Life’s Update

July 26, 2011 at 12:50 am (Baby Ducky, diabetes, life) (, , , )

I got to “meet” Ducky today.  We had our first ultrasound and got to see Ducky’s heartbeat.  The ultrasound nurse said that she only saw one baby but because we were measuring early we might find another (slim chances).  As you may not know, Hubs and I are both twins so this is something we’ve discussed.  She did find a cyst on one ovary, but the dr. she consulted with didn’t seem especially concerned, so we will watch it and hope it just disappears by itself.

Ducky is measuring smaller than expected, by a week and a half.  The ultrasound can be within a week (plus or minus) so we shouldn’t be concerned (according to the tech) but we are a little because we’ve used Natural Family Planning and so we know exactly which day I got pregnant, exactly when I ovulated.  We will have another ultrasound either at 19 weeks (which seems so far away!) or possibly in between since I am considered high risk.  I really hope that it is sooner so that we can get an eye on the cyst and hopefully move our due date back to when it should be (in my humble opinion).

I am so emotional lately.  I’m tired a lot and am really frustrated by not having my blood sugar under control.  I’m either meeting with the Diabetes Specialist in person or over the phone twice a week and each visit has us upping the dosage of insulin.  This is really hard for me because I am starting to feel like this is hopeless.  I know that I am making the best food choices and being smart, but it feels like it isn’t working.  Adding the smaller baby, cyst, tiredness, frustration over not being able to eat what I want, and pregnancy emotions, it’s making me weepy and emotional.  I guess this too shall pass.
