5 weeks

Things are going well so far.  Blood sugars are better, but still not where they need to be.  Got a call yesterday that my insurance approved the Dexcom (a continuous glucose monitor that should help a lot) so I should be getting that in a couple days.  Though a little tempting, I got through Christmas without going off the diet plan (no sweets for me!).  I'm a little concerned about the morning sickness (usually starts at 6 or 7 weeks for me). Hopefully I can stay on plan. Got some sugar free queasy drops, hopefully they will help.   Still feeling a lot of symptoms and my clothes are tight, though I think that's just water.  The midwife group was a big fat NO because of the diabetes, but they did refer me to an OB who does vbac's and she is on the Tricare approved list.   The only problem is getting a referral from my primary care doc who wants me to go to high risk OB.  I'm so excited, there are so many things out now that they didn't have with my last two.  I found a fetal doppler on Amazon to listen to the baby's heartbeat for only $25.  Can't wait to hear it.
