"This first trimester can be a real awakening because now it’s real. Your blood glucose no longer affects just you, but also your baby. This added pressure to achieve “perfect blood glucose” can take a toll on your emotional and mental health. But repeat after me: You don’t need to have perfect blood glucose to have a healthy pregnancy."
