My journey with Gestational Diabetes

As most of you know, I had Gestational Diabetes while pregnant with Hudson. I tried to do some research before I went to my first Endocrinologist visit and couldn’t find anything. I am the type of person that I like to know as much as possible before going into a situation. I don’t like surprises, especially when it comes to the health of my baby.

I decided to document my journey so that I might be able to help others that are going through the same thing I went through.  This is just my personal findings, experiences and opinions.  I do not have any type of training in diabetes (other than the crash course I was given at the hospital) nor should anything read here be used in lieu of any medical advice given by your personal health care provider.

If I can handle being diagnosed with diabetes, anyone can. I was (still am to a point) scared to death of needles. Giving myself shots was one of the hardest things I ever had to do. It wasn’t fun, but eventually you get used to it. I never thought in a million years I’d be able to give myself a shot, especially 5 times a day, and prick my finger 7 times a day. One thing I learned through all of this. You can do anything when it comes to the health of your child.

If you are reading this because you just found out you have gestational diabetes, please feel free to contact me. I’d be more than happy to help you in any way that I can.
