In brief: If you keep fit
It would be good for you to discuss your hopes with an OB and/or high risk OB specialist.
In pregnancy, the normal development of the fetus requires a continuous transfer of nutrients like glucose thru the placenta. The fetus generally will have a glucose level 2/3 of your level at any point in time, so your spells could cause problems for baby.Your healt team can give you specific guidence.
