I got diabetic whe I was 30 yrs old i.e. 2 yrs after my first child was born. Untill then, all my glucose results were normal. But since I got diagnosed with diabetes my hba1c has been consistently above 10. Been on Glucophage.
Just found out I’m pregnant second time and very very nervous. Luckily my reading since a month hasn’t gone above 8. Been actively controlling diet and walking often.
How did you manage your pregnancy if you were already diabetic? Is the child always born with diabetes? Were you able to get through preg without insulin shots? Anything I must watch for in particular?
