Holly, a Type I diabetic who blogs over at Arnold & Me, wrote the following about a month ago, regarding her pregnancy. It's well worth a read. She talks about being labeled as a diabetic, and consequently having her birth story written for her, before she'd even gone into labor.
A different way of getting at the same thing I talk about here all the time.
Holly gave birth to her baby a few days ago, and you should also check her blog obsessively for more information about that story (I have no idea whether she will be inclined to share it, but I plan to be the first to read it if she does. :)
