I would like to know more about the effects of Humalog in the first trimester of pregnancy.

I am a 20 year old girl who has had type 1 diabetes for almost 18 years, and for the most part, it has been in good control. I plan to have children in the next five years, but I recently found out that I am not ovulating every month.
