I'm late this week, got really busy and the time slipped away! I'm so close to 13 weeks, I'm gonna skip the 12 week pic. Baby can now open and close it's hands (which I got to see today!), it's eyes can clench, and it can make sucking movements. Baby is now over 2 inches long crown to rump, over three inches total (actually measured 7cm today!).
I had my endo appt in Savannah today. The dr. was kind enough to accept me even though he doesn't take Tricare normally, so that will be much easier than driving to Augusta all the time. He also thinks I'm not eating enough carbs. Grrr. He thinks my hypos can be resolved through diet. I asked him if I had to eat carbs to keep from going low, doesn't that mean I'm taking too much insulin? He hemmed and hawed and admitted while yes that was true, that he didn't like me fasting for so long and I need to make a point to eat breakfast. I think it's silly to eat if I'm not hungry. Baby is going to get what it needs either way. He BEGGED me to at LEAST eat a bedtime snack of 15g and he would prefer 3. He says that he doesn't approve of eating high carb and if I'm not pregnant, he doesn't care, I can eat LC if I want, but while pregnant I NEED more carbs. So I get to see the CDE/nutritionist on Wed. Fun times. I know exactly what she'll say. 45g per meal, 15-30g snacks blah blah. I've upped my carb intake to 100g to stay out of ketosis (and because of all the lows) and I think that should be plenty.
