28 is great: 28 is a very good age to start trying to conceive. Fertility rate begins to decrease at the age of 34 and the miscarriage rate increases after that age as well. But, today, many, many women conceive their first baby after the age of 35 and do very well with good obstetric care. Though there are risks to the mom and baby after 35, they can be evaluated and managed in most cases. Get early care!

If PCOS..: Most diabetic women can conceive just fine, unless they have pcos (polycystic ovarian syndrome) in which case metformin and weight loss can help with conception. Maintain strict control of your blood sugar for at least 3-6 months before attempting pregnancy and take Folic Acid at 1-5 mg daily throughout your reproductive life. Make sure your thyroid function is normal before getting pregnant).
