Cathy, I'm sorry about the sugar.

I just sent my husband out for toffee cheese and potato chips, LOL!

I have been finding a lot that I can eat, but I want sugar and I want to cry and whine about it. Though I do want a smaller baby than last time. So I can't cry and whine too much.

How big was your DS Cathy? Mine was 9.2 (c/s), and the birth center I risked out of with him (BP issues) told me it might be a good idea for me to try to make a smaller baby (there have been questions raised about the size of my pelvis...not sure I believe them or that I'd grow a baby I couldn't birth, but I have considered it). My HB MWs don't seem to be as concerned about it. I told them I'm a little bit scared of making another big baby, but I think I'd have a totally different birth experience with no induction and proper labor support, kwim? All that said, I considered trying a diabetic diet to help make a smaller baby, but I just can't get enough freaking fruit!!! Seriously, I haven't met a pineapple that I haven't eaten this pregnancy

Mine was 10lbs and I had shoulder distocia with him. I don't have very big hips. I think the main problem was that my ex's mom had the same problem when she gave birth to him, but he was only 7lbs 10oz. It was one of my midwives hardest births and she's been doing it for 35 years. I think he might have come out fine if his shoulders weren't so wide, but who knows. My midwife thought he was going to be around 8lbs. She would have given me some herbs to try to start my labor a week or two earlier, but didn't know he was going to be so big.

Sorry about the no-fruit thing. Are you testing your blood sugar by fingerstick or just going by the sugar in your urine? My last was 10lb 1oz and he slipped out fine but I would LOVE to have a smaller babe...somewhere in the 8lb range would be an absolute dream!

OK, so I took myself off of the antibiotics. I just can't handle them right now. They only gave them to me "just in case" so that I don't get an infection where they took out the cyst. I'm just going to keep it really clean and watch for infection and if there are any signs of infection, I'll take the antibiotics.

Just urine right now, but I ordered something to test my blood through my Kaiser nurse midwife and I'm going to take the diabetic test instead of the glucose test because I can't have any corn and they are full of corn, most likely GMO corn which I react worse to. I am going to test my urine this morning with the strips my midwife gave me yesterday. She is so cool and helpful, I wish I was staying here just so she could be my midwife, but I'm sure she'll find someone good.

Post-sex spotting, oh, how I hate thee!!! All I want is a little lovin' every once in a while...but NOOOOO...I finally have a little relaxation and you blow it every time. I was wondering why it's been a while since we'd had sex...well, when you factor in the fear that spotting brings, it's almost counter-productive!

On the other side of life, our 8-year anniversary is June 1st! I'll be working, so we did a little date this afternoon while our oldest was at a friend's house and we just took little man with us. We went to Outback and I FINALLY got the steak and seafood that I've been craving so viciously! I had a New York Strip steak and 1/2 lb of king crab!!! Woohoo! I still have half of the steak and some veggie in the fridge, which will be either dinner tonight or lunch tomorrow. I feel so much better now.

Happy Anniversary, starshine!

Yesterday I went out shopping to get a few things that actually FIT me. I swear, I have no preggo belly yet, but none of my clothes fit. Thank goodness for Kohls! I got 3 non-maternity long dresses that will totally work with a pregnant belly, and also got two maternity tops that should work post partum, too. I also grabbed two Be Bands from Target (one in black, and one in white) to help with the fact that my jeans wont zip. All in all, I think I spent a bit more than I planned on, but I think it was worth averting the crisis I've been having the past couple days when needing to get dressed.

Today I plan on hangin out with the fam at their vacation trailer and going swimming. Im SO glad that I bought a loose-fitting tankini last summer, because I should be able to get away with using that for a swimsuit at least for a little while longer. And it hides the pudge, too.

Happy Memorial Day weekend everyone!!
Remember always those who served for our freedom. All gave some....but some gave all.
