It's not always for you to learn to make lemonade, sometimes its just the sizes of your Twins :) Fortunately and unfortunately both reasons apply to me this week.
I thought I was done with staring at pee sticks. Wrong.
I thought I was done with poking myself with needles. Wrong.
Thank goodness I have LOTS of experience with both.
I have gestational diabetes :(
Yes, at 14 weeks I find out I have failed my glucose test. And this my friends pisses me off. Not necessarily because I have to follow a strict diet or poke my finger 4 times a day or test ketones in my urine, no. What pisses me off is that I never fail any test, now I broke my own record of perfect grades. And I know its not the same kind of test but the fact is I'm using the same words: "I failed the test" so I think I can be upset about that.
Me having gestational diabetes is obviously not cool but I'm glad we found out early. I want to look at the bright side: I get to eat very healthy and continue my old habits of peeing on sticks and poking myself. Those are really not that bad, the peeing is for testing if I'm eating enough (and to ease my bladder) so I won't starve my kids, and the needle poking is just a pinch. The little machine is cool too, I feel like a lab technician :) I have to record all results including everything I eat and fax it over twice a week to that office AND see them every 3 weeks.
In all honesty, I am upset. BUT I'll do anything for my babies and I'll do it with a smile :)
So yes LIFE, I'll make lemonade but I can't drink it, you understand....
