And then there were three

Well, once again I find myself apologizing for being such a bad blog updater. I have so much admiration for people who update their blogs on a daily, or at least REGULAR, basis. Sadly, I am more of a sporadic blogger, despite my intentions otherwise.

But, this time, I think I have what is at least a somewhat legitimate excuse! Around early November things took a stunning change of direction here in our household, all thanks to a magic little stick:
Yes, that’s right! I’m PREGNANT! For most of October and November, we were just in shock and I was really not well. I wasn’t throwing up, but I really suffered from sheer exhaustion. To the point that I honestly do not remember parts of November and December. It was weird.

Then on January 22, we went to the doctor and came face to face with the fruit of our loins:

That my friends, is my 95% certain little GIRL!! I cannot describe the emotion when that grainy image appears on the screen above you. To see perfectly formed fingers and toes. To see her putting her fingers in her mouth like the picture above. To see an amazingly long leg like this:
I mean, it’s just overwhelming!!! I’m pregnant with a she-child and I am still just in SHOCK!
But it’s fun, and it’s challenging and it’s an entire new journey that we are going on.

My diabetic needs have changed and I have begun using insulin which has revolutionized my life! I can’t wait to tell you about that another time, but insulin has really given me back my quality of life that I had been missing for a few years now. In a nutshell, insulin ROCKS.

So, that is what is going on here in Norway. It’s cold, it’s snowy and I am just gestating away and in about 18 weeks, we will have a little mini-us joining our little clan for a whole set of new adventures!

It’s quite amazing really.

Yay! Congrats! How exciting! And yes, insulin is a good thing. As a T1, I am in awe of T2’s who can manage their bloodsugar without insulin. For me, of course, it’s not a choice. I’m glad insulin is helping you regain some life quality!

I really enjoy reading your blog. Congrats on the PG! As a T2, I can completely relate to the frustration of keep BG in check. When I got pregnant, I was really relieved to be on insulin. I was the only T2 I knew who actually enjoyed insulin more than oral meds. The control is just so much better. And it helped to give me a beautiful, healthy, little boy. Congrats again!
