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!

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)




What Is It?


I’m 17 weeks and counting. Yesterday, I saw my OB/GYN who said to keep up the good work. Today, I saw both the Certified Diabetes Educator and the maternal/fetal specialist. We ordered a new A1c but won’t know for a few days what the result will be. I’m estimating about the same- 5.9% to maybe 6. (READ MORE)
