I've been speaking with doctors, who have told me that because I am a type 1 diabetic, I will not be allowed to give birth anytime AFTER my due date, and will probably be induced earlier than my due date. I'm not really happy about this - I'd rather wait until my body is ready to give birth than be forced to do it! I'm wondering why diabetics are forced to get induced - are there serious risks for the baby, just by me being a diabetic?!

Dear All,

My diabetes was very well controlled before getting pregnant with my first one. My Hb1Ac was between 5.9 and 6.2 for years.

Unfortunately, pregnancy has changed everything. The control that I used to have is not accurate anymore. It happens that my BG goes up which I can bring back down but with difficulty, but it happens more often that my BG falls into the 20s within minutes. I was usually able to notice it whenever my BGtended to go down, but now, most of the times it is already too late by the time I notice. I was very lucky because my husband was always around to assist when I fell into hypoglycemia. I am just worried for this to happen when he is not around, I am only 3 months pregnant and have a long way to go.

I am concerned about the baby's health. I would really appreciate any advice that I can get. Thank you very much for your time.
