36 weeks 1 day

I haven't posted in so long, but it feels like it's been a day. Time is flying lately. I have a lot to update on so I'll probably do a few posts this week.

The first thing I want to update on is how having gestational diabetes is going. It's hard. I hate it. I am constantly craving ice cream, milk and anything with sugar. I can't eat any of that. My fasting numbers are still high so my bedtime insulin gets increased every week. I am now having non stress tests and bio physical profiles done every week, twice a week. I am also seeing my regular OB, an endocrinologist and a maternal fetal medicine dr. I will be induced at 39 weeks, which is July 3rd. TWENTY DAYS from now. Having a lot of monitoring and drs appointments, plus still working, is making time go by so so fast. My last day of work is June 28. I wish it was tomorrow, but there really isn't any reason for me not to be working, so I'm just stopping the Friday before my Wednesday induction. I'll have Sat-Tues to get things done around the house and rest a little bit.

I'm really nervous about being induced. I want to try a med free birth, but I've heard pitocin is horrible so I'm  really hoping I can handle it. If anyone has had a med free birth and has any tips for me, I would love to hear them.

Here are a few pictures of things that have been happening around here. I'll do separate posts this week on maternity pictures, my showers and the completely finished nursery.
