Oh the Pain!

I may not have gestational diabetes but my blood sugar level is way up there. In other words, I am on the verge of having it. My Ob-Gyn isn’t very pleased neither am I. I am now under a very strict diet and I am forbidden to eat sweets.

And the worst part of it all, I have to check my blood sugar before and after every meal, which means I’d have to prick myself 6 times a day. Actually, the pricking and hurting started with the glucose test last Tuesday. They had to draw blood from my arms and wrist for four friggin’ times!

For now, I’d have to stick to this diet and keep my blood sugar on a normal level. Otherwise, its insulin shots for me- more needles and more pain.

Meanwhile Butch won a roundtrip ticket for two to Boracay! Isn’t that great! We have up to November next year to use the ticket. I’ve never been to Boracay so this will be such a treat for me.
