I just found out I am gestational diabetic. I am only 11 weeks along so my OB as well as my endocrinologist thinks that because of my family history of diabetes, I was diabetic before I found out I was pg. Now I am on a modified diet and have to check my blood sugar 4 times a day. I am trying to keep it under control so I don't have to take insulin. For those of you that do have to take it, what is it like having to give yourself a shot. doing the quick poke of my finger to check my blood sugar is not so bad but having to stick a long needle in me kind of freaks me out!
