This all sounds too familiar. I have had diabetes since I was 7 yrs old (I am now 37). I took shots for 23 yrs and have been on the pump for 7. I was always told that I would not be able to have children ~ in fact I was talked into have my tubes tied at age 26. I have had an angioplasty and diabetic retinopathy with many years of high blood sugar levels. When I got on the pump things changed dramatically. My A1c was down to 5.8 and I haven't had a problem with my diabetes since I was 18 years old. Good news ~ I now have a 4 yr old daughter. I had to do in-vitro since my tubes were tied. My pregnancy couldn't have went better. No problems what so ever. The best thing that I ever did. If you want to have children ~ do it!! Plan ahead. Get involved with your endo and OB and do all the necessary things that need to be done in order to have a healthy pregnancy. Good luck!
