Real Food

Finally, I am craving real food, not junk. Lately all I can think about is salad or meat or fruit. Feels so good to eat well again. I'm still eating some starches because they are easy but what I really want is yummy fresh veggies and fruit. Perfect timing, too, as I am getting my first glucose tolerance test on Friday. I'm sure I'll fail it. I don't think I have ever passed- pregnant or not. They are going to try an oral medication (different that the one I was on before) and see if that helps me before going to insulin. I'd really like to have as few needles in my life as possible.

Speaking of! Tomorrow is my second P17 shot. David will be giving me this one... I'll let you know how it goes. I'm sure we will do fine.

Margaret's other eye tooth STILL hasn't broken through. This time she isn't taking it too well. She will not eat (bottle) unless she is pumped with Tylenol or Motrin first. And solids? Forget it! She hasn't been this fussy since her UTI. This morning three solid hours of crying with tears. I felt so helpless. Since her nap she has been better and I'm hoping this tooth cuts through soon!

Get the shot in you hip, not the thigh. Its much safer.

Awww...I'm sorry Margaret is still fighting with that tooth to come through. Eli has been working on #5 and #6 for a month now and they just won't break through the skin. You can see half of the tooth but the skin must be super tough! Hang in there and buy stock in Motrin and Tylenol.

I'm glad to hear that things are still progressing nicely with the new little monkey. Good luck with your next P17 shot. I know I wouldn't trust DH with injecting me but I'm the one trained in injections so that may have something to do with it! Update us on how your glucose test goes....

Wow, looks like you have your hands full. Let me know if you need anything at all.
Take care.
