Gestational Diabetes

Perspective

The day before our wedding I found out I had gestational diabetes.

I was devastated. I’d been eating so healthy and doing fitness, how could this be.

Two weeks after our wedding I found out I was required to take insulin daily.

This was such an added challenge to pregnancy. I had to watch everything I ate. No sugar and even what meals I did eat had to be in small portions to ensure I had control over my blood sugar levels.  I honestly felt like I had no energy to grow this precious little baby.

I now sit here with this gorgeous bundle sprawled across my chest. She’s here. She’s healthy.  I made it. I’m just a little proud.
