A Little Paranoid

Both babies have been very active today, so that's a good thing. I thought I would start with good news.

I appreciate all the stories of perfectly healthy babies born to GD (gestational diabetes) people. I figured that was probably the case, they just seriously freaked me out with all the doom and gloom talk. So I feel a little better. I was reading on another board about someone who just had their twins early and in one of the responses someone said they had their singleton at 36 weeks and she spent some time in the NICU because her longs weren't fully developed from the mom having GD.

Sigh . . . .

So now I'm just a little paranoid. If you didn't know that this week is seriously important, it is Dr. Seuss' birthday. Hubby took me to Target last night so we could buy the rest of the stuff off of our registry. Nothing cheers me up like buying baby things! Doing that before bed and getting a good morning blood reading even before I've started meds put me in a better, less devastated mood. I very nearly ate a cupcake today in honor of Dr. Seuss' birthday.

Until I remembered. Eating that cupcake could cause my babies to have blood sugar issues after birth. Eating that cupcake could cause my babies to be in the NICU because their lungs couldn't develop. Eating one chocolate cupcake with sprinkles could do irreparable damage.

I didn't eat it. I took my blood sugar just like I'm supposed to even though it is seriously costly and I've never received a bad result. I dropped off my prescription at Walmart and will start taking those meds tonight. I am so paranoid that I will do something wrong now and regret it and blame myself forever.

I really hope that Ever gains weight this week. She's probably just like mama and not really into our new low carb diet! :)


  1. Glad to hear the babies are active!

    Don't read too much - you will just scare yourself. Oh, read my responses, of course. LOL Just take it one cupcake at a time. You can do it! It isn't long now. However, I found that if I cheated, (because I needed Lucky Charms) I could cheat in the early afternoon and not throw my after dinner score off.

    You could have had green eggs and ham!

    Oh - and the GD goes away immediately at birth. They will let you eat whatever you want in the hospital!

  2. You're almost there and you're doing great! Hang in there! You're going to have perfect, beautiful babies!
