Happy Valentines Day, friends! To be honest, I don’t care too much about Valentines Day. Jesse and I don’t really do much, and we usually just get cards for each other with me getting the occasional flowers. This year though, I did order him some chocolate covered strawberries! Well, lets be real here, I also ordered them for myself (hehe). Being on social media on a day like today can make the single person wanna puke, and I apologize for all those couples who rub their relationship in your face. I try not to be like them so I don’t really post anything on there. I don’t even remember what we did last year but I think we just ate at home. I wanted to go out tonight to dinner but I think Jesse wants to get food and come back home. Boring, I know. So we’ll see what happens.
For this past week of pregnancy I’ve had my usual random headaches that I get right when I wake up. I’ve also been getting tired pretty easily. I wasn’t sure if this was coming from being so up and down with an illness last week or if this is the third trimester doing it’s thing. I’m starting to think it’s just from being pregnant I’ve had good and bad days within the week. I’ve mostly felt really good but some days I’ve still been queasy and just feeling like poop. Speaking of poop, I really can’t wait until this pregnancy is over so I can stop being so constipated. TMI, I know. But hey, this is real life here and nobody told me you get constipated during pregnancy! Oh yeah, and I’ve also been super congested, especially in the mornings. I’ve pretty much been dealing with this my whole pregnancy but I feel like I have to blow my nose often, yuck. Sleeping has been 50/50 with me. Some days I wake up and feel like I slept so good, and then there are some nights where I wake up from like 4AM and lay there until 6AM. No clue why that happens because I’m not uncomfortable or anything. Little one moves around so much that I don’t even bother with doing the kick count because he moves around all day!
I’m pretty sure in my last post I mentioned I weighed 158, but after that week I still hadn’t gotten my appetite back so on Monday when I had my other doctor appointment I weighed in at 152, so I had lost some weight. Doctor says it’s totally fine as long as baby is growing, which he is! I got to finally see his little face at my appointment! It wasn’t the best picture but at least I got to see a glimpse. The past couple of times I’ve had an ultrasound he’s been head down so I couldn’t see anything. He still hangs out mostly on my right side, kicking my ribs and all. I also asked my doctor about inducing me early because of me being a type 1 diabetic. He said it is true (what I’ve read) about being induced between 37-38 weeks BUT if my blood sugars are doing good and baby is measuring good (not too big) then they would let me go to 39 weeks, but no further.
Diabetes wise, we’re still trying to figure things out. I’m still on a lower dose of insulin since the hospital but I actually increased my basal dose last night and this morning and I think it’s working out good. I was starting to have highs after meals when I shouldn’t have been. It sucks too because when it’s time for a snack, I can’t have one because my sugars are too high. I know I can snack on veggies and what not but when you’re hungry, carrots don’t sound all that great.
This post is a bit short but I’m honestly getting tired just sitting here writing this and I want to go lay down. I’m not really a nap taker so I’m thinking I should start so maybe it could help out with being tired all the time. I mean, I got nothing else to do! I can’t believe I’m going to be 30 weeks pregnant on Friday. I’m almost to the finish line!!
