Hello! I have been diabetic Type 1 for almost 27 years.I don't have any diabetic complications (thank God) yet. I am 34 years old. I wear an omnipod. My A1C are not perfect, in the 7 range. The lowest I have ever been in my life is 7.2. I take regular control, but I know there is room for improvement. I could afford to loose about 20 lbs...

I got married 2 years ago and we are starting to consider getting pregnant. I am a little scare (more a lot!) and I dont even know where to start. I go to my endo every 4 mos and the gyno every year, like any other girl. I have never discussed getting pregnant with either, and I know I have to do it in my next visit. Who do I tells first? Do they have to work together? how does that even work? I live in the Rio Grande valley in South Texas, moved here 5 years ago. If anybody is from this area and is trying to get pregnant or has been pregnant, please reach out to me. I would love to talk to somebody about this and for somebody to recommend doctors. Any replies will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks guys!!!
