If anyone out there has, had, or dealt with gestational diabetes during a pregnancy, I would appreciate it so very much if you would either leave me a comment, or email me.

I found out yesterday that my blood test did not come back very friendly-like.

So I get to either go and take another blood test (which I did last week, and, literally, came thisclose to fainting in the doctor's office because of the glucose solution), or I could just go ahead and start the gestational diabetes diet, and monitor my blood.


Is my excitement coming through clearly enough?

So in my search on the internet (which was a REALLY bad idea; just like everyone always says not to research health issues on the internet, but why would I listen to them?) I didn't really find any more information on the subject, but did come across the following cool test.

Which, of course, I took.

Because I am a nerd.

A librarian nerd.

But just LOOK!!!

If the woman who taught keyboarding to me in high school could see that, I think she would be pleased with herself.

Beth, me are so sweet to say that! I really try to have an interesting blog & lots of people come by, so I guess it's working. You made my day by saying all that about the magazines & pics. I love your Southern-ness too...too cute! And congrats on the new baby.
