Thursday, February 4


Well, I just found out the gestational diabetes test came back positive. What does that mean now? Well, that is a good question. I really don't know. The nurse is referring me to a dietitian at AF hospital. She will help me try to control it using diet and excercise (I don't need insulin which is a blessing!!) I am just waiting for her to call me. In the mean time I am not sure what, when, and how to eat. Just staying away from the chocolate and carbs. Why is it that is what I crave? I will then talk to my doctor at my 28 week appointment and explain my absolute fear of having a 10 lb plus baby. In the mean time I wait to get instructions. If you know me when there is a problem I like information and solutions immediately, so waiting will be joyous!!! I am hoping she calls tomorrow.
Let's just hope this is my weird health issue this pregnancy. I have had them with each child. Ryan and Ashlyn were both induced at 37 weeks due toxemia. Makayla was a week early, induced just because, and she was my 9lb baby. Rebecca was born at 38 weeks due to a kidney infection and an abnormally large kidney stone. Therefore, I don't think any of us are shocked by this new development. I can't have a text book pregnancy. Oh, well. This is my last one and I will learn fabulous eating habits that I can use to help lose all this weight I have gained and will gain!!!

Aw man! I'm sorry it came back positive. :( Good luck making the changes in your diet.

Seriously?? When you posted last, I started to think of your other pregnancy and complications. Hopefully this is the only one!
Good luck!

That is a bummer....I had that with sara. You will most likely have to keep track of your blood sugar by pricking your finger multiple times a day, so that was a pain, but other that that, I learned some good info. about eating healthy....So sorry!

I'll be keeping you in my prayers. I'm sure it will all work out. My mom was diagnosed with that while pregnant with me and now she watches what she eats and keeps track of her blood sugar.
Love ya!
