Diabetes and pregnancy type 2

Common Questions and Answers about Diabetes and pregnancy type 2


Avatar n tn Hi Rasha, I have type 2 diabetes. It's tough because six months I got diagnosed and lost my first baby due to miscarriage. However, since being diagnosed, I've really been taking charge of it. I'm 5, almost 6 weeks pregnant again so as nervous as I am, I feel very comfortable about this pregnancy and managing my diabetes this time around. Let me know if you have any questions or concerns, I'm here for you sweetie!

1574695 tn?1322594197 my dr sai the last two tests they did u wouldnt know i was diabeteic as my control is good, i asked if i needed to switch and test everyday and he said no, but then told me to stop taking them and wait until the specialist tells me if i can take them, i havent styopped them as i would rather be safe then lose my baby again, there is so much conflicting infomation about metformin, and being type 2 and with pcos makes it a nightmare..
521895 tn?1212597611 I was very sensitive to low-blood sugars and passed out 2 times. Then, I developed acute anemia (not related to my diabetes) and had 2 transfussions. I also could not eat and began vomiting all the time and was gaining 3 lbs. of water per day. I went into labor at 34 weeks, but her lungs were not ready. The doctors stopped the labor three times and at 35 weeks, my daughter was born weighing 6 lbs. 9 oz.. She was very healthy.
15841990 tn?1443415521 When you get pregnant, all kinds of hormones and things get working a bit differently. Some people end up with Type 2 after experiencing gestational diabetes and some don't. What's important is, drink plenty of water, get exercise, watch your carbs and pay attention to your health for the sake of your baby.
Avatar n tn Does anyone else have type 2 diabetes with pregnancy? I'm not eating a ton of carbs but my numbers are still on the high side.
Avatar f tn I have a friend who is a type 1 diabetic and had 2 boys that are healthy. Both came earlier then full term, but that is normal for diabetes.
Avatar n tn Many people with type 2 diabetes do not know they have it, although it is a serious condition. Type 2 diabetes is becoming more common due to increasing obesity and failure to exercise. Gestational diabetes is high blood glucose that develops at any time during pregnancy in a woman who does not have diabetes. Women who have gestational diabetes are at high risk of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease later in life.

Avatar n tn Hello my question is I'm a 40 year old woman with type 2 diabetes I really would love to have a fourth child is this at all possible with my age and with diabetes?
Avatar f tn I was thinking I was done after 2 kids and now at almost 35 and with uncontrolled diabetes, I find myself pregnant with #3. I'm freaking out because I was not ready, did not plan for this and A1C has been 9.0 for 6 months, if not longer. So worried about birth defects, I'm scared. My first OB appt is in two days. From what I can figure, I'm about 10 weeks. Anyone else out there in the same boat?
215816 tn?1212494007 I took the one hour test, and they were able to tell I had whats called gestsational diabetes ( happens to pregnant women during pregnancy) usually it goes away after you give birth, in my case it turned into type 1 diabetes . If you are a type 2 you can control it with keeping your weight down, and eating a healthy diet, some people need med. but those tend to be people who are over weight or not eating right. hope this helps..
Avatar f tn I also have pre-existing type 2 diabetes. My A1C went from 6.2 to 5.4 and my Drs are happy with that and my sugars have been good. Had an US yesterday and baby is measuring at 34 almost 35weeks and I'm only 32. Dr said her belly is measuring at 36 weeks but that he can't really judge by that because that is normal for diabetics. I'm miserable and I feel like a blimp. I'm due aug8 but my dr has pretty much decided that I'm not going to make that long.
1139597 tn?1292878471 Well I am now a little over 5 weeks and now I wonder if the m/c in Nov. 09 was because my DH has Type 2 Diabetes. Does anyones hubby, fiance, or boyfriend have Type 2 Diabetes?
Avatar f tn In most cases of true Gestational Diabetes it is gone as soon as the placenta is expelled, it is related to hormonesthat cause your cells to be insulin resistant For some women, they still have diabetic symptoms even after the baby (placenta) is born, but most of them are thought to probably have had undetected Type 2 (rarely Type 1) Diabetes even before they were pregnant..
Avatar n tn First of all Type 2 diabetes does run in the family. I had gestational diabetes in two of my pregnancies. Lately but not everysingle day however more often now I am continuously feeling nausiated, at times a headache or mild diziness with it. At times I go to the toilet feeling as if I am going to vomit (but I dont). I am absolutely not pregnant (I had a tubal ligation). there are times when I get shaky or irritable or feel a head rush without food. I am 5'4" inches tall.
Avatar f tn I have had type 1 diabetes for around 8 years now. Me and my husband are trying to get pregnant. I've had 2 miscarriages. I'm just wondering what are some tips or advice that you guys have? What foods should I eat? Anyone had this problem? Just looking for advice in what to do. I do shots right now but am looking into insulin pump.
Avatar f tn I am a type 2 diabetic and I am pregnant, I also have high blood pressure and my liver enzymes are a little high. I wanted to know what complications each of these things could cause for the health of my baby and also myself. I am was told by my doctor I am at high risk and was put on bed rest, I am 14 weeks along in my pregnancy and am really concerned.
Avatar n tn that specializes in high risk pregnancies. I have type 1 diabetes and have had 4 healthy pregnancies that all ended up with healthy children. The relationship with my Dr was very close and I felt very comfortable asking him anything. Did your doc tell you anything else like if there was something you could do to prevent it? Have you thought about a second opinion? I know it is scary but you are your best advocate! Do some research, talk with your Dr and get a second opinion!
9151406 tn?1401990253 You must have amedication for diabetes during pregnancy , but not orally ..Insulin is safe during pregnancy . Type of delivery will be decided by your doctor . The born child will not get diabetes from you , it is not a contageous disease , but people with family history of diabetes are more likely to have this disease at any age of their life according to lifestyle and amount of insulin in their bodies. No, Insulin is the drug of choice here ,.
Avatar n tn My doctor told me birth weight would probably increase with each pregnancy. I tested many, many times a day...before meals and an hour and a half after meals (and any other time I thought I felt different as I tend to obsess over my Bg. readings! )and tried to keep my Bgs. below 100 in the mornings, below 120 before meals and below 140 after meals. It is hard work, but well worth the effort.
Avatar f tn I realize that having a GDM pregnancy increases my risk for developing type 2 diabetes in the future by up to 50%. I have already accepted this risk as fact. However, I would like a third child, but am concerned that the risk for developing type 2 diabetes increases with each pregnancy. I found this statement on another site: "The more pregnancies you have with GDM, the greater the risk for type 2 diabetes. The risk approaches 100% if you have three such pregnancies." Is this true?
Avatar f tn 1) If your fiance has Type 2 diabetes that is recently diagnosed and is now under control, his outlook for life is actually quite good. There are many individuals who have had Type 2 diabetes for years and years, and do not develop any complications at all. Some do, but there are treatments for that as well. Much of this is in your fiance's and his physician's hands--good control will help him live a long and healthy life. But he needs to take charge.
