Nice surprise from my body

About a year and a half ago I did a glucose and insulin test to help decide if I should follow some particular diet that could help IVF or take metformin. The endocrinologist said I did not have diabetes but that my insulin reaction was a bit borderline. She advised to carry on with low GI diet and actually gave me instructions to follow a diet for gestational diabetes.

I had already cut sweets and desserts of all kind, but that added more restrictions, such as on bread, pasta, rice and – the toughest of all – fruit. I followed that diet for over a year and I only went back to a less restrictive diet after I got pregnant.

Today I had my glucose test (which is compulsory at the 5th month of pregnancy in here). Having in mind what the endocrinologist told me before, I was expecting to be positive but I am not. I am seriously amazed that my body is behaving so well and I am very very thankful that all is going so well!

good unexpected things

    Yay! Isn’t it almost surreal when your body does what you want it to? I am still getting over that on a daily basis. I have my glucose test next week (they do it at 28 weeks here) so hoping for good news as well (and not to throw up the disgusting drink).

      It is really surreal! I better not over-do it with desserts though.. which is hard because all I want to do is eat cakes and chocolate!! Good luck with your test next week! Hope it’s good news for you too. xx
