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.
