TTC with a Heavy Diabetes

Postby obstinacy » Tue Jun 27, 2017 4:00 am

Hi, ladies! I have diabetes since I was 20. At first, it didn’t cause me much trouble. I took my insulin shots and all was ok. When I was 30, I started to have some problems with my kidneys. I feel ok, but my GP says that it’s better for me not to get pregnant. Is there anybody here with the same health problem? How did you manage to conceive?

Hi, dear! As far as I know, diabetes can cause some risks for pregnancy but ladies with diabetes can still deliver healthy children. If I were in your shoes, I would recommend as many health specialists as possible before making the final decision. Of course, you shouldn’t risk by any means. If your kidney problems turn to be quite serious, it’s better to apply for a surrogacy. You need to be healthy to take care after your child. Good luck in whatever you choose!

My latest bloodwork revealed my hemoglobin A1c levels put me in the pre-diabetic range. This was right after a mc, but my doctor said that wouldn't have caused it. He did say it could cause problems later on in pregnancy if I were to develop diabetes. I believe it increases your chances of developing pre-eclampsia and having to deliver early due to baby's higher birth weight. I'm not sure what else it can affect or how that changes if you already have diabetes before becoming pregnant.

My doc's prescription to me was the ever lovely "lose some weight!" so I've been really careful about what I'm eating an have lost a few pounds.

I'm assuming if your diabetes is under control, it shouldn't affect your ability to become pregnant. You may be considered a higher risk pregnancy so they may monitor you more closely, but I'm not aware of any reason you wouldn't be able to carry a baby. :)

Obstinacy, I thought you might find this helpful. It's a list of studies done in regards to insulin resistance/diabetes in early pregnancy. https://sites.google.com/site/miscarria ... -resistanc

Hi, everyone! OP, I think all depends on how serious your kidney problems are. Of course, you can get pregnant and ignore the advice of your doctor, but are really sure that everything ends positively? Like you, I had some problems with my blood pressure and had to deliver when I was only 6 months pregnant. I lost my child because his heart was too weak. It was a big blow both for me and my hubby. We decided to try a surrogacy and a surrogate mum gave birth to our little baby angel.
P.S. Our son was delivered exactly on time without any health problems.

Hi, ladies. Thanks for your posts. They’ve become a real help to me. I do know that there are quite a lot of ladies who manage to conceive, carry and give birth to a healthy child with diabetes. I think I need to consult more specialists to be able to make the right decision. BeeCee33, thanks for your clues. I’ve found loads of useful information there. Trin, I’m really sorry to hear your story. God bless you, hun! It’s great that you’ve managed to find a good surrogate who helped you to become a mum.

Obstinancy, if you need a surrogate (I hope you won’t look for her.), you need to check how the clinic is going to treat her. Will they supply her with all necessary things during her pregnancy? How will they charge fees for their services? Will you be able to meet your surrogate?
P.S. I think before doing anything you need to surf more info on the net. If you have any questions, you may ask me. I’ll be really happy to help you.

Hi dear. I am totally surprised to see that you are facing the same problem like me. I am so sorry about your case, but I believe everything will be okay. First of all, I would like to advise you not to give up with your plan of embarking of trying to conceive again. I trust that God is your shepherd and he will surely guide you through the pregnancy period. You should not miss this golden opportunity to take maximum benefit from my personal life experience to conceive effectively with heavy diabetes. Secondly, I would like to advise to greatly consider consulting Lotus Clinic in Ukraine, the best in pregnancy-related problems. They are well versed on the general topic of diabetes and pregnancy, which is why they are in a better position to give you better tips. You must start to try balancing your glucose level. What is it that is stopping you from balancing it? You definitely have got the potential. You can easily maintain high hemoglobin level in your blood with rich iron and folic acid to create a beneficial platform to conceive after a period of 14 to 16 days intercourse. Therefore, if you just trust in yourself and put the focus on what is best for you, you will certainly make it. Above all, it is important that you first seek medical help for your kidney condition before you embark on TTC. Most importantly, you should understand that trying to conceive when suffering from diabetes exposes to the risks of miscarrying. It is also clinically proven that people with diabetes are more likely to give birth to large babies. This increases the risks involved with giving birth. I hope my experience will help someone. Best of luck for upcoming motherhood to all the pregnant woman in advance. Be safe and stay blessed.
