M.I.A. for Two Months—for a good reason

I can't believe 2 months flew by! I've been going through morning sickness and that's been keeping me on the couch or bed for the most part. What, you say?!? Yes, I'm 13 weeks pregnant! That's the great news, but the not so good news is that I'm also diabetic. This is what I've learned:

1. I am in control of my diabetes and diabetes doesn't control my pregnancy.

2. I'm not alone being a diabetic expecting mother:

a. I've got a great medical team on my side to help know what I should be doing (because I'm clueless enough as it is): my OB/GYN (Dr Hanna's great!), doctors who specialize in high-risk pregnancies, and the nurses and staff at the Diabetes In Pregnancy program at Roosevelt Hospital, NY.

b. I've got a great support team who all over the country: my husband, my family in California, and good friends from coast to coast.

Now that I'm almost over my 1st trimester, and got the 2nd and 3rd to look forward to. Most importantly, my baby's healthy (see ultrasound pic below)!
