First of all, happy 29 weeks to us! Next week will be 30 and that is just too darn close to 37 (full term) that it's starting to me anxious. Not my normal what-if-somethings-wrong-with-the-baby anxious, but a more holy-crap-we're-having-a-baby(!) anxious. It's very exciting.
Yesterday my work threw me a phenomenal shower!!! Lots of beautiful decorations, great food, and wonderful people! The prettiest cupcakes I've ever seen and super yummy too. And they got Chik-fil-a chicken just for me cause it's my favorite. Russ was a little uncomfortable at first because while he's met many of my co-workers (and is even good friends with a lot), there were a lot of strangers and it's just a little weird to be accepting gifts from strangers.
We got so many nice things!!! Our little place is filling up very quickly with stuff and it's only the beginning. Gifts keep arriving in the mail and our next shower is Saturday so there will be even more stuff! I have no pictures yet because the picture person hasn't gotten them to me, but soon! I promise!
I've started checking my blood sugar 4TIMES A DAY! I'll tell you what - this is the best way to lose weight ever! Not that I'm trying, but I know I will. I actually have to force myself to eat at the times I need to and once I eat, a 2 hour countdown begins and I can't have anything else until I check my sugar. So for instance, I just ate a frozen lean cuisine and while I can't say I'm full, I can't think of what else to eat so I'm done for now. Normally I would have had the dinner, then maybe in a half hour or hour had something else like some popcorn or cereal but now I can't have anything until my bedtime snack. I'm certain that I'm eating enough for the baby, so I'm not worried about that. So far I'm really enjoying seeing where my blood sugar is and trying to get it in the right range. I go back Monday to check in and I'm pretty sure they'll give me insulin shots to take because my morning numbers are pretty high, but that's OK. I need to eat a low-carb high protein breakfast and I'm just not sure what to eat! Suggestions?
