Month 8,455 of Pregnancy.
It’s been very quiet here on my blog, and this is because my body and mind entirely are being slowly devoured by the baby.  I’m nine days away from my scheduled c-section (but past 38 weeks, so could go into labor on my own any time) and my body hasn’t ever been this pregnant… Read More

No matter what I’m attempting to do, it’s all mapping out this way at the moment: Week 37. Officially the most pregnant I’ve ever been. At least it’s not 834 degrees outside.This is every day. was first posted on August 15, 2016 at 9:19 am.  ©2013 “sixuntilme.com”…. Read More

Being a Rotten Patient.
Yesterday, I was a rotten patient. At this point in my previous pregnancy, I had already been in hospital on bedrest for two weeks, so this whole rolling around on the “outside” while a few days shy of 37 weeks pregnant is new to me.  The emotions I felt on bedrest were really volatile… Read More

The Vegetable Recipes That Didn’t Suck.
The battle remains uphill (couldn’t remember how to turn the stove on the other day, which is a testament to how scrambled my pregnant brain is becoming – add that to last week’s inability to use the gas pump on a car I’ve owned for over six years), but I’m still… Read More

That Clip, Though.
I’ve been using the t:slim pump for the better part of a year now, and over the last few months (here’s a handy disclosure that you should read for context on my relationship with Tandem), I’ve appreciated the new set of options that the t:slim has brought into my diabetes life…. Read More

Spring-Loaded Navel Gazing.

“Do You Like It?”

Enjoy the Silence. Or Not So Much.

Antenatal Moody Blues.
Back when we first talked about a second baby, Birdy was about three and it took us a few months to wrap our heads around the possibility of another kid.  But once we landed on “Let’s do it,” we assumed it would be a short process to conception.  We did not anticipate the wait… Read More

Captain’s Log: Week 32.
Captain’s Log, Day 224 I have been in this womb structure for over 32 weeks, and all is well.  In weeks past, I’ve allowed the creature they call “Mother” to dictate many of our decisions, but boredom and a diminishing return on leg room is giving me the desire to kick… Read More

ConnecT1D Retreat.
Until a few months ago, I didn’t know much about the peer-to-peer support and family connection accomplished by ConnecT1D.  It wasn’t until Susan Horst reached out to me to see if I was available to visit for their ConnecT1D retreat that I was thrown into their world of the… Read More

Plant-Based Faceplant.

Ten weeks left until the little man arrives, which means I’m in the third trimester and ready to fast forward through the summer.  FAST.  FORWAAAAAAAAARD!! Swelling.  So far, so good.  I don’t have any swelling to speak of, which is a far cry from my first pregnancy, when I was in… Read More

Free Shower.
Internet LOLZ suggest I title this post “Free Shower Be Like …” but I refuse to do that.  My dad, and every English teacher I’ve ever had, would throw things at my head. Instead, I’ll just assert that diabetes-device free showers are totally akin to this: AKA the… Read More

Reimbursements.

Fifteen Minutes, Fifteen Grams.
I just needed fifteen minutes, after fifteen grams of carbs. “I can’t go with you, because I need to eat something else and wait for my blood sugar to come up.  You guys can go without me and come right back, if you want?” The sentences sounded soft and measured.  Sure, go for… Read More

First Month of My Insulin Pump Break
A month ago, I decided to step away from my Medtronic insulin pump.  This was long overdue, a needed change that I needed to revisit in order to get my diabetes back in line. Yet, I had been putting this off and it wasn’t until Medtronic’s business decision to screw with patient choice and… Read More

Blame the Hormones.
I’m still angry that the UHC/Medtronic issue hasn’t been resolved.  There is/was a ton of discussion about how this is not a decision that takes patient needs and preferences into account but instead seems to cater to what’s best for business needs. “Resolved” would… Read More
