Pregnancy Update

Everyone has been so sweet asking me about my gestational diabetes. Here's the latest... I was finally able to get in to see the endocrinologist on Wednesday, and things have really been going well ever since. He was wonderful and probably spent 45 minutes with Matt and me going over all concerns. Basically he told us that the insulin shots I have been taking were doing me no good, and that for my case, I needed a specialized plan. To make a long story short, I am now taking five shots a day... one in the morning and one before bed and one before every meal. It sounds bad, but it's really not. I give them to myself... Matt is now banned from all shot-giving.

The specialist told us that he should have my sugars regulated within the week, and as soon as that happens, Jeb's pancreas will go back to normal which means a healthy baby. If we would have continued with the high sugars, there was a very good chance that he could have been born hypoglycemic and would have arrived as a sick little boy. AND all this is supposed to go away as soon as I deliver.

Jeb is due February 25, but I will be induced at least a week early. And I have to say, this baby can't get here soon enough. We are working on the little guy's nursery, and I will post pictures when we finish!
