203 days pregnant

Thursday I was 203 days pregnant (29 weeks)!
Getting closer to meeting our angel every day =)
I found out this week I have gestational diabetes.
For those of you who don't know what that is;
gestational diabetes is high blood sugar (diabetes) that starts or
is first diagnosed durning pregnancy.
I had my glucose screening last week, and my number was
double what it should be...so I skipped the 4 hr test and
went straight to seeing an endocrine specialist.
We are seeing how my numbers look this week, and if
they don't lower I will need insulin.
I test my blood sugar 4x's/day. Took me a little bit to
get used to...but I'll do anything for my baby girl!
Here are a few pictures we captured in 3D of Miss Stella

Deanna filled me in on all the details via Cheryl. I'm thinking about you and Ms. Stella. Hope everything goes well and that you can figure out what you can and cannot do. Must be hard to be in your shoes right now. But, way to be optimistic!!!
