I started a new drug called
Byetta on Jan 13. I have added a new section to the site where
I am documenting my experience with it. You will find the
following sites have graciously provided links to Diabetic
please visit them
This site has hours of content to browse through and covers
just about every question men and women have about pregnancy.
I especially love it because it's easy to understand and is
laid out so that you can find everything.
Personal Welcome to You!
Everyone is welcome - type 1, type 2, and those of you with
gestational diabetes. You are even welcome just if you are
at high risk for developing diabetes in the future!
understand how hard it is to find information on diabetes
- especially when you look for specific topics such as diabetes
in pregnancy or women's issues in regards to diabetes.
started this web site and forum after I experienced a very
lonely pregnancy. I was scared and sometimes confused with
all the information being given to me. Most of the information
was very negative and was given in a very depressing manner.
I wanted more information, but my health care team did not
have the time.
sonogram or amniotic fluid check caused a little anxiety.
Every abnormality, lessened kick count, pain, or cramp made
me feel something was terribly wrong. A sick day, like the
stomach flu, could make my blood sugar too low and require
non-diabetic friends just didn't fully understand. It was
hard to explain why I had so many appointments or why I had
to go for non stress tests and fetal monitoring. When I tried
to express my stress, one person called me a drama queen -
invalidating my worry. I longed for support or some type of
community, but could not find one.
hope you find the friends and support you are looking for
in the forum here...or message board...or discussion group...whatever
you want to call it. There are lots of wonderful women in
hope all you find what you are looking for - and your familes
and loved ones too. This place is for all of you - you deserve
it! - Diabetic Mommy
