<b>What are you craving?</b><br>
Everything I'm not supposed to eat!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br>
Instead if taking the 3 hour glucose tolerance test a second time in this pregnancy, and in light of the fact that I am regularly spilling sugar in my urine, I asked the MFM to just label me GD and be done with it. So I am being VERY careful of what I eat, and poking my finger several times a day. I think it was a good call because if I get too many carbs my glucose is a mess!<br>
Soooo I am craving FRUIT!!! I miss fruit so much. I am a California girl and accustomed to having all the fresh fruits and veggies I could possibly want, at any time I want. I am currently allowed only 2 servings of fruit per day. For perspective that is 1/2 of a banana, and a small apple. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shake.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shake"> Counting down the weeks till I can really have fruit again.<br><br><b>How are you feeling?</b><br>
Because of our previous and recent losses I am only just now starting to get the "Oh my gosh, we're gonna have a baby!" excitement. I am so grateful to still be carrying this little one and to be beyond the viability threshold.<br>
Physically I have been pregnant for basically 18+ months straight at this point. I am very tired and achy and everything from my ribs down just hurts...But is is so worth it because I AM STILL PREGNANT!!!!!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy"><br><br><b>Guilty pleasure?</b><br>
Right now... an occasional diet, caffeine free Dr. Pepper <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag"> and Trader Joe's Classic Dark Chocolate bars in tiny pieces <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yummy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="yummy">

I'm sorry for your losses Mama, and am rooting for you and your growing baby!!!<br><br>
Ugh, not being able to eat much fruit? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"> What self-control. What's the first thing you're going to devour after giving birth? Pineapple? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
This is obviously not your first child - is it your dh's?

For some reason I always NEED a grilled cheese sandwich on sourdough as soon as I give birth, so that will be first, followed by an apple, some apricots, a peach and a nectarine! Oh, and grapes I should be able to get some organic grapes by then too, and melon, and, and, and<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eat.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Eat"><br>
This as you noted is not my first, it will be my hubby's first. He has been a major part of our lives since I divorced my ex and has been around through all of my youngest's life. Hubby is kiddo 3 of 7 and has spent a lot of time with his siblings and their families. He is WONDERFUL with kids of all ages, and has become a fantastic step dad! I am starting to see just the faintest hints of nervous, anxious, uber-protective parent starting in him, he is in love with my bump and the baby inside. I love it! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">
