Time To Balance Lots Of Doctor Appointments….

All the superduper extra monitoring is about to start. Just for a bit o' background info so you don't have to try and dig through past posts: I'm 28.5 weeks now and was diagnosed with GD at 15 weeks. They suspect possible Type 2 (T2) that was undiagnosed (but I honestly don't


Childbirth – My Body Is Going To Do WHAT?!

Last weekend we had our childbirth class. It was a couple hours long on Friday night and then about 3ish more hours on Saturday morning. I kinda liked it that way rather than going for an hour or two once a week for 6 weeks… that's just too much. The class was


Good-bye Sleep, Hello Baby Feet

Today was a very long day. It's not easy to go to work and do all that is needed to be done on a Monday when super exhausted. I didn't sleep well at all last night. It's the worst night of sleep so far this pregnancy. I went to bed around 10:30pm


A Look At The Growing Belly Of The Second Trimester

Recently I've heard more comments about the size of my baby bump and have been catching more people staring at it too. This makes me happy to know I'm showing more and it's more obvious that I'm preggo and not just fat! When I got dressed on Saturday to go to a


Coping With Gestational Diabetes: The Beginning

I have got to stop procrastinating and write about this already. Heck, dealing with gestational diabetes (aka GD) is one of the reasons I wanted to blog about my pregnancy. It seems like there is a lot of misinformation and even NON-information out there, either that or a lot of pregnant women


Things I’m Fearful Of As A First Time Mom

It's normal to have worries and fears throughout pregnancy. Especially as a first time mom, there's a lot of unknowns out there. I do know that some of the things I'm fearful of or worry about are out of my control, some are in my control, and most things will work out


To All The Pregnant Ladies (Video)

I saw this mentioned over at yesterday and got a kick out of it. I'm impressed with her moves… she's 38 weeks pregnant in this video. I was like, damn, I could barely walk in heels pre-pregnancy, let alone dance like this!


More Nursery Decorating!

This morning I decided to tackle a little more decorating. Last weekend, Brian hung the wooden letters for babygirl's initials. Yesterday we went to Babies R Us to update some registry items (the stroller I originally selected was discontinued and we're not ready to buy one). I picked up a photo frame


Anatomy Ultrasound, Round 2

This morning we went in to finish the anatomy ultrasound. I asked babygirl nicely to cooperate with positioning while we were driving to the appointment. Thankfully, she listened. This time she was head down (I thought I felt an increase in pressure in my lower abdomen!) and not quite as scrunched up.


Nursery Progress!

The holiday weekend was quite productive. We did some good housecleaning (not just surface-get-rid-of-clutter-cleaning). With the help of some friends, the nursery is now painted! Brian also put together my glider, so it's starting to look like a nursery, which I find very exciting. Be warned, this post will be a bit
