Dear God Claire do not be governed by that article. Remember you are in control If you feel that you are in any danger whilst pregnant phone your diab nurse/doctor. Without a pump I have had three healthy children without any problems to them or me.
Positives are that every month you have a scan so you see your babe and really bond by 34 weeks (going back 12 yrs now) you have a scan every 2 weeks. With twins it is automatic every two weeks. Enjoy your pregnancy do not dwell “on what if !”be positive. Generally it is those gestation diabetics who have the problems not us full time ones.
Much love to you and hope all goes well.
