I got a call today from my OB... they told me that I am one of the small percentage of women that has gestational diabetes. I'm more than a little worried. My little girl is at significant risk now and there isn't much I can do about it. She'll be here in 9 weeks and 3 days and I just keep praying that there won't be anything too severe or challenging for her. I have had such an easy pregnancy that I never saw this coming and I just keep thinking about what this will do to her. I don't want her to be a diabetic... that's such a miserable situation. I'm not afraid of needles or worried about myself, I'm worried about Lucy. I know God is in control and I wish I could be more comforted by that fact but I think I'm still in shock and honestly a little horrified that there's nothing I could have done anyway. Keep us in your prayers. I just want her to be born with no complications and to lead a normal, healthy life.
