27 weeks and counting
Welp, today is my first day ever of taking meds for my diabetes. I’m nervous as hell about it.
So, when I had gestational diabetes for my first child, I only had to walk 15 minutes after meals to ensure good blood glucose levels. This time around, the same worked…until about four weeks ago.
Once I got past a certain point in my pregnancy, my levels just started rising and there was nothing that I could physically do (diet/exercise) to keep them down. The doctor’s say that’s pretty normal and usually happens right before the third trimester, when your hormones begin to change.
This time around I’m “pre-diabetic” and I think that has presented some extra challenges in maintaining my levels on my own while pregnant.
Anyway, wish me luck! I’m super nervous!
