My girlfriend is 1 month pregnant and has told me that she had missed her first period. I am worried that she may have a miscarriage because she has diabetes, a thyroid problem, and smokes occasionally. She takes her medicine as needed but im not sure if this is enough. Please help answer if you can.

Has she confirmed her pregnancy? If so it will be very important for her to she a Dr. Her diabetes and thyrhoid should be evaluated often throughout her pregnancy. Diabetes can become more out of control during pregancy so women are watched closely. Sounds like you and your friend are young? If so then encourage her to talk to an adult who can help. She cannot hide this pregnancy not only is that bad for baby but could be life threatening for her to not have her diabetes treated. Many women with these conditions, have healthy pregnancies. This doesn't mean she will miscarry, please encourage her to see a DR.!

Forgot to say, smoking does increase your risk of miscarriage, but is more concerning that the baby will be born early or have a low birth weight, due to the smoking. Hopefully morning sickness will hit and help her to quit, many women will be to sick to smoke, best thing for her to do is to completely stop smoking.

your friend needs to see a doc asap. i am type 2 diabetic insulin controlled and i am 24 weeks now. if she gets the medical help and listens to what the doc says word for word, there is a great chance of her having this child. it will be a hard road for her but if she really wants it, its worth it.
