Well, it’s official. I do have gestational diabetes. I have to say, I really thought I was going to skate through this pregnancy without any complications this time. But. But. I am not on bed rest. So, while this glitch is a bummer, there is a lot to be thankful for:

1. No bed rest.
2. I am six weeks away from my due date.
3. Everyone should eat like a diabetic anyway. So I consider this a head start to making changes in the way our family eats.
4. I am six weeks away from my due date. Wait. Did I mention that already? 🙂

We meet with the dietitian on Thursday afternoon. I have very little information at this point, but I do know that, at least for the first week, I will be checking my blood sugar four times a day. Thank goodness I let all those pediatric patients poke my fingers for all those years, so I’m used to it! There’s a reason for everything, isn’t there? 🙂
