    hi...anyone out there pregnant right now? feeling lonely! i'm eloise & been T1 for nearly 12 years. i've had 2 children, 9 & 2 and a couple of early miscarriages (which i reckon were caused by high BS).

    i'm almost 7 weeks pregnant (compete surprise! last A1c was 6.8 and i've been pretty controlled thank goodness), i know it's very early days and things don't always progress. i've had an early scan that only showed a gestational sac & yolk, so am booked in to go back mon 26/3 to see what's in there!

    blood sugar levels going crazy, have already increased insulin by around 35%. getting fair share of hypos too.

    anyone else? pregnancy & diabetes sure is an interesting mix!

    Hi there I've also recently found out I'm pregnant, I'm only about 6 weeks, this is my first baby and have been type 1 for 12 years!! Currently on pump therapy which is great and really helped to lower my bg!! Really excited but extremley nervous at the same time! Hoping to get my bg as tight as possible to help baby, any advice on pregnancy and diabetes would be much appreciated :) and congrats weezer :) x

    Also meant to add I too have had to alter my insulin as one minute I end up going crazy and then keep getting hypos I guess it's just our hormones :)

    Congrats Nicky and Weezer,

    For pregnancy and diabetes, you have to follow a special diet but make ensure that blood sugar levels remain in normal ranges. Crabs intake at each meal must be 45 g and each snack 30 g.

    Congratulations Weezer.

    I'm pregnant also and been diagnosed with gestational diabetes. I'm currently 21 weeks, so you are not alone if you ever want to chat.
