Disappointing Dr. Appt.

Well yesterday I had my appt and I failed...again. My fasting at 8:30 came back 94 and my 1 hr after meal was 122. The norm for fasting is 90 and 1 hr after 120. Although I was only a few up they are going to treat me. So it's confirmed, I have Gestational Diabetes. When she was telling me this I teared up and all I wanted to do was bawl. I held it together and she told me to not stress over it. She told me to do another week of noting down my meals and numbers. I go back on the 14th for another test and to see what will be the next step. She did mentioned that there might be some discussion about having a little bit of insulin to control it.
Honestly, I don't want to have to go through that. I was telling hubby about this and all he was able to say to me was "don't to worry everyone gets it". Not to be mean but, hubby's words kind of bugged me. How can he say that? I was looking for some comfort and all he gave me was nothing. I started to cry and hung up on him. I spent the whole day just thinking about everything yesterday. My mind was so preoccupied that I didn't do much work. Now I have tons to do today.

Oh well, I know it's not the end of the world, but I do need to take care of this. My goal is to stick with this GD diet until I deliver baby Cee. This will help me and the baby now and me in the long run.
