I'm all educated

...in the finer points of gestational diabetes and glucose monitoring. The nurse today was not very confident that I would be able to control my blood sugar with diet, but I am thoroughly convinced I can prove her wrong. Guess we'll see how it goes over the next couple of days.

On the health front, we are dealing with new insurance and the prescription plan appears to be even worse than the last one. Sometimes I just want to curl up into a little ball and just cry about it - why does it all have to be so complicated, anyway?

Aaron left to go pheasant hunting so Bryn and I are going to have a girl's weekend. We don't have any plans yet (except going to the grocery store), but I am sure we'll find something to do!

You go, girl. Prove the nurse wrong!
And enjoy your girl's weekend with Bryn. Sounds nice. *grin*

That's a girl! If anyone could do something through sheer strength of will, it's you! Who exactly was it you saw? With Annie it was a nurse in my doctor's office. But with Max, I was sent to a specialist at the perinatologist's office. And let me tell you...what a world of difference. I think that woman would have done about anything to a woman from having to take insulin...she was strict, and a wonder at tweaking, and kept an eagle eye on every little thing. Good luck, sweetie! ('Cause a little luck never hurt anything!)

I'm sorry about your insurance woes! What a horrible time to have to be dealing with changes like that. I hope you get it all straightened out more sooner than later. That kind of stress won't help anything.

You can do it! My long-ago-ex-boyfriend's sister managed gestational diabetes in not one but two pregnancies (and the second was for twins) by diet alone. She said not sticking herself with a needle was worth the discipline. LOL!
