I'm scared, guys. I'm scared that I know nothing about motherhood. I'm scared that once baby girl is here, I won't know what to do or when to do it. I'm scared we aren't prepared with everything she needs. I'm scared about money once she does come. But one thing I'm not scared about (yet) is labor. I don't know why. Maybe it's because I know I'll be in good hands? Who knows. I'm weird. I know everything will be fine once she is here, it's just the anticipation of the unknown that freaks me out.
Oh and by the way, this whole gestational diabetes thing really sucks. I can't eat anything I want & I hate that. There are SO many carbs in everything I like. Basically I have been living off of turkey sandwiches & peanut butter toast. mmm... I must be doing something right though because every time I test my blood sugar, it's completely within the normal range. BUT, I don't feel any better. Like right now, I feel like I'm going to pass out. I'm really hot & dizzy. I get this feeling about 4x a day. It sucks.

Notice how my how is styled the same every. single. week? Well that's because I'm in a hair rut. It's at such a weird length that it looks bad when I wear it down & my roots are about 4" long. I'm getting it done next Wednesday, but I don't know what to do! I want something different. Blonder? Darker? Shorter? If you have any suggestions, I'd love to hear them :)
