Preggies and Diabetic
Good day, i just discovered this forum. I normally post on the diabetes chatline. Well i am 35 weeks 4 days pregnant today and i asked this q before, Well i suppose i got my answer, but as time goes on and i'm reaching the end, i am a bit scared now as i read some HORRIBLE stories about giving birth. Ok my q is will baby be fine, will i be fine. will everything go well. According to my doc, everything will be fine and i must not stress, but i am really starting to be scared now. This diabetic story was discovered when i fell preggies but doc think i was diabetic all along, just not aware. I would also like to know about breastfeeding, i asked this q on the breastfeeding forum and the answer was YES i can, but is it really safe. Ag man i just feel so scared now all of a sudden. Thanking you
