As most of you know I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes a few months ago
it has been.. a learning experience
good side of it? I have not gained much weight so hopefully I can fit into that Banana Republic I bought for some reason last month

well... later in the pregnancy (I am 38 weeks)
blood sugars CAN go crazy
which equals concern from doctors
which equals more monitoring
and long story short
Baby Olsen will be here no later than May 10th (as opposed to the may 17th due date)
so says the DR

lots of scary talk with words like "still born", "low heart beats", "C section"
but I feel like this little boy is just fine and will make his way into our family, 
and hopefully not too big!
 he was only 6 pounds a week ago, he can't gain too much weight in three weeks

So I am trying to get last minute stuff in, but all I want to do is sleep.
so welcome baby olsen to a disorganized house, with no food in the fridge and a mom who has creepy toenails and horrible hair. 
we are happy to have you here either way

I am doing you a favor


Well, I think I am going to take a blog break until the babe is born
I am just too cranky
trust me, I am doing you a favor
all the stares, 
comments,  oh the comments!
"sorry Lauren you are in the 1% of pregnant women who have this problem" comment from drs, 
and the unsympathetic "been there done that" moms (hormones are raging)
it's getting to me

so it will be me and netflix
Crystal Lite and Peanut Butter & Jelly on a tortilla until may 8th (ish)
