If you have diabetes, it does not mean that you cannot deliver a healthy baby, or even that you will have pregnancy complications. It does mean that you will have to pay close attention to your health and have a solid medical team behind you. Before you conceive, find a physician who specializes in diabetes and pregnancy. Once you do conceive, you must find an ophthalmologist, as vision problems are a diabetes complication that is quite common in pregnancy.

You will need to make sure that your blood sugar is stable for at least three months prior to conception, so you should increase your glucose monitoring to 6-8 times per day.

Working with your doctor, you can figure out a meal plan that will help with your diabetes m...
