    Hi all,

    I recently found out that me and my partner are expecting a little bundle of joy, I’m a type one diabetic and very nervous about what to expect and how to cope during pregnancy.

    If anyone has any advice and tips to help me with I’d be so grateful.

    Thank you

    Hi,

    All I can contribute is congratulations.. To you & your partner/hubby.

    I've already been mistaken for a girl elswhere on the forum. (Please don't ask.)

    You will be brilliant! :)

    Tell your team asap. Take folic acid. Have a dance round the kitchen to celebrate, there is hard work ahead but you'll manage.

    I have doctors on Tuesday, I’ve put myself on a strict diet. Stopped the energy drinks, smoking etc I’m currently sticking to drinking water and limiting my self to fizzy drinks
