Little Glich

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.

Oh Amanda, I'm sorry. :( Definite prayers! At least you're in good hands, and I know so many women go through this and come out just fine. You will be in that category. :)
What is involved in the dietary changes?
