Hi everyone. I havent been on here in a long time but I guess now I have a reason to be again.
Im 5 months pregnant. As soon as I found out my dad got my prenatals and I went to the doctors and I was doing what I was suppose to do but a couple weeks ago they said my blood sugars were a little high, made me drink some gunk and did another test and told me I had gestational diabetes.
There's no reason for me to have this. Ive done everything right, I eat healthy and I'm not overweight. I don't understand it. I'm young but my doctor said that its usually older woman that get it. Diabetes has been in the family but not gestational.
I have appointments like every week it seems like and I have work and school. I don't understand this diabetes stuff because it seems different than the kind that Kylie had. I don't want to have to take medicines or get too sick with it so I'm excercising at night when I can but I'm barely eating and I go to bed hungry like almost every night. My blood sugars only dropped 2 times but thats better than going high.
I have high blood pressure and my doctor told me that can cause problems with the kidneys and for my baby.
I had to get off my anti-depressants that worked so great for me. I'm doing better than I was last month but its hard and it sucks. It's my fault, I get it, I did this to myself. Im so scared that Im going fail her too.
I'm so afraid Im going to screw up and lose my baby.
Help me, please?
