Hello all! I just found this forum and it looks great! Can’t wait to really start reading and seeing how others feel about their T1D.

I’m a 38 year old female diagnosed in 2005. I’ve been using the Omnipod since 2013 and love it. I am hoping to conceive in the next few months so the pregnancy topics will really be helpful!



Welcome! Glad to see your post. I’ll look forward to seeing more.

Hello Stephanie and welcome,

So glad you found us! Many of us have lived with diabetes for a long time. I was diagnosed almost 57 years ago (July 28 is my “Diaversary”)! I have two children and would be happy to answer any questions as you go through your pregnancy. Mine, I think, were more difficult on my spouse than on me, but that was before I went on a pump or CGM. You said you are using the Omnipod pump. Are you using a CGM as well? It could help with changing blood sugars. I know it would have helped me!

I hope you have a safe and healthy.I believe there are already some discussions about diabetes and pregnancy on the Forum. Check them out! Never hesitate to ask any questions as well. We are all here to help if we can!

T1D 57 years and counting!
