time has just FLOWN by lately… and here we are at 30 weeks! well 31 tomorrow, i’m late on this edition of my preggo summary but wow.. 9 weeks left. i am NOT READY!
this week has mostly been me trying to figure out the balance between carbs and sugar and protein, but i have my gestational diabetes under control with just diet alone so i won’t be worrying about pills or insulin shots i’ve been learning how to cook which i figure will be an important mom skill later on so i’m kinda glad this forced me to get off my butt and learn to make food that isn’t in a cardboard box.
also food related, i have what i think might be my first actual preggo food craving! sure its nothing really crazy but i have been craving the taste of pickles and mayo. kinda like how you would taste them on a nice burger… except i don’t want the burger portion, i just want pickle chips to dip in mayo…
vincent has taken up residence in my ribs recently, and i have a lot of issues with breathing. the kicking has also been stronger and he actually kicked a small paper bowl off my tummy the other night while i was on the phone! lots of flipping and lots of movement going on.
nothing else really going on. i keep going between the scared first time mom thing and the excited first time mom thing… on one hand i’m scared to death to have this baby on the other hand i’m excited as hell O_o
