Pregnancy w/T1


(Nathan) #1

Hello,
My name is Nathan and my spouse and I will be trying to get pregnant after our marriage in March of next year. She has T1 and has had it for about 23 years of her life and I wanted to ask for any advice from others with T1 or from the partners of things her and I should be aware of when trying to conceive and during pregnancy. This will be our first child. Thanks.

Hello Nathan @nathantheone87, you and your proposed spouse, are very wise to be seeking this advice now. For one thing, because with pregnancy, her body will be going through many changes so the first advice is that she have very good management of HER diabetes and everyone is a unique person. No, I’ve never been pregnant.
There is plenty of very good advice already posted here, so instead of creating a totally new “Topic”, I suggest that you enter relevant key words in the search box at the top right.
Then if she still has unanswered questions, I suggest that she then post those requests for suggestions.
