those are 2 baby feet hanging out...
I had another anatomy scan on Friday. Everything looks good. The latest preggo issue (though nothing feels like a big deal after the Downs scare)... the latest issue is I have Gestational Diabetes. Barely. But I have it... I should be able to control it with diet and exercise. So no cliched ice cream pregnancy for me. At least at the end of it I'll be in better shape. I was gaining weight pretty fast last month, so this will slow me down.
I watched BFF do this so I know it's possible... I just don't have the hang of it yet. My first question for the nutritionist is: will I be able to break the diet on Thanksgiving? There's something about not being able to eat stuff I love at Thanksgiving that feels sad to me.
I have to learn to not have any emotions about what I'm eating. Friday at work there were a ton of treats (including a variety of gourmet bread puddings) that I stayed away from, and though I had a few minutes of wishing I could have some... it passed. Right now I'd LOVE some dessert... not happening. But it's a lot easier to say no to things when it's a matter of the baby's health.
Also, I've been feeling movement. It's very subtle, and only when I'm lying down... but I feel it. Can't wait for it to be strong enough for C to feel it, too.
Bottom line... right now I feel so excited that this is really happening. I still can't believe we're pregnant. I feel insanely lucky. I don't care that much about having to deal with GD. I'm just very excited. Time is passing quickly and I think Feb will be here before we know it.
