Time is going fast, yet oh so slow...
When you find out that you are pregnant pretty much at the moment of conception, the times seems to drag, yet here I am at 15/16 weeks (depending on who you ask) and I can hardly believe we are here and hopefully will soon be able to find out what we are having.
This pregnancy has been very different as I have been dealing with diabetes with it as well so am never sure if what I am feeling is related to being pregnant or being diabetic.
Overall, I have lost 17 pounds since becoming pregnant and pretty much have my sugars under control I do have days where things vacillate, but the way I seem to watch it, I think I am doing pretty good. I am sure it could do better, but that would require testing my blood about 20 times a day and that just becomes consuming.
Since I lost weight, I haven't really noticed a lot of change due to the baby, but just recently I have started to feel a little tighter in my pants and can feel my uterus when I am laying down. It is quite incredible. I still feel the occasional fluttering and floating feeling in my belly from the baby and am looking forward to feeling the hiccups and some kicking here soon I hope.
I did take a picture as my cousins have asked me to do so so they can feel a part of this from a long way away. The picture is absolutely terrible, but it captures me at this stage for better or worse. It is all just a moment in time and I at least remembered to capture it. I am great at capturing moments for others, but have never liked to have my own picture taken. I think that is rather typical of photographers to start with. :D
