I haven’t posted much lately since we have moved half-way around the world, house-hunted for weeks on end and had pregnancy complications in between.
I have recently entered the state of pregnancy that is extremely uncomfortable and exhausting as all hell.
I have been trying to manage gestational diabetes for close to a month and my fingers are tired of being stuck.
I have to pee pretty much as soon as I get done peeing…sooner if the baby is applying pressure.Â I should just hang out in the bathroom.
I am seeing my doctor twice every week to monitor both myself and the baby.Â Mostly the baby, as gestational diabetes involves a higher risk of still birth.
Currently the baby is 3.5 lbs.Â and wiggling all the time.Â I think she was on a spin cycle all day Monday and oddly enough it was clockwise the entire day.
We FINALLY found a house we like and put a contract on it.Â We have looked at nearly 70 homes in our price range and only liked this one house enough to put a contract on it.Â I would venture a guess that our real-estate agent is annoyed with us and likely relieved that we are nearly out of his life.
I recently discovered that I will be REQUIRING nursing and sleeping bras…holy crap, I didn’t even know what a sleeping bra was for!
I also recently discovered that it gets really difficult to reach your “area” to wipe after peeing.Â Nobody tells you these things about pregnancy…
I haven’t seen my fuzzy boys (Francis and Burrito) in 8 weeks.Â I miss them so much I can’t stand it.Â I dream of them nearly every night.Â I am having withdrawal symptoms and I am so worried they won’t remember me, well at least that Burrito won’t remember…I am pretty sure Francis will remember, he will just be mad.
I have severe leg/back pain every day and night.
I have two baby showers coming up and I can’t wait!Â It will be great to see everyone AND I get to have cake since I have been on this no sugar/low carb/restricted calorie diet for almost a month.Â Yay!Â Cake!Â
If I had to choose between cake or death, I would definitely choose CAKE!
