Guess who just got diagnosed with gestational diabetes? That's right, me. I just barely failed the tests, but I still failed. I get to do the whole diabetic education stuff and LEARN ME how to take my blood sugar, lol. Like I've never done this before being a nurse and all! Oh well. It sounds like I will be able to control the diabetes with a change in my diet. This means minimal carbs and simple sugars. Goodbye pastas and lots of breads :o(.
Women with multiples is 2-3 times more likely to develop GD. Ugh! Just one more thing to add to the list of how hard it is to have twins. Women who go through IVF also tend to have more problems. And maybe being 4 ft 11 inches adds to the stress.
Maybe I've said this before but I loved being pregnant with Ethan. This pregnancy, not so much and I can't wait until these babies arrive (of course when they are full term). The only thing I really enjoy is feeling those babies move!
Until next time...
