Hi I am 29 years old and I have type 2 diabetes my hba1c level was quite high when checked recently. I have now found out I'm pregnant and I'm really worried as I have read a lot that diabetes especially that which is pre existing and poorly controlled can cause birth defects. Before I found out I was pregnant I had started eating a lot and craving sweet things which now I regret eating as I've read the problems occur in first trimester. I guess I'm just really scared and I wanted to see if anyone else has had healthy babies with pre existing diabetes. And any advice you can give. Thank you.
