Hello girls....I haven't given an update in a while so here goes:

I had an u/s at the specialists office on Tuesday (I have one every 2 to 4 weeks now to check on her growth, my fluid, etc. etc.). At my previous u/s baby was measuring big like 80th% and they were cautious about the "big diabetes baby" thing. My blood sugars are pretty good but weekly they change my insulin dose to get things better - especially my fastings...I CANNOT get them below 100 no matter what I do......they keep uping the amount of long acting insulin I take before bed but it doesn't change my numbers at all.....ahhhhhhhhhhhhh. So anyway at this u/s she was more normal size 40th% and my fluid was perfect. I was so happy about that. I had excess fluid with DS and that was another cause for concern that some far we don't have to deal with. She is head down and very active. So they decided to start my non-stress tests next week (or the next....? sometime soon I have so many dang appts I can't keep track). I'm now seeing my regular OB's office every 2 weeks because of my many high-risk obstacles....but that's makes me feel better knowing how quickly we can go from everything is okay to let's get this baby out. My blood pressures are still very good so that is good too.

I'm kind of ticked because I wanted to take a "refresher" birthing course at the OB's office but three of the instructors are on maternity leave and they are not doing it right now.....so I'm at least trying to get a tour of the hospital (cause I didn't deliver DS in the state I live in now) and I cannot get anyone to call me back....since I"m not in one of the birthing classes its been a bear to try to hook up with someone to get in on a tour. I'm starting to get really annoyed over it.

But onto a better note - my baby "sprinkle" is this weekend and I am totally pumped. Plus we got all our computer stuff moved upstairs and the baby's room totally painted and her bookshelf ordered so as soon as it comes and DH puts it together we can put the nursery together. I'm hoping that my mom and Dad have gotten me the lamp shade and valance that match my bedding for a shower gift cause that will really complete the look in the nursery!

Well that is all for now. Tonight I hope to post pics of the nursery progress as well as DS's curious george birthday party he had last Saturday that was totally fabulous!

thanks for reading my long rant and ramble!

I don't know much about GD but I'm glad Nora's measuring around normal size and your fluids are good. The whole situation of taking the insulin, etc sounds like it could be rather frustrating but you seem to be handling it quite well!

Sorry you're having a hard time getting a tour of the hospital. I hope you can get in contact with someone soon and get it organised.

Have loads of fun at your Baby Sprinkle and I can't wait to see pics of it, the nursery and your son's birthday party!! Bring them on!

Adn that is crazy about the hospital tours. I just went to my local hospital's online websites and found out about tour info.

Sorry about the buttholes at the hospital not calling you back for a tour. Could you just show up some night and ask for one?

I'm glad everything is going well and little Nora is growing just as she should! I can't imagine having all the issues you have to deal with--big *HUGS* to you!

I can't wait to see pics of Harrison's birthday and the nursery! I already decided to do a monkey theme for Loch's birthday!

Thanks girls! Yes pregnancy is not fun for me, but its all worth it in the end when I hold my baby! So I called the number again the nurse at the OB office gave me and I finally got the lady that I was trying to reach. She was like - oh no problem - just come by May 24th and meet us and come along. And I can bring my son - its all fabulous! Sometimes you just have to keep trying.....

I'm glad to hear everything is going good..

As you know, I've been through gestational diabetes and I'm going through it again.. Just today, I can see my numbers start to raise.. But, when they measured Adriana they said she was going to be a big baby.. But she was only 6 lbs 15 oz's and she was born 39 weeks and 2 days0.. Far from a big baby and she's still petite to this day.. So don't stress about it to much.. As for your FBS.. I had a heck of a time keeping my numbers below 90 with Adriana.. Do they have you on NPH at night? I had to go on a aggressive sliding scale to keep my numbers below 90.. I was uping my dose 3 units almost every other day.. It was crazy but it stayed under 90.. I'm also having FBS problems with this baby.. I'm already on 16 units at night and my numbers have been ranging at 90, so I'll have to up it again.. :/ I can relate on how you feel.. Have you talked to your dietitian about this? It is possible to get your numbers below 90.. Ask if you can go on a sliding scale for your FBS. I would hound your Endo/dietician until you get those numbers where they need to be. . That's what I did.. hehe.
