Diabetes and Pregnancy


In 2012, I gave birth to the most beautiful boy on the face of this planet (yep, totally biased). As much as I’d love to say pregnancy was a blast, it wasn’t.

Being pregnant with type-1 diabetes was a HUGE challenge.

There were so many moments I should have been rejoicing through the experience, but instead I worried.

I worried that my blood sugars weren’t perfect enough.

I worried that my exercise was causing damage.

I worried I was gaining too much weight.

I worried about every gram of food I was ingesting.

There were a lot of unknowns, and not much support.

I blogged throughout my 37-week journey about the highs and lows of pregnancy with type-1 diabetes as a way to document the experience, but also in the hopes of helping someone else down the road.
