6 weeks!

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!


  1. So glad to hear everything is going well. One recommendation regarding the taste aversion and nause....try eating green apples during the day and when drinking water, if you put some lemon in the water it can help with the yucky taste in your mouth (which also can help with nausea). Just watch the carbs that hide in lemon juice as it's still juice afterall.

  2. Brooke - Thank you for the kind comments and CONGRATULATIONS on your pregnancy!!! Yeah for you and hubby. Praying that you have a healthy and easy pregnancy (both of you).
    As for my situation, just goes to show you that it is out of our hands.
