Okay, so today I went to my High Risk OB appointment. Everything is going well. And the good news is that I don't have to stick myself with anymore needles. Don't misunderstand, I still have to continue with the insulin shots before meals and the blood sugar testing after meals. But at every appointment I have had so far, they have told me that I have to add another way to stick myself. Today, there were no MORE needles, just the same amount of needles as before.

Need less to say, I was elated.

Then the nurse told me something.

I asked her if I still had to give myself shots and all that fun finger pricking stuff after the baby was born. She smiled and said that as soon as he is born, I can eat whatever I want. Are you kidding me? I went from elated to, well what's more than elated? Ecstatic? Overjoyed? Well whatever it is, that's what I am.

I write this to tell those of you that visit while I am in the hospital to bring reinforcements. Sweet, sweet reinforcements. Here is a list of the things that I like: Feel free to bring more than one.

Coca Cola Cake from Cracker Barrel

Molten Chocolate Cake from Chili's

Double Stuf Oreos

Reeses Peanut Butter Cups

Just to name a few. I like chocolate, dark chocolate, anything really that has chocolate. Feel free to bring In N Out as well. Okay, that one was just to make sure you were paying attention. That would be one nasty burger after a 5 hour flight. But I would love anyone who could actually find a way to bring me a fresh one. That would be awesome.

Well, now that I am starving and all I want is an In N Out Burger, I am going to go get dinner started: low carb spaghetti with homemade sauce, veggies and garlic bread. Not too shabby, but it ain't no Double Double.


  1. You are going to go crazy! With Daniel they didn't want me to eat hardly any sugar so after he was born I ordered a mint chocolate chip shake and it was heaven!

  2. I am still working on my plan for In N Out for you. Keep ya posted....:)
