    Hi everyone, I've found out a few weeks ago I'm pregnant! Earlier this week we've discovered it's twins! I've been a type 1 diabetic for 17 years and have background retinopathy and slight maculopathy for which I've had 1 laser treatment. Just wondered if any other type 1's could give me some advice or any of their experiences with twin pregnancy! Thanks!

    Congratulations! Tagging @azure as she is great on pregnancyinfo.
    I guess your team are already keeping an eye on you and will work with you on how to best look after you and the babies.

    Congratulations! My nos 2 and 3 are twins. Feel free to pm me any questions. Mine are dcda and my pregnancy was not treated as much more high risk than a normal type 1 one. The cut off/out date was a week earlier but they were premature anyway. I wouldn't recommend moving house too close to the end! Pm me where you are in the country as i'm decluttering atm and would love to give some baby twin stuff away.
