Remember me?

Once again there has been a long pause between posts...what can I say?...family life has been hectic and time just seems to fly by without me even knowing it.

So I'll be 30 weeks along on Wednesday! Officially in the third trimester...which is both exciting and terrifying all in one. I've developed gestational diabetes so as of last week I'm on a diabetic diet and testing my blood sugar 4 times a day...sigh. My doc finally put me on some medication for the nausea and vomiting, I've been taking it for 2 weeks now and I'm starting to feel a little more human...at one point I'd lost a total of 30lbs, but now I'm starting to slowly gain a little bit of weight as the baby grows. She's kicking and squirming all the time now, which makes all the yucky symptoms I've had worth it.

My fibro is still cooperating nicely, but I'll continue to keep my fingers crossed. I have some pain, but nothing major. I have had a couple whomping migraines though, which I could have done without. lol

Really that's all I have to report. It's been a long 6 months of running to the bathroom to be sick, and I'm so glad that the end is in sight....I'll try to check in more often though.

Nice to hear from you again! So glad that things are going well at this point. I never experienced much morning sickness with either of my pregnancies, but it sounds awful! Good to hear you finally got some relief and how wonderful that your FM isn't acting up!

Just 10 weeks to go - good luck! Hope you can enjoy the rest -
