Re: [IP] Female stuff...

My advice would be to weigh the pros and cons at the time.
At the time I wanted to have a baby, the cons won.
Your own health must be first and if your health can support a pregnancy--go
for it.  Talk to alot of doctors and nurses both Endo and OB before making
your decision one way or the other.
Yes-- all diabetic pregnancy's are high risk
