The cat's outta the bag!

Scott and I received wonderful news on 12/4/2008 - we're expecting our first baby! I'm due 8/14/09 and am incredibly excited to be pregnant. I very much look forward to the second trimester, to sharing a little bit of what it's like to be a pregnant Type 1 diabetic with a fantastic team of doctors and nurses who are truly on my side, and to learning as we go along.

So far, things have been A-OK. My bloodsugars are not unmanageable, I haven't had horrendous bouts of morning sickness (just the occasional nauseous moment (or day)), and I am not bone-deep exhausted all the time, though I am sometimes.

In preparation for pregnancy, and to help the process along, Scott and I had weekly acupuncture therapy. I attribute my feeling of mostly-normal-ness to this practice, and highly recommend it for anything from fertility treatment to diabetes management to arthritis, etc., as long as you find someone you trust.

I don't feel like I'm really starting to show yet, but some people (you know who you are) think I am. I'll leave it to you to decide:
