[IP] RE: why do you have children?

My husband and I have explored this topic thoroughly with my specialist and
in our discussions, in order for us to have children, we could do it while
continuing on daily injections, but for any even better chance with no
complications, it was thought best for me to go on the pump.

With that in mind, this decision was also reached by the fact that I am the
only one in my family who has type 1 diabetes and my specialist stated that
with good care, my children would only have a 3% chance of having
diabetes -- with those kind of odds, we both felt it was worth trying to
have a family!
