Don't be jealous.

For all of you that have been pregnant and didn't have gestational diabetes - I feel sorry for you.

I get one of these and you don't:



And I get to do this all day:



It's super fun.

Sara said...

I am so sorry. Too miserable! Is it any comfort that you looked fabulous at church yesterday? :)

I had it with Hunter and was teaching jr high. My students loved to watch me and guess how high my sugar levels were. It was a pain in the neck! I didn't have it with Kenli, interesting???

Susan said...

No fun! I had it with my pregnancy with Emma. I had to prick like 4 times a day - bleh! But I felt cool. ;)

Jenny or sometimes Bozo said...

I'm sorry. If I had to do that I would probably pass out each time and they would make me stop :)

i have never had that with any of my pregnancies yet, (crossing my fingers). how do you get that? does the dr just tell you at one of your appts? i know that probably sounds dumb but i really don't know.? the needle you have, does it hurt? i have done it before because i am hypoglycemic so when i get really low on my sugar then i have to do this...but the needle i have is small that i don't feel anything. i am sorry! i hope you never have it again!p.s. how often do you have to do it?

If I was any more jealous of you I would probably be sick! What a lucky woman you are! No, seriously I am so sorry that you are having to deal with all of that. I am feeling like such a blessed girl to have a healthy pregnancy when my two very good friends are going through struggles. You are quite the woman though and you are handeling it quite well if I may say so. I miss you! We need to chat again soon!

Oh Britt, SO sorry! Just another reason to love pregnancy. Good thing it's only for a few, no a COUPLE more months. Do you have a name for the little dude yet? Love and miss you!

Poor Brittanie! You're almost done! :)

I'm so jealous!

That's one side effect I've managed to avoid. It seems like every time I check a pregnant friend's blog I can totally relate to what they're going through, but this time you're on your own. The one hour glucose test is enough for me so I really feel for you going back for the three hour test and then getting to prick a million times a day. Kids are fun!

Oh Brit. So sorry. I have two diabetic siblings, so know all about how stressful that can be.

Oh! Hang in there. Almost done right? And, it is all worth it! Loved the hair pictures. I am just hoping for my daughter to have hair someday!
