sugarcloud :  I’m doing ok too… She still hasn’t arrived. The Drs are keen to keep her going as long as possible so I have monitoring every few days. I’m booked for a c section next week though so only 8 days to go unless something happens sooner!

I’ve managed to stay diet controlled with a few high readings and the diabetic clinic said not to bother going back now! Which I guess is good?

I’m sorry you still have your uti, is it getting better at least?

Good luck with the scan!

sugarcloud :  hello! Just wanted to check on and see how you were doing?

My little one will be 4 weeks on Thursday, I can’t believe the time has gone so quickly! She’s putting on load of weight, and is super gorgeous! 

I’ve been eating a lot of cake! Might have to rein it back in a bit though!

sugarcloud :  yay!! Congratulations!!

That was a quick labour! And 4.1kg is a sturdy weight! My little one is just at 4.6kg now (12 weeks), she’s a bit of a slow gainer after the first few weeks, so we are keeping an eye on it- weekly weigh ins etc.

I’m so pleased for you! I already miss the teeny tiny newborn bit! We were comparing pictures yesterday and couldn’t believe the difference already.

I’ve gone a little bit crazy for sugar the past 3 months so really need to reel it in! I had a fasting glucose test and a hba1c test at 6 weeks that came back as normal and I think I took that as licence to eat everything! Definitely planning to start eating better now!
