Dear Insulin,
I hear that you and I are about to become new friends. I was hoping that I could get through my gestational diabetes without having to meet you. Please don’t take offense to that, because I’ve heard so many wonderful things about you. It’s just that I hoped my body would respond to my diet plan and an increase in exercise, but that doesn’t seem to be the case.
With two more months to go in this pregnancy, it looks like my need for you will only increase and injecting myself is the only way to keep my blood sugar in check.
I promise not to resist this treatment if you promise to help me out – to stabilize my blood sugar and keep the Bambino safe and healthy. Do we have a deal?
Sincerely,

Tracy
