37 weeks...

I honestly can't believe how quickly this pregnancy has flown by, especially considering that it has been nothing like my first. With Alara, I worked, I could eat anything I wanted, I was in Turkey, i spoke a different language at the hospital and they weather was beautiful at towards the end.

With this pregnancy, I've been in Belgium, I have been a homemaker, I have gestational diabetes and am on a pretty strict diet (more on that later), I have a fabulous English doctor and the weather has been terrible.

I just got home from the hospital, where I learned that although things are going well, the baby is not coming anytime soon.

Part of me is happy, I would like to be able to wait until my parents are here, and I have everything ready (I still haven't washed a thing for this baby).

But there is a very big part of me that I ready to get on with our second baby, but more, I am done with the diabetes. It's really hard work!

The doctor suggested that I do some squats, that they might help get things moving along, so that is what I'll start doing now, my daily squats- good times!

I'll keep you all up to date on how things go, but nothing is likely to happen anytime soon...


  1. Hi! I am sorry to hear about the diabetes! Get back to posting lady! I miss you!

  2. Miss you too! I'm back though, and ready to post!

  3. Hello! I am writing because I love your website and I am actually in the process of launching my own. I was diagnosed with Celiac disease recently, and started as a way to keep myself organized as well as meet other gluten free people, and share what I have learned. The official launch party is coming up, and I am trying to spread the word. Tons of companies, including Kinnikinnick, Lucy's and Bob's Red Mill are giving away free products during the launch! I am asking if you could help spread the word in any way, from tweeting, to writing about it, Facebook, etc. People, yourself included, are encouraged to subscribe by email or through Google friend connect ASAP to get in on the giveaways! Thanks in advance!
