      Hi, hope you don't mind me asking some questions. during my preg I brought down my sugars rapidly unfortunately my retinopathy flared until it got to vitrectomy stage.it was awful, I have macular oedma now. My question really is did you had any more children and were your eyes were ok in 2nd pregnancy?I desperately want another but can't face losing more vision! I Thanks
      I'm just following up on your post on the thread I started. Thanks for your interest. IS this method of communication best for you? I can email you direct too if you are happy to give me an address. I am ideally looking for someone who was Type 2 during pregnancy. I have T1 and GDM covered now. Might you fit the bill?! If so then I will fill you in on what we are up to :o)
      Best wishes
