my husband and I have just learned that we are pregnant. I have been a type 1 for 13 years and my last A1c was 7.5 which was up from the last two of 7.1 and 6.5. I take A LOT of medicine icluding dieretics, blood pressure, thyroid, cholesterol..... Both my husband and I are a bit scared and surprised (basically full of many emotions)! He more so due to the fact that all he can think about is something happening to me or being in a situation of choosing who lives me or our baby!.... My concerns are more about how to help him, and what I can expect our pregnancy to be like??? I am on an insulin pump and currently check BG 6x a day at min.
The thought of "high risk" is in fact causing the fear in my husband. I wish I could help him see how many women are high risk pregnancies!
I am very excited (directly followed by scaryness) and REALLY looking forward to others thoughts, storys from their pregnancies, or anything to help calm my crazy nerves right now!!
