Any of the sisters deal with gestational diabetes but already had a restrictive diet pre and during pregnancy?
Doctor says I have it, but I honestly don’t believe them. I don’t eat cane sugar (not even in sauces), gluten, dairy, or soy. So not surprised I couldn’t process their drink-I don’t consume stuff like that regularly. I walk a mile or do HIIT training 5x/ week. The condition doesn’t run in my family (and my mom has 4 sisters w/kids-good sample size) (cont’d in comments)

So now they want me to meet with a dietitian and all of this crap that I’m fairly certain won’t work

I had it.....came out of nowhere with my 2nd child. Met with the dietitian, came up with a plan, followed the plan, had a healthy baby girl. Do what's best for the baby. BTW diabetes had little to do with the amount of sugar you ingest and more to do with how your body sugars (in all forms including carbs and fruit) and the function of the pancreas. Wishing you ah happy and healthy pregnancy!

For the first time in my life, I have a mouse problem in my apt. It’s a pre-war coop. Saw one for the first time in July in the middle of the day (!) landlord had someone come out and plug holes from where I saw it come from. Three months later, found a mouse in a glue trap and then some droppings. Been going crazy caulking and filling any opening with steel wool and caulk, but does anyone have experience with this?? At what point do you just move? Don’t know if I can take this anymore.

Am I tripping? Everyone loves calling my daughter (2 months) "lil chocolate drop" or "look at all that chocolate". I love my daughter's complexion, not only because it's mine, but because it's beautiful. However, I can't help but feeling like ppl "other" or make it weird by avoiding saying dark. Calling her dark is acceptable and appreciated. I know "chocolate" comes from a place of affection, but I just can't embrace it 💯.
