I would talk to your doctor and see what he thinks. There is no reason that you cannot try

You can try now if you have the insulin pump. Good luck!!'

You have to keep your sugars below 140 or else your baby will start making insulin for you. And try getting your a1c down to a 6 or lower. :) Also keep your blood sugars in the 60-90 range always.

I'm in the same situation. I have gone on a pump which has helped as well as getting my hba1c don from 10 to 6.7!
