A Little Bump in the Road

10/3: Well, we almost made it 26 wks without any kind of issues but yesterday Dr. B's nurse called to inform me that I flat out failed my glucose test!! I was so disappointed! Statistically and realistically I knew there was a good chance of this but I was hoping that I would not have to deal with this issue! Dr. B wanted me to come in and start dealing with this issue immediately. We went to the clinic and picked up our prescriptions and filled them. We got testing strips, lancets and the glucose meter! Today, we had to meet with a nurse to teach us how to use everything and what to do but in reality, I didn't need a lesson. My mother is a diabetic and I have seen her test her blood sugar for the last 10 years! I have been bummed because I really watch what I eat but the nurse explained to us about the pregnancy hormones and that diet isn't always to blame. I am dealing with it better now and I know that we can deal with it and manage it!!! (We have to test my levels 4 times a day.)

Regardless of your mom's history, I know you and Rob will handle this Nellie. I know how much you and Rob want those babies and want them here healthy and you healthy. Way to go on handling all you need to so quickly. Praying all goes smoothly as you continue on. Connie VH

Hang in there Nellita! It's three whole human beings plus you and all of you are sweet as can be, of course. There's only so much glucose in one body to go around for the sweetness of y'all. So you need a little help in the meantime. It's going to be fine. You look gorgeous, love.
