So, last Tuesday I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes. The clinic gave me a meter and set up appointments with a diabetes educator and the dietician. I net with the diabetes educator yesterday and based on my numbers over the weekend, she started me on insulin.

I had to take my first shot yesterday. Aut 3:16 has type 1 diabetes so I told him I was scared and asked him if it hurt. He was so grown up about it and told me that if I stuck it in straight it wouldn't hurt. I wanted to know if it hurt worse than picking your finger. My crazy son said that popping a pimple hurts worse! He is sooo funny. Turns out he was right, it didn't hurt, but I am used to giving him shots and not myself. I stuck it in and wasn't holding the plunger. Well, hopefully, next time I will get it right. Seems I will have lots of practice. I meet with the diabetes educator next monday, and she seems to think that I will need insulin with my meals as well as overnight. YUCK!!!

Today I meet with the dietician, hopefully this will be painless...
