Pregnancy Update

Joy asked how my pregnancy was going so I thought I would give an update. 12 days to go and doing good! I am not advancing closer to delivery - I have been dilated 1cm for 3 weeks so that is discouraging, but I am under the delusion that it will all happen fast!! :)

This pregnancy has been very different than my first daughter. With both I was sick for 4 months (although this one was much better - I had my gall bladder out between and that helped), but with this baby I have gestational diabetes so that has been rough. I think this is the only time in my life I have gone a week without pizza, french fries, "real" ice cream, cookies, and CHOCOLATE...it's been nearly 3 months without! The good news is 2 fold - I have only gained 1 lb in the 3 months...no kidding and after this diet Weight Watchers is going to be a breeze!! LOL!

So I am on the home stretch and looking forward to the little girl who has been kicking me. :) I will post pictures when the time comes!

That's so exciting that your daughter's almost here! :) I cann't imagine having diabetes, but I admire how you always look at the positive side. :D

Eva - I am very excited!! Thanks for the compliment - I have to admit I have had my depressed days with diabetes and have days that I struggled. I have found out that as an emotional eater making chocolate chip cookies (and eating them) does in fact make me feel better!! LOL! But it was only really once incident at work that sent me in a depressed state. :) After I accepted it I got over it, but now I do still make Chocolate chip cookies I just try to eat one! LOL!

Joy - Will do!
