For those of you who have been reading my blog for a while, you know that I wrote extensively about both of my pregnancies. After my first pregnancy, I was actually contacted to share my experiences on Type 1 diabetes and pregnancy for a book to be published.
Well I am happy to report that the book is finally here!! It’s called Pregnancy with Type 1 Diabetes: Your Month-to-Month Guide to Blood Sugar Management and two of my favorite diabetics, Jenny Smith (my CDE!) and Ginger Vieira wrote it. I was actually given an advanced copy and I have read it and I think it will help out so many people who are going through pregnancy with Type 1 diabetes.
My story has also been featured in the book, although re-reading what I said I wish I had been a little bit more encouraging. I focused on the day to day dealings and some of the difficulties but I don’t want to discourage any T1Ds from getting pregnant. I have two amazing boys to prove that it’s possible and the hard work is worth it!
So if you or someone you know is pregnant or thinking about getting pregnant (and has T1D obviously) then tell them to check this book out. I’m so excited it’s finally been published! Congrats to Jenny and Ginger!
