On the Horizon

Having type 1 diabetes takes a lot of planning. As a fairly organized person, I take pride in keeping it together. One thing that must be planned is type 1 and pregnancy. After countless hours of thought, I am ready to take the plunge. There is something about motivation when it doesn't just affect you. Here's hoping.
