Guess What!!??

Heartbeat is at 138 and baby is growing at a healthy rate. We waited to tell until the second trimester because it felt right to keep it for us the first trimester.

The first trimester went great. I was thankful I did not get any morning sickness. The unfortunate thing is I was incredibly hungry all the time. Being a diabetic, this was problematic. Per my dietitian I am to have my glucose levels back at 120 within 2 hours of eating food. This is so hard when you only want to eat very bad for you food all the time…like french fries. I want french fries so bad!

But I have been doing very good. I still allow myself the occasional treats while maintaining a lower A1C. According the Clarity app my A1C is at a 5.8, but I will know for sure in January.

The one nice thing about being a pregnant diabetic is seeing the doctor every 3 to 4 weeks. Joe and I get to experience more ultrasounds than most couples. We already got to see 2 ultrasounds and hear the baby heartbeat twice. It was amazing! I may have cried more than once.  I can’t wait until our next appointment in January.

Oh…and we are already working on the nursery in our tiny house. We are completely reorganizing the house to make room. It is a long process! And a tiring process for someone pregnant. I keep needing to take breaks…it is so annoying!! I am going to be happy that we did it early vs later in the pregnancy. Thankfully I have a wonderful husband who is also going into overdrive getting everything ready. I am so happy to have such an amazing husband.
