I admit that my diabetes has put me off having kids. More because I haven’t had a normal HbA1c until now (yay! loving my pump!) and the risks involved in being pregnant with diabetes (to the baby) than the risk of passing it on.
I’m with @Alison though – I wouldn’t wish diabetes on anyone but if my kid had it, I’d be grateful that they had ‘expert me’ on hand to help them through all the stuff you have to learn to deal with – that’s more than most get.
