Adventures in Pregnancy – Fetal Evaluation

 

So even though my blood sugars, blood pressure, and the baby’s heart rate have been close to perfection (her words, not mine!) my whole pregnancy, she has me going for twice weekly fetal evaluation just to ensure things are staying on track towards the end of pregnancy, because I guess towards the end things can (and sometimes do!) change quickly, and she feels this is something that will help arm us with valuable information.

I do like getting to hear 30 minutes of a strong heartbeat twice a week, as opposed to the 3 second clips I was getting prior!

It is a truly magical sound, like nothing I have ever heard!

Life is Short – Eat the Zeppole!

We are having our yumminess a day late, because I was too full yesterday!

Baby will enjoy his or her first zeppole, and so won’t mom and dad!

Would I eat this every day? No (but I could, easily!) but I look forward to this splurge every year and I enjoy every bite with absolutely ZERO guilt.

I’ll take some extra insulin and enjoy every morsel – Diabetic or not, life is short; you DO have to live a little, dontcha know?! 😉

Did you enjoy a zeppole this year?

Saturday Sweat – Leg Day!

Definitely not drunk, because baby! 😍

It’s been a while since I could wear this shirt because it definitely shows my little bump (which has been fairly evident since early on due to my small size) and as much as we wanted to share our secret earlier, we just couldn’t!

But I feel so free having it out there and not having to hide anymore – hardest secret to keep EVER, am I right?! I mean you wanna shout it from the rooftops but you have to be cautious early on!

If you pay attention to the ‘was’, you can see our little bump 💕
