Gestational Diabetes

Filed under: family,old post from blogger — Tags: — Crystal @ 4:29 pm

So I was diagnosed with Gestational Diabetes for this pregnancy. Celeste showed some signs at birth that I may have had it with her (jaundice, high birth weight) but was never diagnosed with it. I’m so frustrated at this whole numbers thing. I’m on day 3.5 of checking my numbers and I’ve only hit my target numbers 3 times. On average I’m under 105 in the morning but above 90 and after my meals im generally 120-145. So I’m failing everything. I’m supposed to be under 90 for fasting morning and under 120 1 hour after meals. I’m really discouraged and feel like what the heck is the point of even trying to eat better! I’ve followed doctors, and dietitians orders down to the smallest oz. Between that and and the overwhelming fear I’ve had of having a c-section I’m just an emotional wreck crying and angry all the time. Thank god I have such a great husband who is supportive. I don’t know how I’d put up with myself. Not to mention I’m sick right now as is my daughter too. I just wanna crawl in bed, hide under the covers and sleep.

*update* a couple of weeks later my numbers thing all straightened out and came down to normal. They almost went down to low!
