Most people know already, but Wednesday I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes. I took my glucose test last week and failed it so Wednesday morning I went to the lab to do the more extensive 3 hour glucose test. I drank the extra sugary drink and about 30 minutes later threw it up in the lobby in front of the lab-good times!
So my doctor decided that I have GD and sent me to a dietitian. I went yesterday and got a meter and have to test my blood 4 times a day and I got a diet plan. I am pretty confused about the diet part! I have to balance my carbs and proteins so meal and snack planning is going to take ALOT of work.
I am probably just being a wimp or baby about this, but I'm not happy that I'm dealing with this. It has been emotionally hard for me and is going to take getting used to. I understand that it will most likely go away when Conner is born so I only have about 10 weeks of doing this, but it still sucks. I just have to keep reminding myself that this is not about me, this is for my child!
