From the USA:

I am two months pregnant. Recently my doctor found out that I have diabetes, now treated daily with insulin injections, and now my sugar is under control. Is there any chance that my baby will have any birth defects?


Your baby is at risk for abnormalities. However, most of these can be ruled out with ultrasound. At two months it is too early to see the fetus in great detail. Usually the first ultrasound is done around 16-18 weeks.
