I know the thought of having to give yourself injections sounds awful. But it will become old hat in no time! I was GD with my first pregnancy and cried buckets of tears when they told me I had to start insulin. I was terrified of needles. It didn't take long before I was used to it. My wimpy husband refused to learn how to give me an injection. And I just finished a year long cancer treatment where I gave myself injections 3 nights a week. It can be done! And if it's the best for the baby then it's a no-brainer. Good luck to you!
