Sunday 28 February – Day 59
A quiet Sunday at home. Finally decided to reveal on social media that I am pregnant, due in August. It has been a tough first trimester…it wasn’t planned and thought I was going through early menopause…so I first had to get my head around it as I was convinced I wouldn’t have any more. I am now having to check my blood glucose levels 4 times a day…..then I have had major bleeds and really bad back pain in the mornings. It finally all seems to have eased off and I am in a happier place. I was initially going to keep quiet as there are lots of risks due to my age and diabetes and I am being monitored closely already…but if all goes well I don’t want the child to think I didn’t care when I wrote about my pregnancy with Bee almost from day 1 and don’t even mention this one. Plus it was hard not to write about in my project 365 and it is a major part of my life! I have finally written about my first trimester: Diabetic and Pregnant.
Monday 1st March– Day 60
Hubby went and got Krispy Kreme doughnuts as a treat for the family. I wasn’t impressed as due to my diabetes and having to monitor 4 times a day it is not ideal…as I really don’t want to end up on insulin which the diabetic MW said was highly likely this time round as I am actually starting off the pregnancy diabetic and on meds. I did sneak in half a doughnut once I saw my levels were still fairly low after dinner.
Tuesday 2nd March – Day 61
Actually work up with barely any back pain today so used the opportunity to give the kitchen and the cooker a clean. Got the eldest to help out as she didn’t seem to have many online classes today.
Wednesday 3rd March– Day 62
Caught up with some blog stuff and got a giveaway live on instagram for some Eid cards I have. Have been sent them over the years to review and have built up a collection. I don’t often send out cards so decided to offer them up as a giveaway so others can make use of them.
Thursday 4th March – Day 63
No online classes for Bee today as the school are getting ready for the kids on Monday. Decided we couldn’t be bothered to do the tasks set (World Book Day related) and just chilled. Rosie has been off her food the last couple of days which is not like her at all. She hasn’t been coming begging for food in the mornings or when we have our food which had me concerned. Also it seemed like she was working hard to breathe at times. I decided it was time to go to the vet. I phoned and they had a free appointment in 15 mins and as it was just down the road I took it. The vet couldn’t find anything physically wrong with her. He checked her heart rate and breathing and all fine, no lumps found and she was alert. He said there might be an issue with fur balls and recommended a gel and a high fibre food. But if things don’t improve they can do blood tests to investigate further. Also joined in with a World Book Day collab on instagram with some other bloggers and I shared some books for 8-12 year olds.
Friday 5th March– Day 64
Another quiet day. I decided to sort out a wall in the bedroom which I had half taken the wallpaper off months back but never then re wallpaper. Had to do it before I got too big and couldn’t manage it. Was just a small section of the wall and the nephew helped – I can’t risk doing too much alone due to the previous bleeds and still some minor back pain. In the evening Bee played with her K’nex. We were sent it to review some time ago and she still loves playing with it.
Saturday 6th March – Day 65
Not much happening today. Hubby had an issue with his car last night so he was up early to get it sorted. Then frankly just screen time today. The letter re the Census arrived so completed that online. After I submitted it I realised it was meant to be completed on the 21st! Oops! The eldest made some pizza wheels….they didn’t look as they should but tasted good!

Big congratulations to you about the baby. I am glad you are feeling a bit better now.
Ugh! That is rubbish that your hubby bought doughnuts. I’m glad you got to enjoy half though.
Those Eid cards look fab.
Poor Rosie. I hope she perks up soon.
I was meant to put the Census letter somewhere safe but I think ours has been thrown out. Oops. I need to get that sorted. x

Rosie is still not eating as much as she normally does
Congratulations. It looks like Bee was besides herself.
We still haven’t received our census information. I’m going to have to request an access code, let our lodgers know they need to do their own as they’re classed as a separate household as we don’t share facilities, and check the in laws have requested a code too as I don’t think they’ve had theirs either.
She is so excited!
Congratulations! I hope all the unpleasant pregnancy symptoms will go away. Also, I hope Rosie is better too, it can be scary to see pets feeling unwell.
Thank you. Most have gone now.

Oh what lovely news! Congratulations and glad that you are feeling better now too. What a lovely photo of Bee to announce that she is going to be a big sister too. Sorry to hear that Rosie has been off her food – hope she is better now. #project365
She’s still a bit off her food
Masha Allah, mabrook sister. May Allah (SWT) bless you.
Ameen JazakAllah Khair
So pleased for you, I hope you are keeping well and continue to do so over the months ahead. Also hope that Rosie is feeling more like herself this week #365
She is still not eating as much as she normally does
Oh congratulations what lovely news, sorry to hear the first trimester was rough hope the rest of the pregnancy is kind to you. I had gestational diabetes with my youngest and can still remember not being able to eat the things I craved. So feel for you on the doughnuts.

Thank you. Yes it is tough not being able to eat what you want.
Congratulations on the surprise pregnancy hope all goes well with the diabetes and you can get it under control yourself without the need for insulin, you can still revert type 2, but not type 1. Sorry to hear about Rosie also, must be hard.
Thank you. It is hard
Congratulations! I think I saw your news over on insta. I didn’t tell anyone on social I was pregnant with Little E until I was about 20 weeks. I’m sorry to read you have been so poorly, I’m glad you are feeling better now. I have had the Census letter but I haven’t even looked at it yet. I hope Rosie is OK #365

I am glad that I am feeling better know…was so tough initially
Congratulations, such lovely news although sorry to hear its not all plain sailing. I had gestational diabetes with 3 of mine and on insulin from 12 weeks. It’s not ideal, but at least it keeps you and the baby safe
Yes I got GD last time but managed to escape the insulin then.
Congratulations on your lovely news! How exciting. Your husband is naughty bringing temptation your way! But they are such nice donuts I wouldn’t be able to resist buying them either. I hope Rosie is feeling better by now and back to eating again.

I saw your happy news on Twitter. How wonderful! Congratulations again! I understand why you were reluctant to talk about it. Wishing the rest of your pregnancy to go smoothly.
Poor Rosie, hope she perks up. The donuts look very tempting. We received the census letter with the code, but I haven’t looked at it properly yet.
The pregnancy announcement pics looks so nice… loved the Eid cards bunch.. wish I could win them all hehe.. hope you have an easy rest of the pregnancy God bless.
