up completely. This past May I ended up in ICU due to dka and had/have a A1C of 13... I have had issues due to my diabetes, when I first got diagnosed I also developed Nuropathy and then two years ago I had cataract surgery on both eyes. Since the minute I found out I was prego I started checking my sugars and trying to watch everything I eat, but it is extremely difficult to control my sugars seeing how I am a brittle diabetic.
I am so worried about losing this baby or it being born with complications due to my negligence. I worry every day and going in to freak out mode when ever I have a slight pain.
Is anyone else on here a type 1? Do you worry as much?
