Well, I have been trying really hard this pregnancy to keep my blood sugar in line so I wouldn't be gestationally diabetic. I failed that mission. I am now 29 weeks pregnant and have gestational diabetes. I am really sad that I couldn't do it on my own. I now need to see a diatician and will hopefully learn some much needed info so I can keep on track. I am excited to eat healthier as a family and hopefully this will be just the kick in the pants I need. I really don't want to have to pass this on to baby Joshua and cause him anguish over his blood sugar later on in life.
Like I said, I am 29 weeks along today. I am measuring quite a bit bigger than that though. I am measuring 33 weeks, 4 weeks ahead. I am hoping to slow this down a bit with the new diet. My OB-GYN says he may induce me a couple weeks early if neccesary. He doesn't want Joshua getting over 8 and a half pounds. I am great with an early delivery! I just want this baby healthy. Please pray that I can get control of this sugar stuff and really eat healthy, not only for me, but for him.
