Okay i've heard a few different things... I heard that it is hard to have a child when you have type 2 diabetes. I've also heard that its just as easy to have a child. My husband and I have been trying for 4 years and nothing has happened. I need answers. If I ask my doctor she tells me not to have one. I don't want someone to tell me to or not to have one, I want to know if i'm able too. Rolling Eyes

Yes you can get pregnant with type 2 diabetes. If you ask me you should get a new md. During your pregnancy you may need to take insulin to keep tight control on your blood sugar. Also most ob/gyn's do early 3-d ultrasounds if available in your area to check heart development. However, if you are having a hard time getting pregnant I suggest you see a endocrinologist. He will check your thyriod. A lot of type 2 diabetics have throid disorders and do not know it. This can cause problems with getting pregnant. Im a type 2 insulin dependant diabetic and went to an endocrinologist and learned all this.. Also my ob/gyn specialized in reproductive endocrinology during his residency. You need lots of lab work from a specialist who can help you. Hope this helps!! Good luck!!

I went and had my blood work done on nov. 19, I haven't heard anything back yet, so I guess no news is good news. Also I go to an endocrinologiest already, but it seems to me, he doesn't really do much, he checks my sugars, and if I need refills he refills them for me. Besides that my doc does most of it. I'm just waiting hoping my a1c is lower, when I found out I had diabetes it was 10.6 last time I had it checked I was at 8.0. Also i'm already on actos 15 mg, and metformin 500 mg twice a day. Who knows I will just keep on trying, hopefully one day I will have a lil cookie cruncher.

Hello maybe I can be a little help, I do not have sugar but I do have pcos and my doctor has put me on the metformin because it helps you ovulate and I take 500mg 3 times a day also you need to get a new ob/gyn because there are things to help you have a baby. I just started on my fertility meds this month and also they have came out with a 4d ultrasound I go to a womens clinic and we have it, its very new but it helps with keeping track better after you get pregnant. And yes you can get pregnant my step mom just had her first baby after being married to my dad for 16 yrs and she has sugar really bad but her ob/gyn is great she started her on the fertility meds and kept track of her sugar and the baby came out fine, she is health and the sweetest thing you have ever seen so if I was you I would start looking for a better doctor :d


good luck and if you have any questions let me know
