I have to give you, my readers an apology. The past few weeks have been rough here due to personal issues. Normally a blogger would post ahead, but I was unable to. I wrote a few posts back concerning depression and I have to admit, I know first hand about the problems even a mild case of depression can cause your life.
In what I think was my first or second post here, I spoke about how a mistaken diagnosis plunged me and my family into a whirlwind of depression and obsession over diabetes. A little over a year and a half ago, one of my trips to the OB/GYN ended up with a diagnosis of Gestational Diabetes. After a day of blood draws the diagnosis was found to be incorrect but it left me with an almost insane fear of this condition striking here at home.
Recently, I found out I am expecting again. My heart began to pound because I am falling back into that mindset. The old fear, the reading of every label, the constant gnawing in my stomach. Will this time be different? If I consume just the wrong amount of sugar, will I be forcing myself into Diabetes? Blaming myself before there is even a reason to find fault at all.
In an effort to help myself deal with these issues, I plan to find and offer information on pregnancy and diabetes. Great tasting recipes, exercise, and resources to help you deal with your diabetes and pregnancy if you happen to be one of the many women who have or are at risk for gestational diabetes. All of the information will be helpful for mothers to be who are diabetic before conceiving as well.
