Like "HI, It was suggested to me 28 years ago, that one should be in good control for a year before getting pregnant. Although my son is now 28 my pregnancy was hard. I was not in good control, was hospitalized 5 different times, took loads of insulin night & day, and my son was delivered by c-section 8lbs 3oz. Not to scare you, but please be in the very best control before getting pregnant. Best of Luck to you and your future baby!!!"
