  1. Hi there
    I’m about 7 weeks pregnant with type one diabetes and I’ve been bleeding like I have my regular period and usually have a cramp and a really sore back. I don’t see a specialist till next week as I’ve been on the waiting list for three weeks but went to see my doctor’s and my sugars were not good. I’m abit worried that I’ve miscarried but have to wait till I see the specialist.

  2. I’m a type 1 diabetic and my blood sugars are high. I eat every hour but I eat a full course meal and I walk. My moods are all over the place and my hormones are too, what are the symthoms of pregnancy with type 1 diabetes? I am very nervous and scared this is my first pregnancy. I go to sleep early at night and I have real bad night sweats
