I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes today. Talk about a letdown. I’ve never failed the one hour screening, never mind had to do the three hour test and then to fail that. I’m so super frustrated. Feels like my body is failing me. I got a glucometer and hope to control it with diet. I have a history of large babies – which apparently contributes to my chances for diabetes anyway. I really don’t want a bigger baby still, if I can do something about it.
It was a rotten day of failed fasting numbers, miscommunication between lab, midwife, and overseeing doctor, multiple changes of plans, and finally failing everything but the final draw, which was dramatically low. Beyond that, we’re all well. Hunkered down and amazed at how the country has gone for the last several weeks and months. Blaine continues to work but has the option to work from home should the Coronavirus regulations dictate the need. Both big girls are still working, but the cafe portion of the ice cream shop/grocer/cafe has shut down. The drive through and carry out remain open with a skeleton crew. Co-op is cancelled for the next few weeks at least. Liberty’s high school graduation ceremony remains in limbo. We are stocked with tp, food, and supplies, mostly because that’s how I run things around here anyway. Praying all is well with each of you, as we weather the storm that is life lately.
