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.
