As Salam Alikum Readers
I haven’t been posting much and it’s been due to unexpected health issues,
The last post I did was about having gestational diabetes which is a huge pain in the butt to manage I have had to cut out almost all breads , pastas , potatoes and other starches , count my carbohydrates which is a huge pain in the butt, give myself insulin injections four times a day and poke my fingers anywhere from 4/8 times a day depending on how I was feeling .
In January I went to Morocco and got sick with the Moroccan flu it had me down for all of January and half of February there really wasn’t any medications I could safely take but thankfully I had enough sense to bring a big bottle of powdered Gatorade mix which helped a lot .
Middle of February I developed cholostasis which is a liver issue that pregnant women can get it causes unbearable itching to the mother all over hands, feet , whole body doctors gave medications but they don’t seem to be helping and since I developed cholostasis I have had to go in twice a week for nst monitoring so they can check baby girl out, during the nst testing she likes to go to sleep so they have to put a loud buzzer thing on my belly to wake her up.
Doctors have found that baby girl isn’t gaining weigh like she should be she is small last time they did growth ultrasound they said she might be 4 pound 15 ounces but she could weigh less.
My heart issues have been acting up and making it hard for me to do much of anything I’m always exhausted and short of breath .
Because of all these issues the doctors have decided to do a caesarean on the 27th of April .
I will post another update when I can .
