Lindsey Guerin

Lindsey was diagnosed with Type 1 when she was 4 years old. She is now 27 working as the Vice President in a non-profit. She has not let Type 1 stop her in pursuing an undergraduate and graduate degree, getting married, and traveling the world.

Her diabetes "weapons of choice" are: the Dexcom G5 and the t:slim insulin pump. She married her best friend and biggest supporter last year. After a year of fighting for an A1c under 7%, they are expecting their first child in September.

In 2007, Lindsey received a diagnosis of PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) and endometriosis. They have made managing diabetes even harder and now add an extra level of chaos to making a baby.

Lindsey is a typical, yet unique, Texas woman who loves shopping, movies and reading. She loves to travel and find new adventures. She dreams of diabetes cures, babies, never-ending cheesecake, and her own airplane. The rest you can discover in her blog!

We’re at twenty-eight, almost twenty-nine weeks now. Life has been moving at rocket speed lately and I can’t seem to catch my breath (literally and figuratively these days). I just had my twenty-eight week appointment with my OB/GYN and I am fighting back the feeling of failure.


Almost Mother

Over the weekend, Ross and I celebrated Mother’s Day with both of our mothers, grandmothers, and immediate family. It was a busy, jam-packed weekend but fun to experience from “this” side of the baby. On two different occasions, family members said to me that I was an “almost” mother. And it real (READ MORE)

20 Weeks and Counting

Today marks twenty weeks- the halfway point to “full term” for baby. Each week that goes by, I can’t believe it more and more that we are doing well and, so far, everything is on track. It feels like a miracle each and every day to be blessed with this growing child (and a growing belly). And eac (READ MORE)
