Just got home from my GD class. Feels so much better having clear guidelines. I got my monitor — the Accu-chek Aviva with a multi-click lancet thingie — & learned how to use it. It’s actually not as bad as I thought it’d be… I was picturing those giant thumbtack-sized sharps that the doctor’s office used when I was a kid. Yeah, the clicker thingie is way better. And it all comes in a little purse-sized case that zips up all nice & neatly…

Based on what I now know, I think the scheduled eating may be one of the biggest adjustments. I’m supposed to eat every 2 to 2.5 hrs… told Bobby that my & Rose’s feeding schedules actually won’t be that different. I’m on the same feeding schedule as an infant. So yeah, that’s the GD update.

And today, an invitation arrived in the mail. An invitation for… wait for it…. MY BABY SHOWER. It’s perfect & lovely & I feel a little teary looking at it. I’m gonna have a baby shower. I really am. I wonder if this whole thing will ever just seem “normal”? I hope not… I don’t want to ever take this process for granted, or forget to be grateful. I don’t know why I’m being given this experience while other girls are still waiting. I don’t know why, but I’m so very thankful. I am.
