I had a lousy week. I got the stomach flu that was going around in my neighborhood and town. Friend thinks its the water...the only few days I drank from the tap since I ran out of bottled water. Bummer. But then again it could also be the flu too since its going around quite rapidly. Dh and dd fortunately didnt get it. Was hard for me with my diabetes though...had so many hypos...one time it went for a whole hour I was afraid that I would go into a coma (never experienced that) but it was not going up no matter how much sugar I drank, ate etc... it was the worst experience (esp after having thrown up then to feed myself so much sweet). Should be a rule that pregnant women should never get the stomach flu and let alone pregnant and diabetes women!
Anyway so that passed. Battling the hypo still which is apparently not only from the sick days but also due to my insulin intake is too much. Got that under control finally by today. Whew.
Otherwise baby is kicking rapidly in there. Had another ultrasound on Tuesday. Visited the birthing room and the afterbirth area where the mother and child goes. Seems like a nice area... nursing room for mothers who need to pump for special situations, weighing room, breakfast buffet room to brunch with other moms or with your family. Looks nice and makes me feel more at ease. Plus they have the intensive care unit right at the end of the hall (last hospital I gave birth at dd had to be transported to children hospital since the hospital couldnt give her the infusion she needed). So hopefully this baby wont have hypo but just in case...good to have everything together and not be separate from my lil one.
I am so nervous though... not having experienced being in same hospital with lil one. Am nervous about what to do when child is born and at night when we sleep. If she will sleep in my bed (which I assume is quite small) or in the crib beside me. silly things to think about. I know I will want child with me all time.
plus I have tons of christmas cards and gifts to finish and send out. So behind. What a week.
Christmas will be relaxing one for us here. Which we need.
Take care and hope everyone is doing well. Dont get too stressed out, dont want those babies too early.
