I swear….the hits just keep coming.
After getting over last week’s virus, Morgan woke up this morning with green boogies sewing one of his eyes shut. Joy!
I feel so sorry for my little man. He’s had a horrendous couple of weeks with the fever from hell and now this. I know that daycare can at times be a cess pit for germs…but honestly the timing sort of stinks.
Jeremy is working tomorrow and I have 2 doctors appts. I missed my ob appt last week because Morgan was sick then as well, so I am going to have to haul him to the hospital and hope against hope that Daddy can keep him occupied while I am hooked up to the monitors because they do not allow children in the diagnostics clinic.
My ob is a bit more flexible…but it still isn’t fun to take your nearly 3 year old to your appointments! However, at only 2 weeks left to go, I doubt that these appointments are optional.
I’ve been controlling my blood sugar much better than in the first week–I think 3 weeks is pretty good for a learning curve! Mornings are still rough as I am still getting sick and don’t always want protein first thing in the morning.
I will post some of my successful meals since I’ve been getting a lot of hits on Gestational Diabetes.
- Egg Beaters scrambled with 1 slice cheddar cheese and 1 pc toast.
- English muffin (whole grain) with egg beaters/cheese and 1/2 c fruit
- Ezeikiel Bread (sprouted grain bread with high fiber) with peanut butter
Ask me what I am craving these days?? A big honking 5 oz bakery bagel slathered in cream cheese….. or a stack of pumpkin pancakes with maple syrup…..oh why do we always want what we cannot have 😉
Lunch and Dinner are much easier for me– some sort of lean protein with veggies and the occasional carb (1/2 to 1 cup serving). I miss waffle fries at Chik Filet like you would not believe! But have sort of found my replacement in broiled zucchini spears dipped in blue cheese dressing. YES, I know that Blue Cheese is on the no-no list but have you ever heard of a woman beating her head against a rock screaming “If only I’d avoided the blue cheese!!”
BTW–I have to say that I am proud of Jeremy for adhering to Meatless Monday even while at the hospital this week! He told me that he ate butternut squash ravioli and I might have had a tear in my eye. That’s MY MAN!
