good news?

I called my nurse at Dr A's office. She said that everything I've been dealing with sounds like fluctuations in blood sugar levels, and I shouldn't worry too much. I need to keep track of what I eat, make sure I always have milk and juice in the house, and if I start to feel odd or shaky, eat a little something. She also said that some of it may be hormolan, the pregnancy hormones seem to affect women more if their current pregnancy started less than a year after their last pregnancy ended. Since Littleman just recently turned 1, and I am roughly 3 and 1/2 months pregnant, I am in that group.

The only thing that worries me about fluctuating blood sugar, is that I am in a very, very high risk group for type 2 adult onset diabetes, and for gestational diabetes. I really have to take care of myself, and sometimes, in taking care of everyone else, I forget that.

I am just fine, I am not losing it...yet
