Moving, baby, sciatica

I've said before that I'm horrible at keeping up with this blog. Oops! Again, I'm trying to do more with it but I've been so sleepy! We're currently in the process of packing and moving from Killeen to Copperas Cove by the end of this month all while Joe works and I go to school. *sigh* It's wearing us both out. I'm really excited to get to spend the holidays (with Joe for the 2nd year in a row, whoop!) in our new house. =) I'll have pictures as soon as we can find our camera charger. Haha.

Back in July we found out I was pregnant (for anyone who didn't already know) and as far as we know I'm due March 28. =) As of today I'm 12 weeks along. =) It's been a very rough time these past 3 months. I've been having evening sickness which only sucks b/c I get sick after we eat dinner and b/c I sleep on my stomach and doing that makes me sick too. *sigh* The sickness has gotten better (though today was rough), I still have to get up a lot to pee and I feel constantly hungry. =( Joe is slowly getting use to my mood swings (which happen more times than not) but I was told soon those will go away and I'll feel normal again. Haha.

Along with becoming pregnant I've also developed sciatica. It started out with just a pain in my lower back and got gradually worse. I went to the doctor (not the dr I usually see though) to find out what I can do about this b/c some days it hurts to walk, sit, stand, or anything else I try to do. Even on days it doesn't bother me at all I have to be careful b/c bending over to pick something up with aggravate it. =( So for this move I've been all of no help at all seeing as I can't lift anything or bend over to put anything in a box. =( The doctor I saw said that there's nothing they can do and that if it gets worse they will have to put me in a wheelchair for the rest of my pregnancy and for the first few months after I give birth OR they can put me on crutches (pregnant and on crutches seems way too difficult). I'm getting a 2nd opinion when I go to my next appointment on Monday. I've been told by different people that they've had this and there are other things that can be done besides throwing me into a wheelchair.

That's all that's really new with us (or mostly me rather). I did get some really good news today from my bff and that has pretty much made my day. =) Super excited for her. Well, that's all I got for right now! If anyone who isn't on my Facebook friends list reads this add me on Facebook and follow me on Pinterest! I'll get some buttons up for those!

Type 2 Diabetes

My last post stated that I "have" type 2 diabetes. Joe and I don't believe that's true so we went out and bought a meter to test my blood everyday. The past few days I slipped up and didn't take it (oops!) but I had taken it every morning from May 17 to May 27. I figured I'd share my glucose levels with everyone and get some input on if you think I've got type 2 diabetes or not. I'll add in the days to this blog when I take my glucose level in the morning.

May 17..........96 mg/dl
May 18..........90 mg/dl
May 19..........109 mg/dl
May 20..........86 mg/dl
May 21..........107 mg/dl
May 22..........127 mg/dl
May 23..........106 mg/dl
May 24..........104 mg/dl
May 25..........115 mg/dl
May 26..........113 mg/dl
May 27..........100 mg/dl
May 31..........113 mg/dl

I know some are kinda high (like the 127!) but those days I didn't fast for 12 hours. Some I might have been fasting for 5 or 6 hours. Since the 21st, it's been in the 100's but still, I don't think it's type 2 diabetes high! Oh well, I'm not the doctor.

I suck at keeping up blogs....

I really wanted to keep up with this since moving to Texas but sadly I don't think of this blog much anymore.

I've really got nothing to talk about seeing as nothing much has really happened here lately but here's an update on the things that have been going on!

Back in February (I think?) Joe made his E5. =) He's going to the promotion board in July for his E6. Whoop! He's been busy with work and the whatnot. His days off he plays video games and catches up on sleep.

As for me, I'm starting school again on June 4 (just a week away!) and I'm super excited. Other than that I've just been working and reading. Kind of a boring life but oh well.

Oh! Not that I believe anyone honestly reads this or cares but I was recently diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. The temp doctor I have right now wouldn't listen to me when I told her that my previous doctor had me eat something sugary before getting my blood glucose test done so I could be put in for lapband surgery. She stopped anything Joe or myself had to say and pounded it into our heads that I'm now diabetic. I would think that if I were diabetic I would have my sugar levels rise and fall pretty dramatically seeing as I don't watch what I eat (I'm very guilty of that and I DO need to change that so I can feel better about myself). I literally drink soda all day long (another thing I REALLY need to stop), and eat handfuls of candy throughout the day if I feel like having something sweet. I make a very yummy coca cola cake that is very, very, VERY rich chocolate. I'm sure if I had diabetes, that cake alone would send me into a diabetic coma. So I'm waiting for my new doctor to come in (no clue when that'll be) and I'm going to go in after I've been fasting for 12 hours, and get a new glucose test done. Also, I've decided I'm going to attempt to lose weight the "healthy" way. It's not worked for me in the past and I've injured myself in the past doing it this way but I'm going to try. My mom has offered to pay for weight watchers if I decide to do it but I don't know. I'm a very picky eater and I'm not sure how it all would fit in with me going to work and school. Also, I don't want to practically starve Joe while I'm trying to do better. I know I'm making up excuses but after failing before and injuring myself while doing it, I don't see this working out again. =\

Religion seems to have a way of making people abandon logic." -Amanda Baxter

Religion is a touchy subject for a lot of people. I don't care what people believe in and I don't judge them based on what they believe so why is it so hard for people to not judge me and call me an idiot b/c I don't believe in a "higher power?" I've never told anyone they're an idiot for what they believe and I expect the same respect but b/c I'm an atheist, I get shunned. It amazes me that when I meet someone and we get along great they instantly hate me b/c of my views on religion. I don't hide being an atheist, and I don't talk about it. I'm not a fan of religion so I avoid talking about it. Besides, I'm a nice person (until you've pissed me off....) and being an atheist doesn't make me a dickhead, an idiot, a soulless creature, an asshole, a bitch (don't get me wrong, at times, I am a bitch but being an atheist didn't make me that way), and ignorant. I don't call anyone any of those because they believe in something they've never seen. I personally think that's insane but I'm not going to tell someone just b/c they believe in something they're insane. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions. EVERYONE. Not just people who believe in a higher power. So please, don't judge me based on my views of religion, judge me based off how I act towards you. If you keep telling me I'm wrong in my views, I'll be sure to become the dickhead, soulless creature, asshole, bitch you've been calling me.

Besides, South Park has spread the truth on which religion is "right." The Mormons, they got it right. So either become a Mormon or stfu!

I need to try new foods!!

I'm thinking I might need an intervention, I've become way too addicted to my crock pot and get way too excited when I get to cook dinner with it! Haha. I'd like to think it's helping me learn how to cook but really it's doing all the work for me after I throw everything into it. I need more recipes that possibly doesn't involve the crock pot. Anyone want to share some yummy ones with me? I'm a very, very, VERY picky eater (worse than a 2 year old) so if you share a recipe with me please don't get offended if I pass on it or if I decide to make it but take out somethings b/c I don't like it like onions. And if it doesn't involve chicken, that would be great. As much as I could eat chicken every day for the rest of my life, Joe is getting quite tired of it. I've been trying very hard to find new recipes but either they don't seem appitizing or they involve chicken. Haha. If anyone is willing to share a yummy recipe with me I would love you forever. =)
