Baby C is going to be 5 weeks tomorrow. Life has been so overwhelming the last 5 weeks but I am finally getting a little time to try and catch my breath. I wanted to do a post on my hospital stay, mainly for me to have so I can remember for the next time around […]
On Wednesday, November 5th, my husband and I went to our scheduled OB appointment. The days leading up to the appointment were pretty dramatic (as described in a previous post) as we had failed the Biophysical Profile the previous Friday and almost delivered that day (Halloween) but didn’t, and then had decreased activity and a hospital stay the next day (on Saturday). Sunday through Tuesday we tried not to overreact about decreased activity because baby seemed to pass the non-stress test fine when we were at the hospital.
November is Diabetes Awareness Month and I’ve been pretty preoccupied with my new love bug that I haven’t been active in the Diabetes Online Community this month but I did receive my Eli Lilly 10 Year Journey Award for 10 years with Type 1 Diabetes on Friday, in time for the close of Diabetes Awareness […]

It’s been a few weeks since I wrote last and that’s mainly because my life has been turned upside-down, but in the best way possible. Two weeks ago, I welcomed my son into the world! Baby C was born Wednesday, November 5th, 2014 at 3:57PM, weighing 10 pounds, 14 ounces. He was 21 inches long […]
When your high risk OB tells you to start coming to the appointments with your hospital bag, it’s usually a good idea to listen to him. My high risk OB told me to start bringing my hospital bag starting at week 32. Of course my husband and I didn’t listen and showed up at week 32 without our bags. The weeks went by and we still didn’t pack our bags. Every appointment, though, went fine. Baby passed his BPP (biophysical profile) with flying colors, getting a 10 out of 10 each time. I would also go to the regular OB every week and my little guy was sitting high up, cervix completely closed, no sign that he wanted to come out early. We procrastinated on packing because it didn’t seem that urgent. It didn’t seem like our guy was going to come out anytime soon. It felt like we were going to go until our induction date on November 11th.
Hi all! So I’m getting a c-section in about 11 days and I wanted to get a few photos documenting the last few weeks of my pregnancy but I didn’t want to hire a professional photographer because I’m not feeling all that beautiful (i.e. feeling huge!) right now so it would most likely be a […]
Today marks the second anniversary of my blog! This has been one of the smartest things I have ever done. Writing this blog has had such an impact on my life in just two short years. I’ve written over 200 posts (this is my 217th to be exact), received almost 30,000 views and had people take the time to comment on my posts over 800 times.
So I haven’t done a “*Wordless “Wednesday” post in a while (is it even still a thing?) but I did want to share with you my favorite time of year as a diabetic (Christmas is my favorite time of year for my non-diabetic life). This is my favorite time of year because it’s when the […]
So Saturday marked the start of my 37th week, or when the baby is considered full term! I am ready for him to come anytime now :). Since my last pregnancy post, a lot has changed. At my 36 week appointment, I found out that my “little” guy is measuring in at over 9 […]
