I'm new here and just wanted to say "hey." Up until now I've been chatting with folks on the ADA website and haven't found it very supportive. I am happy to find a site with a focus on type 1s only.
My husband and I got married just under a year ago, (1st anniversary on June 25th!), and we have started talking about having a family. I've been working really hard to get my glucose numbers into close-to-perfect control, and that has been going very well, actually. (Unfortunately, my meals are lacking a certain...um...VARIETY). Anyway, in the process of getting all the necessary tests done to make sure my body is ready, it was discovered my thyroid is insane. I have subclinical hyperthyroidism, which means I don't exhibit the signs of hyperthyroidism, but my test results are off.
So as I got my blood sugars in better control, I was getting really excited about the prospect of a baby in our near future. I knew that type 1 diabetes and pregnancy were going to take some time and talent to work out. And now I have this problem to try to learn to control. The meds my doc has given me are not working yet. GRRRRRRRRRRR! I am so frustrated, disappointed, angry! It's the "Why me?" rant all over again.
So I guess what I'm looking for is some reassurance that pregnancy with type 1 and a thyroid problem can be done. I am seeing my endo tomorrow, and the high risk obgyn on Wednesday. Please! Share your experiences!
