17 weeks and 3 days.

I found out the sex of the baby today! It makes me so happy to finally know. I can’t wait for what the future holds for my little family. Wilson (my dog) is going to be the best big brother! Lol! My cat, Moka, might not be too thrilled about the addition but she’ll get over it eventually. I also think I can feel baby move. Its been happening a lot more lately but I get these little fluttering/bubble feelings especially in the mornings around 6 AM. After the appointment today my doctor asked if I could feel the movement because the baby is moving a lot and I told her that I wasn’t sure what I was feeling. It’s quite hard to tell, but what else could this feeling be? If it is my baby, which I am going to let myself think it is, it makes me SO happy.

More good news is that my doctors also said that I was doing great at managing my diabetes. I’m doing so well that they almost couldn’t believe it. One of them asked, “are you eating??” haha. Honestly, this was a shocker! I guess I pay too much attention to other diabetics online and their perfect numbers that I beat myself up over mine. When in actuality, mine are fine! The beginning of my appointments I always meet with two diabetes educators and we go over my insulin/blood sugars. I was so nervous this morning that I thought I was about to poop my pants. Not kidding. It’s like the first day of school and you wait until the teacher calls on you to introduce yourself. Or you have a big important test or a job interview to go to. Talk about stressful. They were really proud of me though and it just reassures me that everything will be okay. My doctor actually told me that I’m one of the best diabetics they’ve seen all year. Do you know how happy that makes me?! *sigh of relief*

This morning was great. I could not be happier at the moment. It’s also my mom’s birthday today! Happy Birthday to the best mom I could ever ask for! She is probably one of the strongest people I know. She has always been there for me with any problem I’ve ever had to face and has celebrated any accomplishment I’ve had. She is truly my best friend. She deserves everything and more today and every other day! I love her ❤
