So Amazon finally has this monk fruit concentrate but they cant seem to keep it in stock! I just ordered 4 today, hopefully it will be in stock again soon! It has no glycemic impact on your blood sugar, no cooling effect in your mouth and no bitterness.

Brought to you by type 1 Diabetes

No comments:


Nothing screams wake up its midnight like your insulin pump site going bad so you have to get up and change it, you might as well change your reservoir with only 25 units in it as well as your tubing, then your pump screams at you it needs to be charged.  So here I sit awake charging my pump and I figure I might as well check out facebook while up at midnight.  Just gotta love moments like these brought to me by type 1 Diabetes.

Stomach viruses while pg, not fun at all!

No comments:
So Ive decided that having a stomach virus while 25 weeks pregnant is just pure torture and hell.  I had it for 3 and a half days and thought I might just croak.  Never in my life have I had a virus make my back hurt as bad as that did, I almost went to the doctor out of concern from the pain in my spine.  Holy freakn cow!  Since laying down for over 3 days my body also forgot how to support my belly and today was just torture and of course the sciatic nerve pain today was also insane. Man oh man a whole new level of respect for having a stomach virus while pg over here, women should get awards for surviving that b.s.!

The announcement I keep forgetting to announce!

2 comments:
So I keep forgetting to announce on my blog that we are expecting baby #2 in October!   We are very excited yet apprehensive as adding another child is a bit scary, but not as scary as going for the first!

My diabetes has been fairly easy to manage, it is still Diabetes, but so far my its been like my first experience being pregnant and my blood sugars are easier to maintain.  The leg swelling has started and I have already had to give in to wearing compression stockings, they are fabulous you should try them!  They look really quite ridiculous but man oh man do they feel good to wear to keep the swelling/skin stretching/heavy leg feelings away! The other day my right leg felt like it weighed 50 pounds because I forgot my stockings at home.  

We are trying to avoid preecclampsia this time around and my OB has me taking a baby aspirin daily.  My blood pressure has been steady at its normal low numbers so far and my baseline 24 hour urine collection was normal.  Taking an aspirin daily has made me bruise more than I have in my entire life which is kind of crazy considering before I could whack myself pretty hard and not get a mark. (I am a wall and corner grazer) I also have this whirrling noise in my right ear all the time from it, but it is all worth it to avoid pre-e again.

My sciatic nerve pain came back with a vengeance at about 6 weeks, which I was hoping it could wait a bit longer but it did not.  I am forever grateful for my mother in law, she gave me foam roller because it was too hard for her and it has literally been my saving grace.  I LOVE my foam roller.  It helps the pain tremendously.  I think the one on the link is the exact one I have at home.  You literally roll on the floor over top of it on your back or wherever your pain is.  I sit on this and roll over the sciatic nerve that hurts, and boy does it hurt like hell to do this, but after you put the pressure on the painful spots until it hurts less you eventually feel a lot better.  Last pregnancy I was at the chiro office 1 or 2 times a week.  This thing has saved me hundreds of dollars!  It has also helped me a lot with my scoliosis back pain even before I was pregnant.

This time around I have stomach muscle separation which is kind of crazy looking and painful.  I'm hoping they don't separate much more since it is already a 1.5 inch gap around my belly button.  It kind of feels like my uterus is going to pop out of my stomach.  My skin doesnt really hurt or itch like the first time around, so that a plus.  Just another one of the joys of pregnancy and the toll it can take on a mother to bring another miracle baby into our family.

We are grateful for today's technology and the fact that with type 1 Diabetes I can bring children into our lives and not have many of the fears that women had just a few short decades ago about having children.

The dreaded ??? readings on Dexcom.

No comments:
Restarted my Dexcom sensor this morning, I think for only the third time (wink wink) and today most of the day I have the dreaded ??? readings.  DARRRRNNNNN it. I will have to get out a new one after work.  Three or four weeks is what I typically get out of one Dexcom sensor, I know that is nothing to complain about!  I just hate when they finally conk out because of how much they cost.
