i'm so upset. i didn't see it coming. i figured it would be fine. i'm overweight and have horrible eating habits, so i guess i should have seen it coming. my gynecoloigst said if i don't take action now, it could be come full blown diabetes after the baby is born. ugh i have to research this but i'm scared of what i might read. is anyone here dealing with gestational diabetes? please someone tell me it's not so bad. i was told it can cause a higher birthweight baby and i could potentially hand off diabetic tendencies to the baby. i don't see a dietician until december 31st, so until then i guess i have to figure it out for myself. i know this may sound selfish but it's going to be hard to get through christmas with no sugar. and i love sprite, i miss it a lot! i can't do diet sprite because of aspartame, so i'm really just left with water. grrr...i'm so mad at me for being over indulgent.
