    Some of you may remember I had my son Arlo last year after a very complicated pregnancy (none of it diabetes related) my waters broke at 19 weeks, he was born at 27 weeks and tragically passed away 6 weeks and a day later.


    We have been ttc for a few months and I got a positive on Monday! I feel my sugars aren’t the best and it’s not through lack of trying!!! With arlo they were perfect,now I feel I’ve lost my confidence a little and as if pregnancy isn’t going to be stressful enough!!!

    We don’t know if Arlo had an infection or not or if the cause of his condition was genetic! We have a healthy 6 year old but the risk of a repeat of Arlo is 1 in 4!

    Congratulations on your news. I will not say that you must put the past behind you because apart from being a crass thing to say, it would be impossible. All you can do is try your best to do whatever is in your power to have a happy outcome and I will keep my fingers firmly crossed for the next nine months. Hugs, lass.

    I was not posting here last year so did not follow what happened with Arlo. All I can say is that I am absolutely delighted for you with the news of your pregnancy and will be very much following your progress this and next year. You suggest that your sugars aren't the best. Which of any of us have the best sugars? None of us actually. All you or any of us can do is our best that we can. I don't mean to be silly but another way of looking at a 1 in 4 chance of what sadly happened with little Arlo is a 3 in 4 chance of it not happening. I must say again that I am absolutely delighted for you.

    Wishing you and your family the all the very best. Although I am sure nothing can make up for your loss a new addition to your family is something to be celebrated in its own right!

    Congratulations
