Better late than never!!!
We went on vacation in July and had a lot of fun. Now almost 4 weeks in a hotel with 3 kids was harsh and a challenge because I was incredibly sick the entire time and having some bad pain issues. But while we were gone We found out we were expecting #4! It has been exciting and trying all at the same time. I have hard pregnancies every time and this pregnancy is no different. I am dealing with pre-term labor, high blood pressure, gestational diabetes, some messed up vitamin/mineral levels and the normal morning sickness for me that lasts the entire time.
I am almost 26 weeks and can I just say that the hardest thing about Christmas this year besides being miserable is seeing and making all of this yummy food I love and not being able to eat any of it!!!!!!!!!!! I guess on the positive side of this is that I was eating pretty crappy and I have adjusted my diet dramatically to keep off of insulin. Yes well the doctor said that there was no way I could get the levels ok without insulin. I say POOEY doctor's don't know everything! I have managed to begin eating totally healthy and got my levels great. Ha! Now, I am missing my junk food and sweets but maybe it is best I learn to do without that processed junk anyway :)
