I'm new to this community. My husband and I just had our most recent doctor's appointment. I am 28 and was diagnosed with type 1 when I was 11. We tried for a year with no results and found out my husband has "very low" sperm. My doctor this morning suggeted IVF. Money is hard, but we can do it. It's wroth it of course. I'm scared to try it; I'm scared it won't work; I'm scared it will and I'll miscarry because of my diabetes. I'm scared if I carry the baby to term it will have horrible birth defects no matter how in control I am. Furthermore, I'm afraid I won't be able to stay in control. I will work my butt off, I know myself, but what happens if hormones cause your sugar to go into the 200's the way diabetes sometimes does? How do you maintain a normal life and not succumb to total and complete terror and fear over the health of your baby?
