Hi everyone I haven't posted in a while in June I found out I was 6 weeks pregant after endless pregnancy test and after negative blood results I finally did get the answer that I was carrying life inside me. I am 17 years old (18 in Jan) although for most expectant mothers this is the time to be joyful and full of excitement... But for me all I can do worry about is my baby. will my type one diabetes effect this and could I lose little bean? Will I make it to full term without problems, My diabetes is very much under control and I have more lows then I do highs my diabetic health care team and midwife are so pleased with me and they aren't concerend at all. I see them weekly up at the hospital I just want to be able to get excited but I can't see myself holding my much wanted baby at all I can't see myself being a mum but then again I never thought I could get pregant from health condition, I'm scared to death in case something goes wrong what if I end up having a miscarriage? that is my worst fear ever! I've had an early pregnancy scan and everything looked perfect I'm currently booked in for my 12 week scan/dating scan on Tuesday. I found out I was pregant at 6 weeks and everyday up unril now has been a blessing knowing my baby has made it to 12 weeks! My expectant due date is March the 13/14 2017 but I'll be induced 2 weeks earlier so at 38 weeks!
My concerns are
. Are my chances of carrying less likely then non diabetic mums
. Do first time diabetic mothers carry with their first?
. can I be excited and happy? Can I allow myself to relax
Please someone reasure me:(
