I’m very bummed that I have gestational diabetes. After my second glucose test at 29 weeks I was 3 points above the normal range. Between sticking to a diet plan, keeping a food journal, pricking my finger 4 times a day, and twice daily insulin shots it’s a lot of work. I also don’t like to force myself to eat. I like eating when I’m hungry rather then eating when my schedule says so.
A couple weeks ago I had my Baby Sprinkle. See more about my special day here.Where has the bump been: Monthly pictures of my baby bump at random places.
