So, I’ve been stressed. I am finally past the critical 12 week mark, but it’s important for me to not stress myself out, so that I can control my diabetes, my anxiety, my IBS and everything else. With being responsible for 2 positions at work, other work stuff that I’m having a really hard time with, my high risk pregnancy, university, and last but not least, my mom receiving her biposy results, which is the worst option possible – The mass on her liver is a 2nd cancer. Tomorrow she’s going for tests to determine if there are more tumors in her stomach, intestines, etc. Fingers crossed.

When I told my doctor that the reason I have having a hard time controling my blood sugars is because of all this, and started crying in his office, he wrote me a note for a 2 week medical leave from work. On one hand, I feel guilty, on the other hand, I’ve wanted to be a mother for so long, and this might be my only shot… I have to put my health first. Right?

  1. You absolutely are doing the right thing. Take a break, warm baths, and just relax. You need to put you and your bean first. You’ve waited so long for this. *hugs*

  2. This is the time to completely spoil yourself… Focus on the positives and kick that stress away by doing all the things u enjoy… Well all the healthy things u enjoy. Check out pregnancy yoga i found it helped me during my pregnancy. I just watched youtube videos and tried them at home… No complication. Cry when u need to cry, talk or write about ur stress… it’ll at least take the pressure off for a bit… Don’t keep it in. Do whatever u need …u and ur peanut is now ur priority… This is a time where everyone should be understanding… take advantage of it. I kinda miss that hehe

  3. Absolutely right!!! If I’ve learned anything this past year, we have to take care of ourselves first and be kinder and more compassionate with ourselves, and guilt is my WORST enemy!

  4. I am so sorry for the news about your mom. I hope that the follow-up tests have the best possible outcome!

    I think you are doing the absolute right thing in following your doctor’s advise and doing everything possible to keep yourself and the baby healthy!
