On Monday I got that call that my test came back positive for Gestational Diabetes.
On Wednesday I was in a half-day class learning about Diabetes and how to eat to control my blood sugar and help the baby too.
I want to stress that baby and I are doing FINE, but I do have to check my Blood Sugar 4 times a day and test for Ketones in the morning.
When I think about the baby, it makes all this okay.
My co-workers laughed and said that my pregnancy is doing a great job of preparing me for motherhood. Just one thing after another and making my life a hassle already. ;)
It's 96 days before my due date. I am so excited. In less than 100 days I will be a mom, I will have a baby and know if it is a boy or a girl!
We want the gender to be a surprise.
We have the names picked in no particular order:
For a Girl we like: Alexandria Ruth
For a Boy we like: Roger Joseph
Both names have lots of family significance.
