Diabetic for 18 years and now I am 25 and pregnant…For the 3rd time. My first son was born preemie but at the medical students fault for breaking my water during an exam. My second was born with many complications due to the fact I went into a diabetic coma after my organs had all tried failing onme. He fought a long, hard six months. Discovering me and my fiance were blessed with this miracle about 2 weeks ago, I have just realized that I have NEVER taken such better care of myself and the diabetes. I am determined to have a healthy pregnancy and even healthier baby. I feel so much better with my bloodsugars always under 200, even after meals! Before my sugars were in the 300, 400, even 500's. My fiances' first child, my sons' new brother or sister, my little miracle is my MOTIVATION. Everyone needs it when dealing with lifetime disease. What is yours?
