Gestational Diabetes

Okay, so this won't be your typical "photography" blog but, since I've never had a typical blog, I thought you wouldn't mind. I didn't have any issues with my first pregnancy and so far this one has been really easy. Two weeks ago I failed me glucose test and then last Friday failed my second test...bummer, eh? I haven't been able to talk to my doctor or anyone who can give me clear direction for my next steps and I don't want to go on the internet to read about everything that could go wrong so, I'm relying on close friends to surf for me and one even printed out a list of things I can eat! I should know more about the contents/nutrients of food but I don't. It's weird to be thinking before every bite now...I don't like it.

I want to know everything, have it memorized, have lists as reminders and move forward in the pregnancy. Hopefully by the end of the week I'll have more clarity.

My biggest concern is the baby's health. In the past I've put weird stuff on my blog and received tons of helpful information so I thought I'd lay it out there one more time! I'll be 28 weeks on Thursday so I still have 12 weeks to go. Do you have any advice me?

I know everything is going to be fine but, as a woman I need to talk it through.
