39th

Today I have so much to be grateful for. Never in my life did I think that I would be turning 39 and be pregnant with twins. Never. I have never felt so blessed in my life or on any of my other birthdays. This one will go down in the books for sure. I don't know what the future will hold for me or my family, but today is the best birthday in the past 39 years. I am married to the absolute best man on earth and definitely my soul mate and have managed to parent a teenager that is doing fantastic in school and holding down a job. She is a great kid!

Today I had my class for my GD. They gave me my meter and showed me how to work everything. My fasting sugar levels were 120 which is high. After discussing all my medications, the Dr. definitely believes that my steroids are causing a portion of my high levels, along with being pregnant with twins. We weighed and I only gained 1/2 pound since my OB appointment a few weeks ago. So my weight gain isn't out of control by any means. She did say that I will most likely be going on insulin next week when I come back in. Since the Metformin isn't working to keep my levels down. Also my diet is not far off from what they want me to start doing. I will test my levels 4 times a day and keep a food diary. We shall see what next week brings. I did celebrate my birthday with Chick-fila though. Not the best idea, but I did enjoy it :)

  4. Happy Birthday T! SO glad to hear it's a wonderful one!

    Glad to hear the doctors are monitoring you so closely. With everything you're on, it's quite a balancing act. But you're doing amazing and I know that it will lead to good things in the end. Hang in there, take it easy on yourself and know that with each passing day, you're getting closer to meeting your girls and holding them close.

    Lots of love.
