I have Type 2 diabetes and just found out I am pregnant. I also have hypertension. I turn 35 on Tuesday and my first OB appt is on Thursday. I'm kinda scared.

Any advise.

I feel kind of stupid giving you any advice, since I have never been pregnant myself.
But....the most important thing is to take care of yourself. If you are controlling your sugar, eating healthy and exercising, you are taking care of your baby too. Keep positive and try to reduce stress around you so that your baby will be happy and calm.
Is it your first baby?
