i found out that i have a small case of Gestational Diabetes...i had to go in and take a second test which lasted 3 hours and consisted of me having my blood drawn 4 times. i failed the last 2 blood draws. not by much the third was just barley over and the 4th was borderline. they say either way i have it and i need to follow the diet plan i was givin. not because im overweight now but because of the diabetes. they say this also explains why i have been gaining weight like i have. which is rapidly. i knew something was wrong i was just hoping that it was all me. im following the diet plan. thats all i can do really, and i have to have my finger pricked once a week in the docs office to make sure that my blood sugar is regular. it sucks too because i have to go in at 8 am and i live in a very small town about an hour away from my doctor. i got really upset today too because my step mom decided it was funny to say that i was trying to kill my child by having diabetes. it made me feel like total crap even tho i know better. i know she didnt mean anything by it but i really wish she would choose her words more wisely especially while im in the condition im in. i spent the other morning crying my eyes out when i found out. even tho i know its not that big a deal i know there are some serious risks to the baby involved and for some reason my body doesnt take pregnancey very lightly at all. i just ask that anyone who reads this keeps the baby in their thoughts.

Aww! I am so sorry to hear about your situation! I will be praying for you and your baby! I wish you the best, and even though this is a sucky situation you should be proud of yourself for following the diet plan and doing everything you need to do to take care of yourself and your baby, GO YOU!


P.S. I'm sorry about what your stepmother said... that was pretty cruel whether she meant it or not....

thanks very much! yea she doesnt really think about anyones feelings when she opens her mouth and she loves me and my kids dearly but she has said a few things repeatedly about me and my pregnancey that have hurt my feelings and i just have to walk away from her. sometimes i can blame it all on my moodiness but most of the time others find it quit rude to spout off and they agree you shouldnt talk that way to a pregnant person because they most definatley will take it wrong.
