32 weeks with Baby #2

I am 32 weeks pregnant with baby #2 and this baby seems to be causing me more grief than Audrey did when I was pregnant with her. All the doctor keeps telling me is that I am older and “our bodies as they age don’t handle things the same as they did when they were younger”. Booo I’m not old.

Anyway I have gestational diabetes (so they say, I am still not convinced). I am having to check my blood sugars four times a day and cut out cookies, cakes and Cokes, the 3 C’s - everything I love. SO no more going to subway and ordering chocolate chip cookies, no not as a side as my main course. Now my blood sugars have been LOW not high.

The baby is measuring a little on the small side which is odd for a baby of diabetic mothers, usually these babies develop a “fat pocket” and get very big in utero. So the Doctor is a little concerned so I am going to the hospital twice a week for non-stress tests and I am having more frequent ultrasounds.

Audrey is busier than ever just as I am slowing down more. She is learning so much every day and is really starting to comprehend things. I know she is going to be a great big sister. Hope to post again soon.
