Just wondering how we all are doing with finding the beads and getting the sent. I received a few but know more are coming!! :-) I am excited to see them all and send them out to you all.
Just risked myself out of homebirth with Gestational Diabetes. *sigh* tried to manage it with diet and exercise but I am thinking some insulin might be beneficial for my overall care. So disappointed but happy to know I am doing what feels right for me and my family.

Sky and lavender this is me saying "boy do I feel you here!" Minus the pupps most everything you write could be my words. I've also had signs of preterm labor and gestational diabetes (I am starting insulin for it today or tomorrow) - and was risked out of homebirth so now I am seeking a new provider.

I am 32 weeks and my fasting # are higher. Today I meet with my endocrinologist and OB to talk about my levels. I am feeling insulin is something I don't want to take for several reasons- including the amount of stress I will feel doing it since it reminds me too much of my dad who died this past October. Also I feel it might be too aggressive treatment at this point. It is relatively a new process as we just really discovered all thus within the past month. Beans bring my...
carbs are almost non existent in my world = what is pasta  :-/
