Yes you can: Any pregnant woman can have normal healthy baby keep your diabetes under control and follow your OB/GYN s advice.

Sometimes...but: Diabetes is a challenge any day but during a pregnancy it can be difficult for both mom & baby. If she stays in good control the baby can be healthy. If her blood sugars run too high the baby's organs overgrow and store the excess and baby is at risk of birth defects.
