gestational diabetes and going on pills...

 I have gestational diabetes. I showed my log today and  the Diabetic nutritionist told me she will be speaking with my ob about pills. This sucks. I have been doing better really. I do have high numbers but I have also had numbers as low as 116! I don't pig out on carbs. I don't eat sweets. I guess this kind of thing just happens.

Sorry mama

 Thank you. It sucks! I won't lie. I am afraid of needing shots.

Welcome to the club sweetie, it sucks! I know we've both been battling with this.

I'm confused and frustrated too. Honestly, I haven't taken my pills in two days because I cannot function with them, the side effects are too much. I decided to go on maternity leave early because of all this *sighs*

Good luck to us both.

That stinks :( I needed shots, but it wasn't NEARLY as bad as I thought, and don't forget...it's best for baby AND it's only temporary :) good luck!

 Thank you hun.

It does suck. What I hate is how I am told not to reduce my carbs(by their standard that is). I am told I need them and yet carbs are my enemy. It sucks!

I am afraid of those pills . The dietician was trying to assure me that the pills will be fine and I won't get lows. I am so anxious. I want this to all be over with and just have my baby in my arms. I thought I was doing good enough. I guess not:(

That sucks. You have been dealing with this longer and I bet you really are fed up. *HUGS* . iT REALLY is effecting your life! I am so sorry. It will be over and you will have a baby in your arms.

As for me, I may be done after this one.

Good luck and hugs

 That is the only thing that makes all of that worth it, my baby.

Did you have to go through that oh so wonderful 3 hr GTTest? I had to do that when I was pregnant and it was awful.
