I had a baby with my diabeties he is 17yrs.old now. I was in my early 40's also. I didn't have no problems with my pregnancy or delivery of him. My Dr. did have me come in every two weeks instead of the once a month thing and he did extra tests through out my 9 months of carring him. But all went well.

I would say speak with Dr. first and express your desire for
another child. He or she can share the best information with
you. You want to make sure your diabetes is well controlled.
This will minimize possible problems.
Best of Luck

My wife had our daughter when she was diabetic. We kept in touch with the Dr
and we had no problems. Good luck and just follow Dr's instructions and everything should be alright.
