Baby is the size of a squash

Body Changes: Waddling, it is a thing! I think I'm walking funny and looking funny and balance is getting harder. I'm also needing help just getting up in multiple situations. Hello humility, my new friend.
My 3 hour gestational diabetes test came back high, so I'm off for diabetic counseling next week. I knew it was coming, insulin resistance and gestational diabetes typically go hand-in-hand. I am seriously limiting my carbs and eating mostly eggs, meat, and veggies these days in hopes that I don't do anything to hurt the baby.
Sleeping: Aside from being woken up by kicks and a few bathroom trips, I've had a lot of great nights where I've slept 10 hours straight. I'm feeling lucky, and hope deep sleep can stick around until the end.
Dream of the week: Apparently I've read one too many Cecil the Lion news reports, because I had a dream I went to Rwanda with my sister and niece to go on a safari. We enjoyed all the animals, but learned pretty quickly my sister and I could understand what the lions were saying! One was Scar from The Lion King, and had the accent and all. The lions were all so rude, told crude jokes, and were demeaning to other animals and people. My little sister turned to me and was like, "Man lions are jerks!" We spent our time trying to shield our niece from their inappropriate-for-15-year-old jokes, and we watched the media swarm thinking none of them had any idea how much the lions were mocking them or threatening to kill and eat them. I kept thinking of Harry Potter with Parseltongue, and felt I was in some strange similar experience my entire dream. I must say, I'm going to miss these super weird, hilarious dreams that pregnancy has gifted me with.
Fitness: I'm still walking pretty much daily, and trying to do add more squats into my morning workouts. Hopefully that helps with labor like I've read, because it's time to admit that is going to happen!
Craving: I wouldn't say anything has been too strong this week, but I've loved eggs for breakfast, and I've wanted salad for lunch almost every day. Luckily these are diabetic-approved foods!
