Exciting News!!!!!

That's right baby no. 2 is on it's way!!!!

For those who aren't aware I had insulin dependant Gestational Diabetes (GD) during my first pregnancy. No matter what I did one of my readings was always too high which resulted in my having to take insulin once a day. This time around I'm determined to make sure I'm able to either beat the whole GD thing or at least escape having to use insulin again. Thankfully though the GD had no affected on my first child & she was born a healthy normal weight of 8 LBs with perfect blood sugar levels after birth. On a plus side though I did lose weight during the last trimester of the pregnancy & was 10 kgs lighter a week after the birth then I was when I fell pregnant. Don't worry I had the weight to lose in the first place!

Today I did my first Low GI shopping for this next chapter in our lives & I must admit I'm really looking forward to this new healthier lifestyle (notice I didn't use the word diet?). I look forward to bringing you all along for the journey. Weekly I will post on my ups & downs, recipes & milestones of the pregnancy.
