Me and my husband are trying to conceive but I have diabetes type 2. I found out that I had diabetes type 2 about 4 years ago. What I'm concerned about is if having diabetes type 2 will make it difficult to conceive. I'm also concerned about what happens when and if I do get pregnant, will I have trouble with the pregnancy? Will this hurt my baby in any way. I really can't imagine my life without children and I think my husband feels the same way. Does anyone know anything about diabetes and pregnancy? If you do, please share with me. Thanks very much!
