36 weeks...

Well, here we are - 36 weeks! Can I tell people now that I am 9 months pregnant? Or will that freak people out?

Seems like Pumpkin and I finally got this gestational diabetes under control. We tried diet with no exercise, didn't work. We tried medicine, made me hypo-glycemic. And this past week, we tried diet and exercise, and to my (and my perinatalogist's surprise) we finally got it under control!! Whoop! Now we don't have to take that awful medicine, go for weekly ultrasounds, or BE INDUCED!! Ry has been such a great support - making me walk and exercise even when I didn't want to. It's been so hot lately, I didn't want to walk a couple nights ago, so we played Wii Sports for awhile. I'm not too good (could be this extra weight and all), but at least we were moving around and sweating.

I can't believe it has been 3 weeks since my last day at TAL. Doesn't seem that long... I think I need a post to show off all my nesting...maybe tomorrow when Ry has his Indiana Jones movie marathon!

We're almost at 20 weeks, halfway I guess. It all feels long, but in the end, it's amazing when that baby gets here. Hope these last few weeks are restful!

Congratulations on making it to a healthy 36 weeks! This next month might feel like forever, anticipating when pumpking will actually come, but be patient. Once he or she arrives, you won't even remember how long it took. Heck, I don't even remember being pregnant! Good thing I have the blog to remind me :)

Still nothing here. We're at 38 weeks tomorrow. Nuthin'.

Mary is ready to have this child out. I think it's because she knows how better off she'll be once she's not pregnant.

She's well past the "I LOVE being pregnant" stage.

Congratulations for getting that diabetes under control. I know it is not easy to motivate yourself to exercise, but you got such a great reason to do it.
