"Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Matthew 11: 28-30
Last Friday I found out that I have Gestational Diabetes. At first it was overwhelming and stressful with all of the information that I was given. Being an unorganized person, I didn't think I could handle the rigid schedule of a strict diet (low carb), and counting carbs, as well as checking my glucose levels 4 times a day. The initial stress has worn off and it's actually kind of neat to see how the food that I eat affects the glucose levels in my blood.
But now I am slightly overwhelmed again. I have several appointments for the duration of pregnancy. I went from routine checks to "higher risk" and that scares me a lot, even though I should probably not fear. On top of that, I am highly irritable today. Maybe due to all of the changes in my diet, I'm having some kind of withdrawal?
Anyways, there's a brief update and request for prayer. Thanks in advance.
