Should I be worried...30 weeks pregnant

Well I posted a few weeks ago about my spotted vision and I figured it wasnt anything big.

  • with shelly there, it is a sign of toxemia, but its also a sign of extremely high blood sugar... i would definitely call the doctors office tomorrow... i had gestational diabetes with the last one, and it was rough. get checked out, don't chance it.

    this is coming from someone who it just about anti everything, and doesn't believe in anything but NCB. so take perspective.
