So I guess people like to move fast with this GD (gestational diabetes) shit! I have already spoke with the nurse at the specialist's office and as long as the insurance goes through I should receive my testing kit pretty fast, then a nurse will come to my house and I will have a 2 hour lesson on how to check my blood sugar, what to eat, etc. I will then have to call in my daily results, sounds like a blast right? The program lasts 21 days (just like rehab! I feel like such a celeb) and if I have everything under control at the end of the 21 days, I am discharged from the program. I wonder if they will sing to me when I am done like in the movie? Maybe they will ask me to be in the next diabetes commercial with BB King. See? I am trying to be funny. Trying to cheer myself up.
The nurse on the phone made me feel so good. After she asked me all the "Do you have high blood pressure? Heart issues? Placenta problems? Obesity? etc etc..." she said, "This really came out of left field for you, huh? You are the right weight, super healthy, no issues."
Can I carry her in my pocket from now on? For all the times I am sure people will think that I made this happen, that I did something wrong, that I must be overweight?
I also went home for lunch and cried in Paul's arms for a while. I do have the best husband ever. When I shared my frustration that this is not fair, I eat healthy, I take good care of myself, I know plenty of pregnant women who take horrible care of themselves and never get GD, people are going to think I am a horrible person...do you know what he said? "Who gives a shit what other people think?" And he's right. This is not my fault. This is not my fault.
