Where Have I Been????

Hey guys! I honestly have no idea where to start with this post. It has been way too long since my last Vlog/Blog update and I'm really sorry. I'm totally bummed at myself for not keeping up. I also haven't done anything on my Beauty channel either :( I am coming up on my 30 Week of this pregnancy!!! Where did the time go?? Well, let me start off by saying a big reason why I haven't vlogged is because I got some bad news on my 1 hour Glucose test so I had to go to the 3 hour one. My doctor was totally freaking me out and I was on my way to a little family getaway when I got the call, so it completely ruined my weekend. I scored 197 on my first test. The norm should be under around 135, so I was REALLY high. My doctor said there was a 75% chance that I had Gestational Diabetes and was totally convinced that I did. I got SO scared. Actually my first thought was shame. I felt like I did something wrong or like I was in trouble! My mind started racing because I didn't know anything about GD nor did I know anyone who had it. Everyone was telling me it's common, but I was still freaked out. I ended up doing the 3 hour test and PASSED! My little body just takes longer to metabolize that much sugar than normal people I guess. I was really relieved, but I still had a bad feeling inside that really made me depressed. So, that was only a couple weeks ago.

Before that I had lost my video camera cord so I couldn't charge my camera to film. I also didn't blog because I kept thinking I would find it and just do the Vlog...a month later and still no videos!! I was starting to feel really guilty and so behind on a lot of things in my life. My daughter started Kindergarten this year, so I'm still trying to get used to the whole pick up/drop off thing and also having my 3 year old at home with me. I don't do well with change, so it's taken me some time to get into the groove. The holidays were also SO hectic!! I think I have a million excuses, but the bottom line is I'm starting here and now with this blog post...

My body has changed so much since I last filmed!! We also decided on a first name for our baby boy!! It will be Maikah. I know the spelling is a little crazy, but that's just kind of how we roll :) I love the name and have loved it for so long. Baby is kicking like crazy and I almost can't wait for him to grow more so he has less room to sock me from the inside. Sleeping is harder as my hips go numb so often that I am constantly switching sides and waking myself up every couple hours. I also still have a horrible sinus issue, bleh.

On a lighter note, I've gotten a lot of cute things for baby and more Maternity clothes to show you! I'm not sure if I will do the fashion video on my Vlog or on my Beauty channel, but I'll keep you posted. I'm going to stop because I think I can go on forever filling you guys in, but I pretty much covered what I wanted to say and just want to move forward! Oh and BTW we adopted a baby kitten that is attacking my fingers right now as I type so it's making it really hard lol.
I hope you are all doing really well! I'm on my Facebook page all the time and I'll be posting any new Vlogs over there so come say hi! If you subscribe to my Vlog channel then it will automatically email you the link :) I'm HapamandaMama over on YouTube.
