How likely is it to have a type 1 kid? I want to have kids but I feel like they are doomed to have type 1 like me. Do you have kids? Do any have T1 too?

I monitored my glucose levels during pregnancy very close. I have no idea what my A1C was 24 years ago, but due to the diabetes my baby weighed 9.4 oz.

It is more likely to have a child that is T1 if the father is diabetic.
