a short story.

I have just found out I'm waiting my first child - and been overly happy about it. For a day.
Today I visited my own doctor, who did me my normal check up ( I'm type 1 diabetic ) - and got told that because my balance is so bad, I should abort my child or then wait for a while - and see do I miscarry.

I also had unexplainly high BP and white cells, indicating other possible problems too.
My doctor told that my success rate of staying alive is less than 25% - and that my child will born malfunctioned

I've decided to try to go further, but do you think I did the right choice?

Actually
Yes this belongs here.
Firstly welcome to Just Mommies.

and as for the right choice. Only you can answer that. You must look into your heart. Personally I cannot abort even if the odds are bleak. Secondly there is still a chance that things will be ok. I would take that chance.

Are your sugars controled or way out there. I am type 2 diabetic but my sugars are excellent. So a pregnancy for me would be a challenge but not a difficult one.

Where are you from?

Oh Dear.
Do you know why your numbers are so bad?
Are you eating appropriately and exercising? Is there something you can do to help you take control?

My doctors think problem is with the doses of my medication, but can't be really sure.
I know I've had my own tiny age problems with the insulin resistance, so that can be it too.
Also another thought problem is that because I have very sensitive stomach, I may have various bowel disorders and allergies.

I have urine examination later on this week, so hope that solves a bit.

Just popping in....

Personally, 1st thing I would do is see a different Dr and get a second opinion. Dr's that are optimistic are so much nicer and easier to talk to! If you are only 4 weeks pregnant then you have time still to get those sugars in control but you have to do it now. The decision is yours.

I was pre-diabetic with my pregnancies and first one controlled through diet, second through insulin. With my 1st pregnancy I saw this horrible Dr every month that was so negative. He told me my baby was going to die or have heart problems, but that wasn't true.(Who needs a Dr like that around?!) With my 2nd pregnancy I had a much nicer Dr and he told me what could happen but was much more supportive and optimistic each time I saw him.

Medical science nowadays is wonderful and if you can get your sugar levels under control, you can have a perfectly healthy baby.

I agree with Nadine. Plus if you are only 4 weeks you don't know if nature is going to take care of business or not and there is nothing really they can do at this point to stop that.

I would see another doctor and take each day as they come.
