Hello everyone! whew, i've been looking for some type of website that had support for Type 1 diabetics for awhile now.
I got married last year, and my only dream has been to become a mother. I'm twenty-one years old so I'm young but I want my own family more than anything. I started chatting with my doctors about a year ago, and they put a halt on me trying to get pregnant as soon as the words came out my mouth. They told me how I would have a baby with disabilities and I would suffer many miscarriages if I can even get pregnant. Given at the time my A1C was high, it was at a 9 but I have brought it down to 7.3 and they're still having me hold off. Hearing that I may never be able to get pregnant is the worlds most tragic news to me. They even suggested as if I were to get pregnant I would need to get an abortion or if our protection fails I need to get plan B right away. This is alot for me to stomach, and I really need someone who has been going through this or has dealt with similar situations.
