November 23 2010

29 weeks along.

Pelvis is still killing me. Having to walk slower.

I had my appointment last Tuesday with the OB and the bad news is that I failed the diabetes screen. Then on Wednesday I was retested with a fasting diabetes test. I failed the blood test before the glucose drink, after 1 hour and after 2 hours. This means that I have gestational diabetes.

I have since found out I have alot of the risk factors: over 30, previous baby over 9 lbs, overweight, family history.

Today Paul and I went to the diabetes clinic at the hospital and they set me up with a blood glucose testing machine and some strips and some lancets. We also met with a dietician and hopefully we will be able to make some changes and get my sugar under control with diet and exercise. Exercise pelvis permitting. Makes it hard to walk when you are in pain.

Then when I got back to work I called the base pharmacy and they use a different machine and strips and lancets so they gave me a different machine to use and enough lancets and strips for awhile.

There is an 80% chance that I will not have type II diabetes after the pregnancy.

They think I had it last pregnancy towards the end of my pregnancy because Logan was 10 lbs.

It is a little depressing and very stressful at this time, trying to manage food since I still have alot of food aversions and a very sore pelvis.

On a good note we leave for Vegas on Sunday the 28th of November. We are really looking forward to some family time. The resort has lots of waterslides so I am sure Logan will be very happy! We will be home on the 5th of December.

We had snow on the weekend and it has been cold. Followed by more snow yesterday. Still cold. Too cold for me anyway. We are expecting more snow tomorrow as well.

That's all for now.

Love Rae-Lynn, Paul & Logan and baby boy Hacker.
