    w/ CF! - questions about CFRD and pregnancy

    I am wondering if there is anyone out there with CFRD who has given birth. I'm 18 & in college, but what I want most in of my life is a family. I've always had really good lung health (absolutely healthly enough to have a baby), but what I struggle with is the digestive part - and I have developed CFRD. Since I'm a healthy weight now and plan on maintaining it, can someone give me insight as to how all the diabetes-related aspects can affect a fetus? Can blood sugar changes harm a baby? Does pregnancy complicate the diabetes? etc. etc. Anything you have to offer -thanks!

    Hi masterykonedy, i've known a number of women with cf that have had successful pregnancies with cfrd. there is a large group of cf women on facebook that are pregnant or hope to be at some point. it's a secret group so you wont be able to find it by searching but private message me here and I'd be happy to add you to the group.
