Ahh Pregnancy, Its a magical time isn’t? The glow, your perfect little bump, guilt free treats for yourself………..Haahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.
I’m sorry I couldn’t keep a straight face any longer, magical time my arse, The glow appears to have by passed my house again, morning sickness still at almost 21 weeks, sitting bolt up right in bed so fast as your drowning in your own acid indigestion!! Sneezing and having to check that all of your internal organs or baby hasn’t shot out as your pelvic floors are non existent,
really who can say they HONESTLY do them. Now it’s back, back with avengeance, to piss me off to take away my joyous cake eating time, that’s right gestational diabetes, I’m talking about you, yo big fat party poo-per!!
Yep for me now its back to pricking my fingers until I have NO finger prints left, measuring my cereal so I don’t go over my carb intake. Having the tub of Ben & Jerry’s cookie dough taunt you every time you open the bloody freezer door!! Again we’ve started off with diet control, waste of time in my opinion as I know my own body as it’s only a matter of time before the insulin comes out to play and join the diabetes party. However the one saving grace this time is that the health professionals dealing with it this time are actually health professionals, my dietitian has actually been to university this time and hasn’t got her degree off the Internet. My last poor excuse for a dietitian in Dubai told me at 24weeks pregnant that I was only allowed to consume 600 calories in a day and wasn’t allowed to gain anymore than 2kg for the rest of my pregnancy. I’m not constantly being called Fat, obese, overweight this time which is a pleasant change.
Still its one of those things I have to live with for the next 20 odd weeks and if these changes and sacrifices keep my Bubba V safe then I’d pretty much live of widgety grubs if they told me too..
However when February is upon us please send……………Ben & Jerry’s, Krispy kreme dougnuts and crunchie bars!!
