Hi, I'm no expert when it comes to all this because I am only 14. So please don't take this as a 'professional answer'. But as you know, diabetes is caused by a low insulin level in the arteries, I'm not exactly sure that it will effect your child. But just in case there's a chance it will in the future, then you need to watch over your condition.

Yes its a condition to be managed if you have it, and there is also gestational diabetes, ie it can occur because of the pregnancy. Its routinely dealt with by doctors and hospitals, express your concerns and be managed. nothing horrid can happen but you don't want a baby possibly predisposed to it either, if poss.
We found pregnaNcy happened after discovering and resolving two allergies that were causing "bloated" and painful tummy issues. If you have a bit of weight, losing a few pounds and more walking is known to help
I have never heard of diabetes having an effect on fertility, if that's what you're asking, but it can complicate the pregnancy once you are expecting. Be sure to be under a doctor's care as soon as you may know you are pregnant, or before then if possible.
