Tomorrow...I will be officially 6 weeks! It already seems like time is flying by...but at the same time....keeping this a secret makes time seem really slow...
I'm counting down the days until we can tell our parents....that should be fun!
I had my first OB appointment today- things went well. I had some nightmares last night about "things going wrong" and I freaked out this morning before my appointment when I woke up. Hubby decided to go with me- so that made me feel really good. Since they were just doing blood work and other things...he originally was not going to go- but I'm glad he did. We met with the nurse- she was FANTASTIC! I loved her and she answered all my questions and calmed me about my fears. We did actually run into my doctor while I was there and she met Hubby for the first time. I think he liked her- so that's a plus. I'm officially due on October 27, 2011 and the nurse told me that they most likely would NOT let me go past October 29th because of the Diabetes- but we'll see how that goes.
In addition to my day, I had another appointment with the Endocrinologist this afternoon. I really needed to make adjustments since I'm experiencing more low blood sugars than normal. She was extremely happy to hear my news and she spent quite a bit of time with me this afternoon looking over numbers and making changes. I feel like I have a good plan and am ready for the next steps of moving forward healthily in this pregnancy. A1c was 6.5- up from 6.3- but I'm happy with that number and confident that I can bring it down even more over the next couple months. Especially since I'm testing on average about 9-10 times a day.
Other than that- I've been experience extreme taste aversions and nausea - I haven't been able to eat breakfast the past two mornings...and this sounds really funny...but the only thing I want to eat is a sausage, egg, and cheese biscuit. Really...not the BEST choice for healthy eating...but at least I can stomach it. After talking to the nurse this morning, I'm going to try eating some crackers before getting out of bed to see if that helps. I haven't officially thrown up yet, but I was REALLY CLOSE this morning- but the Hubby was there to rub my back and I thought that was sweet.
I was off work today because of my many appointments, but feeling extremely tired- I did take a 2 hour nap- so I'm awake and feeling pretty good! Thank you all again for your emails and support- I'm happy and excited to share my journey with you all!
