On July 21, 2011 my daughter made her much anticipated debut!
Despite my having this disease for almost 30 years (and turning 40 next week,) it did not touch her during my pregnancy.
Sara was born by c-section at 37.1 weeks, weighing in at 7.2# and was 17.75" long. The pediatricians had expected her to go to the NICU, but she did not need to and had perfect glucose levels after birth. Our pediatrician said that if I hadn't told her that I had Type 1 DM, she would not have known that this child's mom had any chronic illness.
If I can do, so can all of you!
Diabetes be damned . . . you lose this time!
