Ta Da! We now have Pink Eye

May 19, 2010

I swear….the hits just keep coming.

After getting over last week’s virus, Morgan woke up this morning with green boogies sewing one of his eyes shut.  Joy!

I feel so sorry for my little man. He’s had a horrendous couple of weeks with the fever from hell and now this.  I know that daycare can at times be a cess pit for germs…but honestly the timing sort of stinks.

Jeremy is working tomorrow and I have 2 doctors appts. I  missed my ob appt last week because Morgan was sick then as well, so I am going to have to haul him to the hospital and hope against hope that Daddy can keep him occupied while I am hooked up to the monitors because they do not allow children in the diagnostics clinic.

My ob is a bit more flexible…but it still isn’t fun to take your nearly 3 year old to your appointments!  However, at only 2 weeks left to go,  I doubt that these appointments are optional. 

I’ve been controlling my blood sugar much better than in the first week–I think 3 weeks is pretty good for a learning curve! Mornings are still rough as I am still getting sick and don’t always want protein first thing in the morning.

I will post some of my successful meals since I’ve been getting a lot of hits on Gestational Diabetes.

  • Egg Beaters scrambled with 1 slice cheddar cheese and 1 pc toast.
  • English muffin (whole grain) with egg beaters/cheese and 1/2 c fruit
  • Ezeikiel Bread (sprouted grain bread with high fiber) with peanut butter

Ask me what I am craving these days?? A big honking 5 oz bakery bagel slathered in cream cheese….. or a stack of pumpkin pancakes with maple syrup…..oh why do we always want what we cannot have  😉

Lunch and Dinner are much easier for me– some sort of lean protein with veggies and the occasional carb (1/2 to 1 cup serving).  I miss waffle fries at Chik Filet like you would not believe!  But have sort of  found my replacement in broiled zucchini spears dipped in blue cheese dressing.  YES, I know that Blue Cheese is on the no-no list but have you ever heard of a woman beating her head against a rock screaming “If only I’d avoided the blue cheese!!”

BTW–I have to say that I am proud of Jeremy for adhering to Meatless Monday even while at the hospital this week! He told me that he ate butternut squash ravioli and I might have had a tear in my eye. That’s MY MAN!
