Another month closer to the big day!  How are the older children reacting to the news of having a baby in the house?  Are they excited?  Any older siblings starting school this year?

Praying for the appt with the dietician to go well and not overwhelm you with too much info at one time. Dieticians are very knowledgeable and helpful folks, so if you have questions, right them down ahead of the appt to ask. (I still try to remember to do that before any dr's appt since my first OB had wanted to handle our appts that way and be super-efficient!)

PTL that this is only for a short time! Maybe the knowledge about diabetes will help in the future with a diabetic friend and give that person comfort that someone understands.

I'm so sorry you failed the test. I only passed by the skin of my teeth while pregnant with Julia. Prayers that the last weeks will go by quickly, and you are able to give yourself the medicine you need. HUGS!

I failed my 3 hour glucose test today, so I guess that means I have gestational diabetes.  I am really bummed!  I'm currently awating a call from the diabetes clinic to get an appt. with a dietician.  I don't look forward to sticking myself, tracking food, etc.  Yuckkkkkk!!!!!!:smileymad:  The good news is that I only have to deal with it for another 8 or 9 weeks, since baby brother will be here shortly.  It's going soooo fast!
