Interlude:

31 weeks as of tomorrow!

Gestational diabetes continues to kick my ass. My insulin dosage has now been upped AGAIN (twice total) and I'm still only getting good morning numbers about half the time, which I guess is an improvement from none of the time, but still: what the fuck.

Also, having a strict diet and a very slim food budget means I'm basically eating the same three meals every day and it's starting to make me crazy. Today I cried about it. That's the stupidest thing to get upset over but the whole thing is just incredibly frustrating, especially on top of other frustrating things that I don't feel like getting into. OH WELL.

Also also: I found out at my last appointment that because of the diabetes, I'm going to be induced at 39 weeks!! Yikes!!!! I'm actually kind of relieved because one of the things I've been worrying about is like... going into labor on campus or having my water break in the middle of class or something. But being induced means we'll be able to schedule a day, and that means being more prepared, and I always like being more prepared for things!! Also ... I really don't know if they'll let me pick the day, but my original due date is September 30, and September 25 is approximately one week before that, so......... I might have already talked about this here, but September 25 is the day my mom died and is also the birthday of my dear, very beloved friend H whom I hadn't seen in years and then he was finally in town and when we met up I was complaining about period cramps except my period never showed up and I later realized those were implantation cramps, meaning: the night I saw him was literally the night I became pregnant. So I have been joking to him this whole time that he's the reason it happened, that the little egg floating around my uterus saw him and decided this was a good world to be born into. So, yes: September 25 would be an amazing day for Lentl to be born, and I don't know if it's possible but I'm definitely going to ask about it when the time comes.

Finally: this baby moves SO. MUCH. SO MUCH!!!





Things not related to pregnancy:

My dad invited me over and I could tell he Wanted To Talk so I was extremely anxious, but it turns out he had good news: he and his girlfriend (whom I like a lot) are getting married. :D :D :D

Took a small break from Elementary, but now I'm hooked on it again.

My big fic project is coming along very slowly, mostly because the time I could spend working on it is usually spent napping or playing a dumb game on my phone or watching Elementary or just lying in bed staring at the dog, etc.

I'm now done working, and it's about a month before I start going back to school, and that means I'm slowly but surely losing my fucking mind just like I do every summer when I have nothing to do and absolutely no disposable income to distract me from the fact that I have nothing to do. Eventually I'm gonna have to start going to the doctor twice a week and honestly I can't wait.




Ummmmmmmm I think that's it. It's been a rough couple of days but I continue to be mostly okay. I hope you are all also doing well. <3<3<3<3<3

Oh wow, talking about being induced! THINGS ARE REALLY HAPPENING AND QUICKLY. Good job taking care of yourself and lentl even though it's especially hard right now. <3<3<3
