I wouldn’t wish what we have on my worst enemy.. and diabetes with pregnancy is not an easy journey (from personal experience).. but it didn’t stop me having a child… It has stopped me having any more..

I had to have fertility treatment to have my son, and was told that if I ended up with twins, that due to my diabetes, I couldn’t carry twins, so would have to have “selected reduction” – fortunately it didn’t happen, I was ok with the principle, but it’s always a different story when it comes to reality…

I had a nightmare time, but came out ok in the end (just!) – I am grateful for “huge” mercies and anyone who goes though it has had a lot to think about and to worry and care about.. it’s worth it, but definately not an easy choice/decision.
