Pregnancy is such a wonderful, joyous time.
You are growing a human being inside you, what could be more special?
Then you go to your 27 weeks appointment and they tell you that you have gestational diabetes…
For me this came at such a shock the first time. I was very small when I got pregnant, probably below 120 pounds. I wasn’t gaining excessive weight during pregnancy. I was working out almost every day (waking up at 5 am and going to the gym). I ate very healthy (whole foods primarily).
And I had gestational diabetes?!?
