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 […]
This is the second time it has happened in the last few months. Maybe it’s the pregnancy hormones but it really, really upsets me when you make the comment “I don’t think you are really diabetic.” How can you say that to me? What do you think being “really” diabetic looks like or means? I […]
The October DSMA Blog Carnival prompt is the following:
Type 1, Type 2, LADA, Gestational, diabetes brought on by surgery . . . . the list of types of diabetes goes on. Each type may have differences, but ultimately they are all diabetes. When we think about it, there is a whole lot that all types have in common. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t give credit for some differences too. So lets look back to our “Breaking down the barriers between types” chat on September 10th and discuss . . . . .
Anything easy about living with your type of diabetes that isn’t easy for another type?
Before you go judging me based on my blog title, bare with me for a moment. Before joining the Diabetes Online Community (DOC) a few years back, I didn’t know many Type 1 diabetics. I met a few here and there but the only one I really knew closely was my mother in law. She was diagnosed as an adult and she always made it seem like diabetes wasn’t a big deal. It could just be that when we get together, she is more interested in what’s going on with my husband (her son) than talking about our chronic condition.
About 10 weeks ago, I started to seriously freak out. I was about 24-25 weeks into my pregnancy and my belly was growing. I could no longer use my stomach for my infusion set or my CGM sensor
Today marks my official 35th week of pregnancy! My induction is officially scheduled for November 11th! I’m hoping my little man comes a little earlier on his own though so we don’t have to worry about inducing him. The doctor also said that depending on his size, we might induce him earlier. I haven’t gotten […]
I’ve talked many times about how much I love the Diabetes Online Community. However, I should amend that statement to talk about how much I love the people that write blogs, read my blog and converse on Twitter. I love my Wednesday night #DSMA chats (although I’ve been a little absent lately-check out Kerri’s blog […]
