    Hi all! I don't post as much as I used to, but I wanted to make a quick post for all you parents of daughters out there. I have type 1 diabetes and delivered a healthy baby girl last month. She's 5 weeks old now and doing great. My husband and I are doing well too aside from some sleepless nights.

    My pregnancy was monitored by a high-risk obstetrics clinic and there were a lot of insulin adjustments, but our baby is totally healthy and I had a normal delivery. She was just over 8 pounds.

    I know that there can be a lot of worries about pregnancy with diabetes (Steel Magnolias, anyone?) so I wanted to share a positive story. I'd be happy to answer any questions you have about pregnancy with preexisting diabetes as well.

    Here's a picture of her from this week. We were out for a walk:

    Thank you so much Jill. Gorgeous little baby and so very kind of you to let us know your experiences. This was one of the first things a chemist told me about - when my daughter was 8 and first diagnosed - the troubles she would have! It has been in the back of my mind for nearly ten years - so thank you again. It was lovely of you to share. X

    Congratulations Jill and family! She's adorable! If you're still in the Madison area and ever need a babysitter, I'm a mom / baby nurse so let me know!
