At this point in time we don't do pancreas transplants for type 1 diabetes unless they have end stage renal failure - if you do a transplant you have to go on medication life long to prevent your body from rejecting the donor organ and the risks and side effects of the medication and the cost would be worse than just taking insulin!
Pregancy causes a relative insulin resistancy. Try to eat low GI foods and to eat regular small meals. It is best to be with a gynecologist that has experience with treatment of diabetic pregnancies. It may also be a good idea to see a dietician as you may need to change the way you eat during the pregancy.
