So according to the nurse at the diabetes clinic - my sugar levels on the test that I took at the baby nurse mean that I do have the gestational diabetes..
I got this blood sugar meter thingi and I have to keep track of my blood sugar 7 times every other day. I have to do it once I get up before I eat or drink anything. And once before bed. Other than that before each main meal (breakfast, lunch, dinner) and once within an hour of started main meal.. The fasted numbers count for the pre breakfast dose..
I have been doing it since yesterday and my levels are REALLY good.. I am well under the limits and this is really confusing me..
How can they say I have the gestational diabetes - if none of my blood levels agree with it??
Anyway.. I have to do this until a few days after the baby is born.. And if the numbers stay this way (which they should with me keeping my diet and moving unless I am really unlucky) I will not need any insulin treatment.
I guess it's not all bad though .. The fact that this diet will make me more used to eating normal and healthy and by the time the baby is born - and that will the weight-loss after this whole thing is over much easier.. Wont it ??
Anyhoo.. Gotta get off.. This house is a mess and starting to get on my nerves...
Wishing you all a great weekend <3
