I know I have been a little MIA this week on the blog. For starters my computer decided to poop out on me and you cant really blog without a computer and secondly I received some not so good news on Monday.
My Dr. who helps manage my diabetes called to tell me my recent blood tests came back and the results indicated that my diabetes management is not where it should be in order to have a healthy pregnancy.
I panicked and had a mini melt down.
What if something happens to my baby? I would feel like it would be completely my fault.
As a type 1 diabetic (different from type 2) pregnancy is considered very high risk. Your risk of miscarriage is increased as well as your baby developing abnormalities if your blood sugars are not under tight control.
I prayed and realized I have to have faith in God. He is the only one that can predict the outcome of a situation.
Pregnancy is a blessing and I truly believe God only gives you what you can handle. I know I can handle this.
Yes I would love to eat a nice toasted bagel for breakfast...with a side of Taco Bell but that is just not possible. Its time for me to go into military mode as far as my diet goes. Its low carb smoothies for breakfast if it sounds good or not.
The reality is I only have one shot at determining the outcome of our future baby.
There is no try only DO...My husband Ian always tells me that. It's a quote from Star Wars apparently.
On a side note: It is NOVEMBER! My two favorite holidays are approaching and I could not be more excited about that.
