How's everyone doing? I've been feeling so so so tired the past week! Decided to test my blood sugars as my brother is insulin dependent diabetic and my sister had gestational diabetes with all 3 of her pregnancies and got quite a high reading. Also had glucose in my wee at my last midwifes appointment so I think its looking highly likely I will have it. Have my test for it on the 23rd, not looking forward to that!
Also still feeling really sick and taking 5 tablets a day. Not fun at all but I'm so use to it now.
Trying to work out when to start my maternity leave and holiday. I have 21 days to take still. Can't decide if I should go early and use all the holiday or start maternity at the end of August and all holiday before. So hard to know what to do for the best! Just know I'm suffering a little now and work is a struggle :-(
Yes Alice, mines a fatty too!! Kicks are getting stronger and stronger now, love it!
Jonesy - Only seen the midwife twice too, next appointment is next week. If I do have it they try and make you control it with diet first and if that fails its tablets and then potentially insulin injections. I'm hoping I don't have it but looking likely I will.
Lea - I'm doing something similar, leaving 26/07 and taking holiday until 31/08 and then maternity will kick in. Basically means I will get paid something decent until the end of May and then June/July and August I will only get my car allowance and plan to do my keep in touch days then too.
