I have to say I'm actually interested in finding out what my blood sugars are throughout the day. It's becoming almost a game to me. Even though my poor little pudgy fingers are hurtin' already. Last night after dinner my levels were pretty high. This morning before and after breakfast were within a normal range. We'll see what my after lunch reading shows. I've been trying really hard adjust my diet with the things we already have in the house. I'm probably not grocery shopping until Thursday or Friday. I just want to thank you all for your support over my last GD post! You girls sure know how to make me feel like I can get through this :) So thanks!
Just a little while ago as I was making lunch, I looked down at my feet and was shocked! My ankles and feet are so swollen!! Like REALLY swollen. Worst I've seen them yet. I hope my blood pressure is okay. I think the swollen-ness could be from when I was sitting at the kitchen table and reading over the diabeetus info. We have one of those high tables and my feet were dangling off the chair for awhile. So maybe that's why they got so swollen? Right now I'm just laying on the couch with my feet up and hoping the swelling goes down...
By the way, my countdown widget ticker with the baby floating around in the bubble? Well, it's starting to creep me out because they baby looks to be about four years old :) However, the "Lil Peanut" Lilypie ticker I'm loving because it's soooo close to the 40 week mark!!!!
***Just wanted to update you all that I had a great blood sugar day! All four times it was within or lower than normal range! Woo-hoo! It was my first day of really trying to adjust my diet too, so maybe I CAN do this :) ****
