Hi Te! You may want to join the group OhBaby. It's the most active group about pregnancy!

I was SO scared of pregnancy! Now I have a wonderful healthy 20 month old son. Pregnancy is a lot of work, but it is doable and totally worth it! Check out the discussion on the OhBaby forum and feel free to write me if you have questions!

Welcome to the family! On this forum you will learn so much. Most of all you will learn that you are not alone. Everyone here is supportive and will provide answers to your questions. Search the site for answers. Read the discussions and blogs for information. There are videos to help you understand diabetes and its treatment. Most of all there is family to talk to and even to vent to, if needed. Welcome home.
