Mama said there'd be days like this . . .

"There'd be days like this" my mama said . . .

Blame it on the pregnancy, or on the lack of a full night sleep because of little ones still trying to get into mama's bed in the middle of the night, or what have you . . . but Sarah echoed pretty much what I'm feeling . . P.M.S without the M part.

Still have that peace that passes all understanding, and that's a good thing! Funny how even Joy doesn't depend on how your feeling . . . um, do you get that or am I jumping off the deep end here?

Oh well.

Now for the good, the bad and the ugly in reverse order:

The ugly part: We are at the lean time of our month, and after months of use our gas has finally decided to run out on us. Meaning, no hot water and no gas stove for 3 days now. (I'm naming and claiming that this problem gets resolved tomorrow!) I feel so gross, in sore need of a shower! But praise God for toaster ovens and microwaves!

The bad part: I have been diagnosed for Gestational Diabetes. Although not too surprising since both my pregnancies previously I got GD, but this time it has come quite early . . . so I'm off of sweets and really have been limited in the carbs and starches. Did you know that green peas were considered a STARCH! But peanut butter is a PROTEIN! WOO HOO! (no bursting my bubble and warning me about the sugar in Skippy, y'all!)

The good part: I'm a rule follower for the most part and if the doctor says no sweets, I'm pretty good at sticking to it (except for Skippy) and the end results usually are that I lose weight throughout my pregnancy and come out looking GREAT!

So, if I haven't posted anything of quality, or don't for a bit, forgive me, since I am trying to abide by the "if you don't have anything good to say" rule . . .

Just kidding . . . *giggle* like that would stop me~

I get it! I get the joy part! (Do I get extra points since I'm pregnant? hee hee)
Sorry to hear about the GD, but sounds like you've got it under control, so that's good.
I get to do my test this Wens...I'm just dreading drinking the gross syrup....eeew.

I have to say, I'm glad to be joined and understood on this journey of pregnancy with so many women, even if I've never met any of them in real life. :)

I get the joy too! :) So sorry to here about the GD! Glad to know that you are following the rules. I hope the days get better soon.

No sweets? Yikes! I don't know if I could handle it. That's so good that you follow the doctor's orders.
