Just new to this...got a few questions.

Hello, Im a 40 year old who has had type 1 for 35 years. I have a 12 year old type 1 daughter who's had it for 10 years.

We both pump. She's on the Medtronic and I went with the Animas Ping. Im relatively new to pumping (since this past July) so far so good.

Just started the referral process to do IVF with my husband.
I had a great pregnancy with my daughter, but Im not 28 any more...nervous but excited about this next step in life.
Anyone been through a 40+ pregnancy with type 1?

Two of my friends had healthy babies in their early 40's. Both were diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes early in thier childhood. Best of luck!
