    Yeah I am so lucky, I'm glad you've got great support too. It definitely helps!
    Exactly, sometimes life is to short and if it feels right for you then go with it

    I think that as they've opened up fertility centres again its getting better. I hate that diabetes can define people and I have always lived with the moto along as I am sensible and take care I am no different and I can do what everyone else does!

    Good luck with it and send me a message if you ever need to chat x

    It would be amazing to hear what your pre-conception consultant says re TTC? All I got was a generic letter strongly advising me not to try for a pregnancy ....which hasn’t stopped us (too old, too depressing to!) but instead has just made me super anxious for months!!

    I’ll speak to her in a couple of weeks’ time and let you know what she says then :) I agree it’s so depressing to hold off, and the longer it continues the more I feel that we might as well just give it a go because normality won’t return for ages anyway!
