I have 2 children ages 28 and 26, neither of them are a type 1. As a matter-of-fact my youngest is hypoglycemic.

When I was carrying both my children, I did have a few more insulin reactions (hypos). They put me in the hospital to "get under better control". My blood sugars went crazy while I was in the hospital both times so I was let out quickly. I had all day sickness so that was a BIG problem. They also had me do a baby movement count every day. I had to count the movements of each baby every day for 15 minutes. The problem with this is they didn't tell me I could stop after I reached 100. So I'd have numbers of 500 and up to 800! Bot of my children were taken early and via c-section. But then that is how it was done 28 years ago. The c-sections were necessary. Even if I wasn't a diabetic I couldn't have delivered a baby.
I'm discovering that menopause is much harder on me than the pregnancies ever were.
But I'd look for another doctor. There's no reason why a diabetic woman cannot have a baby.
