License to not eat sweets

I am officially licensed to be diabetic. Okay, not licensed, but I’m sure the diploma is in the mail. I went to school today to learn that I will likely be starving to death with the diet they have me on. I also have to check blood sugars 7 TIMES daily. Ugh. I am already out of fingers. The nurse who did my education says I should gain less than 25 pounds during the pregnancy, which is more than I gained with Eilis, so I hope I don’t go that high. I am at my highest weight ever now, and hoping that the starvation plan they are putting me on helps with that a bit. I see Dr. Packin again on Friday, and he’ll do another ultrasound, and if all looks good, schedule me for my last appointment with him the following week.
