All right, so I met with the GD nurse and have all that I need to figure out this GD. So I have to take my blood sugar levels five times a day — not so fun. I HATE needles. BUT, I’m doing okay with this. It isn’t really bad at all. My levels have all been within the range that they need to be except for my fasting ones (the one first thing in the morning, and I’m not sure why they are higher). The diet thing is fine. The only real change is that I have been forcing myself to eat at regular intervals. As far as what I have been eating, I have just cut out sweets for the most part. I still cheat a bit and my levels have been fine. The nurse explained how I should be able to do that and it seems to be working. I just have to have one less serving of carbs at dinner or whatever if I want to have a small dessert. It is working right now. I also have to go in for regular non-stress tests every week. I’m not sure exactly how that is going to go, or what it is really, but it will be fine. I know they hook up monitors and stuff, but that’s all I know. I need to get a babysitter on those days or there is no way my stress tests will go well 🙂
Also, because Harrison was a C-section, this one will be too now. I meet with the drs next week to confirm everything, but looks like I’m having another C-section. I was really hoping for a VBAC, but moreso hoping for a healthy baby 🙂 The nurse said that at 36 weeks they will do an ultrasound and if the baby is over 8 lbs they will schedule the C-section.
Looking for a new apartment/house. We need something bigger and we started looking again online last night and there are LOTS of bigger and nicer places for less or what we are paying, so looks like there will be a move and a new baby within a couple of weeks of each other — hopefully the move comes first!
