DM 2 and Hypothyroid: It would be important for your wife to make sure that her diabetes type 2 is well under control. There can be many risk factors with diabetes in pregnant moms. That being said, no other planning necessary. The hypothyroidism on your side may be genetic but will be tested for after the fact.

Consult doctor: Your wife diabetes should be well controlled during pregnancy , so that you can have healthy normal baby ,,Baby born to a diabetic mother may be big in size ,may have low sugar or breathing problem but these are temporary and treatable .Your hypothyroid should not affect the baby .You can plan to have another baby .Good luck .Talk to your doctor .
