I wanted it to magically work and help me have better blood sugars and even better digestion and... and... and...
I'm out of magic pills to try. Well, except nigella sativa. And of course the really dull and boring EXERCISE. It's hard to start up with that again when I'm slammed with the first trimester sleepies. I was doing SO WELL the first couple of months of the year.... and then got hit with my first asthma attack in a few years (thought going gluten-free had cured my asthma, guess not) and had no stamina at all for the next 6 weeks or so. Which meant my new habit of exercising became un-habited. And I never picked it up again. And then, surprise, I got pregnant.
Ok, nevermind, this thread isn't about me... let's see if I can click some of those links and actually understand what's being said.
