I just spent a week with my mother in law and we got to talking about me having a baby and she was upset!!! She feels that we shld just adopt due to me being type 1 diabetic. She stated she knew two women who had babies and they both lost their lives shortly after giving birth. The one ended up needing a kidney transplant ,amputation of a leg, retinopathy which leaded into blindness, then she passed at age 42. She was 40 tho when she gave birth. She stated these 2 were sisters but according to them and their familes these complications were related to getting preg. I guess im just nervouse as heck. R the odds of this happening high? I do kno diabetcis having having healthy babies and pregnancy, but what r the odds? AM i better off not taking the chance? I guess im just realy down on this and i dont know what to do. Is it a gamble with my life?
