Any Day Now

Our baby can come any day now. I think it will be sometime this week then again I don't think she will ever be born :D Last week we picked our pediatrictian. My husband is allergic to peanuts and I have celiac so I wanted a dr. that is familar with both. She said peanut allergies are not genetic. That was good to hear. He is very allergic and it is so scary. I know gluten is bad for me but it's not going to kill me if I eat it. I hope our daughter will not develop any of our problems.It is really hot here I say it's too hot to eat. I lost my appetite last week I had to force myself to eat. The past few days it came back some. I get hungry and eat. Before I got pregnant I ate so healthy. But I have been nauseated pretty much the whole 9 months and eating has been such a challenge. Although it is hard to have celiac I think it made me eat healthier than if I didn't have it. But I have not eaten as healthy as I would have like to. But I did end up gaining the right amount of weight and the baby looks healthy. That is what counts!

New To This

I have never done this before so I hope I am doing it right. I have been gluten-free since Janurary of 04 and I am beginning to become tired of this whole thing. I am 8 months pregnant right now I am actually due in 3 weeks so that probably has something to do with being tired of being gluten-free. I became really swollen and my dr. told me to watch my salt and sugar intake. I just wanted to cry because I feel like I can't eat anything some days. I usually don't have a problem eating gluten-free in fact in never has really bothered me. At first it was hard but I felt so much better. Now I am just tired and I want to be able to eat like a regular person. I want to go to a restarunt and pick something of the menu that looks good to me not something that that looks like it would be gluten-free. I don't want to have to worry about my baby becoming celiac and all that goes with that either. I am hoping this is just a phase and I will be back to my regular self soon. Being pregnant is harder than I expected. This last month is becoming harder and harder each day. It is 4am now and I can't sleep, not that I would be sleeping if I had a baby but maybe I would feel better.
