34 weeks, and 4 days
Sunday, September 10, 2017      10 comments

So I haven't been blogging much. I've had limited energy, of course, and been busy with the boys too. Lily is getting huge. My ultrasound last week measured her at about 5 lb. By about 4pm I'm pretty much toast for the day. I still have... Read more

I'm 31 weeks tomorrow. And I'm so tired. Everything is hard, and my boys want nothing more than for me to pick them up, and I just can't do it. My middle baby gets upset, but my oldest understands that I can't, but then he gets worried becaus... Read more

Welcome to the Third trimester!
Thursday, July 20, 2017      5 comments

So I am officially in the third trimester! I can't believe it. So far it has alternately flown and dragged. Little Lilian is due on October 18th, but due to medical complications, which this pregnancy has been FULL of, I will probably be sched... Read more
Six years, and what has changed?
Saturday, July 01, 2017      7 comments

Ok, that title sounds really depressing! I didn't mean for it to be. I didn't realize I'd been here for 6 years till I started getting congrats from people! LOL. I started this site the year I turned 30, just after I moved in with my then-fia... Read more
Isn't it time for this baby to be here??
Thursday, June 29, 2017      7 comments

I am so over this. The weight is coming off, which is great, but I can't keep doing this. I'm analyzing like EVERYTHING that goes into my mouth. I can't get my numbers under control. I am SO SICK of eggs. I'm sure they'll put me on meds the ... Read more
Finally looking up!
Friday, June 23, 2017      6 comments

So my numbers are finally evening out! I've even lost weight! Which makes me a very happy momma. One of the hard things for me being pregnant, is seeing all the weight I lost come back. So I'm happy. I commented on this to my mom, who said "... Read more
Useless dietitian
Monday, June 19, 2017      10 comments

So I finally saw the dietician today. What a waste of time. She managed to explain some things, but mostly she was confused by my questions! I still have morning sickness and needed to eat more frequently than suggested; she wasn't sure what t... Read more
Yo yo numbers
Thursday, June 08, 2017      8 comments

I'm working hard on getting my GD numbers, trying to sort out why my numbers are high when they are, and why they are good. Due to some insurance problems, I will probably NOT see the nutritionist tomorrow. *sighs* Insurance is a pain. But I ... Read more
The Pity Party is OVER.
Tuesday, June 06, 2017      5 comments

Ok, so yesterday was the pity party day. I spent all day, and part of the morning feeling sorry for myself and just generally miserable. I'm done with that. I have this. I don't know what I'm doing, but I'm trying different things; tracking m... Read more
Still fighting with the GD

Food is just so hard these days. I'm still having trouble with my numbers. It would probably help if I had been able to sit down with a dietitian. I finally have an appointment with one on Thursday. I have spent all day totally frustrated. I ... Read more

I saw the OB yesterday. Lillian Rose looks good. Unfortunately, I've developed gestational diabetes on top of the anemia. This pregnancy seems to be especially hard on me. I'll be making an appointment with a nutritionist and the high risk d... Read more
Wow, it's been awhile.

I'm sorry I've been gone for awhile. But I'm back, and I'm finally taking care of myself /again. I'm 16 weeks and 4 days today. So much has happened. First, we found out we're having a girl! Finally! Horray! Her name is Lilian Rose. My h... Read more
Depressed. :(
Tuesday, April 25, 2017      8 comments

So I got blood work back today. Apparently I'm anemic, and my a1c was high, which means now they're gonna send me for a 1 hour glucose test, which is like the most awful thing ever. I've done some reading and research on managing them, and it's... Read more
