Pregnancy Info: 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.

My 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!

I 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.

I 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.

Every 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 hospitalization.

My 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.

I 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 there!

I 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
