Gestational Diabetes and me

I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes (GD) at 28 weeks. It has been almost 8 weeks since then. When I first found out I was a little upset as I thought I did something wrong but turns out there was not really much I could do about it as my hormones are pretty much out of whack!

I started getting on the GD board on babycenter to see what others were saying. Bad idea! All those ladies do is complain about GD and how annoyed they are about it and how depressed the diagnosis was. Ok come on it is not bad, or I am just an optimist :-)

Yes, I have to watch what I eat. Yes,I have to prick my fingers 4 times a day. Yes,I have to give myself insulin at night. No,it isn't the end of the world. Can I give into my cravings no, but that's not a bad thing. This has made me more consciences of what I am eating so truthfully it has helped me.

It's hard to read what some of these women are saying without responding to tell them to get over it. I am trying to refrain myself from going off but some of them need to realize that having GD is nothing to complain about. It can be a pain yes, but in the long run its a tiny piece of the pie.

I love Hunter and would put up with anything to have him. He is our little blessing no matter what! Oh it's helped me not gain too much more weight :-)

GD tests are always very time consuming but for the safer future it is very beneficial.
