Before I say anything,
I am 16 weeks and 6 days pregnant
with baby Kimler.
I know it has been a while
since something nice was posted about diabetes,
even though it is ALWAYS at the front of everything
I do and I think about it before I go to bed,
during the time where I am supposed to be sleeping,
and the first thing when I wake up.
I can feel that baby is growing.
I felt an all of a sudden "pop"
and then BAM,
baby is REALLY growing,
this is weird.
then all I can think about
is how great my friends and family have been.
Between my sisters being so excited and asking how i'd doing,
to my mom who cannot be ANYMORE thrilled
for another baby in the family,
to my mother in law who is
pretty much a maternity clothing factory these days,
making me many different dresses and shirts to wear
as these maternity clothing in stores
are either super stupidly
or too long, or not comfortable or
not for my age.
My father in law and my husband Grandparents who have been
working so hard with house questions, projects,
always lending a hand.
I cannot think of a better family
to have on both sides.
And that my husband
is so supportive and helpful
and putting me first.
Don't think for a second he doesn't already,
but really, when i come home and he's willing to help
in the kitchen or bring boxes up or down stairs.
He's always understanding that
not only am I getting, slower,
bigger, and i'm sure much more
but he's there in this.
He's just my rock and I am so thankful that Diabetes so far isn't keeping me
from trying to find the good
in this pregnancy.
OKay back to baby updates
Also, I have had another OB appointment since
April and it was okay.
I don't care for this doctor either,
she was pretty much whispering and didn't feel any more
confident she knew anything about diabetes.
I'm really sick of being told that
this place is the best for "high risk"
yet I am doing more of the educating when it comes to
pregnancy and diabetes.
It's like I feel like I know nothing, but when I meet with some of
I feel like a CDE or something.
BTW- CDE stands for Certified Diabetes Educator.
I go again on June 23rd but
on June 27th I have a level 2 ultrasound.
I have NO IDEA what is involved with a level 2, so if you do,
please feel free to inform me!
Also, hopefully we'll find out what it is I am carrying?
Baby Boy Kimler
Baby Girl Kimler!!!
Thanks for sticking by me and supporting me
and reading about our life and
-Cassie, Austin and BabyK!
