we had a baby its a boy!

ok ok ok i'm lying ... we haven't had the baby yet but it was funny to say lol. we had our first nst on the 22nd. the dr came in the room to tell us how we have the most active little boy and that he looks perfect. we have a little over 5 weeks left until they induce me and a little over 6 weeks left until my due date. of course we haven't set anything up yet, had every intention to this past weekend but i ended up spending the weekend throwing up, yay. so now it's on to getting everything ready for the little guy. blood sugars are good. baby's good. big t's good. yay.

a little bit of everything ...

i've been so busy lately i haven't updated at all ... i've been reading everyone's blogs but i haven't had a chance to comment (so sorry! i'll be doing that this week!) so ... what's been going on ...?

i had my 31 week ultrasound on the 8th ... it went really well. they're going to let me attempt to make it until 39 weeks before they induce me. he wasn't breach anymore and it looked like the placenta previa was almost completely gone. he's still itty bitty and weighed 3 pounds 3 oz that day! but due to all of that they don't think i'm going to need a c section. :-D and my blood sugars are much lower, which the dr. is much happier about, lol.

diabetes wise things are looking pretty good. i'm still trying to check my blood sugar about every 1 1/2 hours to every 2 hours, which i'm great at during the week but on weekends i have a tendency to not follow the best schedule.

on the 9th we all (mom, dad, sister, her friend, brother1, brother1 gf, brother2, brother2 gf, myself, and big t) went to my cousin's wedding. it was almost a 3 hour drive one way but it was a nice wedding and the reception was beautiful.

and now for the fun stuff ... i'm still signed up to do the sugar bolus for the 1st week in dec!!! i'm super excited about it and i'm still working with some people for more items to use in the giveaway. so far i have some pretty fun stuff to use and i can't wait til it gets closer so that i can do a review on the awesome products and then give them to all of you!!!

and last but not least --- pictures ...

baby shower and mom's 50th birthday!

i have less than 9 weeks to go till baby t is born. :-D i'm so excited. we had our last dr.'s appointment on the 24th. the dr. wasn't happy with my bloodsugars, even though they were on average about 100 i had a couple that were between 150 and 200 so now we have to make sure that doesn't happen. we're back to checking every hour to two hours and making sure that i dual wave all of my boluses so that my sugar doesn't go high after i eat. yuck ... if i wasn't pregnant i'd be so happy with these blood sugars. either way i can't go past 39 weeks and we still have a 9 in 10 chance of a c-section. we find out this friday for sure about the c-section and hopefully schedule the date! it's getting so close.

this past saturday (the 2nd)was our baby shower. it was absolutely awesome. my mom, sister, and friend miranda planned it all. it was so much fun. we had somewhere between 70 and 80 people. there was tons of food and 3 gorgeous cakes. we were so blessed and received so many gifts for the baby and for us. the only thing that we still need is a crib mattress and a couple more plain white onsies lol. it was such a great day.

to add to it saturday was also my momma's 50th birthday! she spent her whole birthday making sure that our baby shower was perfect, so we tried to surprise her on sunday and plan a little surprise party for her at red robin (which is where she specifically wanted to eat lol) i'm pretty sure in the end she knew that she was going to red robin but i don't think she knew that her friends and mom and aunt would be there. either way it was a lot of fun and hopefully she had a great birthday. we got her some cute halloweenies and some gift cards and she got to wear a crown that my sister made ... and the people at red robin sang to her and brought her an ice cream sunday. (which i definitely helped her eat ... hehe.)

... oh and one of the girls we were with locked her keys in the car so my dad and both of my brothers had to break into her car for her lol.
