So life is turned upside down, right side up and all wonderful ways inbetween.
A little TMI for some maybe.
little back story.
My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for over a year now. With my diabetes and being overweight etc, the Doc told us that there was a very good chance that I had PCOS. A couple months ago I started taking ovulation tests and got VERY discouraged because in 3 months I did not have a single positive ovulation test. I went to the Dr. since we had been trying for a year and she said most likely I did have PCOS and we had to do blood work and a sonogram of my ovaries to know for sure. The bloodwork had to be on day 3 of my cycle (which was supposed to be the next week) I was heart broken that I was going to have to start fertility meds. I felt like my body was failing me in so many ways. Diabetes, PCOS, etc. I was getting a little angry.
My period did not come on Friday like expected, and it did not come on Saturday. BUT of course I could not be pregnant since I did not ovulate RIGHT.... WRONG The doc said anytime I am late I should take a test just to be sure. Sunday morning I took a test expecting it to be negative. I took the test set it on the counter washed my hands, brushed my teeth and started to walk about of the bathroom. I glanced at it as I walked out and there clear as day was TWO lines. Before I allowed myself to get to excited I went to walgreens and got a few more tests just to be sure. 4 tests later I was pretty sure I was pregnant!!!!
I had noticed my blood sugar was running a LOT higher than normal the last couple of days.
my blood sugar has continued to run a LOT higher than normal since. I have been to the Dr. and I see the OB in a couple of weeks and most likely I will have to start on insulin shots :( BUT if it is for a healthy baby it is 100% worth it.
The morning sickness has hit full force, I have severe food aversions too. Morning I can not eat anything, can not drink anything, can not lean forward. This morning I could not even walk into the kitchen without an overwhelming need to throw up.
HUGE problem I am running into is my blood sugar is already high, The ONLY thing that can help the morning sickness at all is crackers, which are all carbs and make my blood sugar go up even more... BUT if I can't keep anything down the baby is not getting what it needs and I am not doing anything good for the baby that way either. Damned if I do, damned if I don't.
The last couple of days I have not been able to eat anything more than a couple carrots or a stick of celery before about 4 in the afternoon, Then it is all still bland food. My poor dad spent all day making what I was told was amazing ribs, but even looking at them made me want to throw up so I had a bit of baked potato and had to be done with dinner yesterday. On the way home from my parents house a bean burrito sounded good, and it ended up settling fairly well. (thank you taco bell for boring bean burritos)
I have decided to allow myself 12 oyster crackers this morning and that seemed to help with the immediate need to run and throw up. I just ate those about 30 minutes ago so I don't know what it will do to my blood sugar.
I am so excited, overwhelmed, and so terrified, at the same time. My blood sugar was in 100% control before I got pregnant. Now I feel like I am back at square one with trying to get that in control along with dealing with nausea and what the baby needs.
I can not wait until my appointment with the OB on 10/4. She will most likely send me to either an endocrinologist, Or at least have a diabetes educator specializing in pregnancy that I can talk to and that can help me out.
