10 more weeks!!
I am thirty weeks pregnant with only 10 weeks left, just two months!!! Wow, we are so excited. My parents ordered us a crib and we got it delivered yesterday. So now all we have to do is put it together. Does anyone know how long this will take? I hear that it can take two hours to put a crib together. I surely hope not. After we put it together then we will have our first piece of furniture in the baby's room. I will post pictures once we put it together. Jason's mother is going to be making our bedding, which is sooooo cool. I ordered fabric and picked out the pattern for her to use. It should be ready by the time Sue gets here. How special!! Thank you Cheryl.
Two weeks ago I went to have my glucose test done to determine if I had gestational diabetes. I had to drink an orange soda type drink (not so bad) and then had to have my blood drawn one hour later. Several days later they called me to tell me that my results were in and that my blood sugar levels were high. What??!! OH NO I thought. The told me I had to go to a lab and have a more intensive test done. I would not be able to eat or drink anything the night before the test. This past Monday I went to the lab first thing in the morning. I had to drink a similar orange drink, this time not as cold and no fizz...equals yuck! The drew my blood and I was told to return in one hour to have my blood drawn again. Luckily I was allowed to leave the building and so I went up the street to Target. I began to feel queasy but knew I had to keep this stuff down or I would have to do this test again later. I returned an hour later and had my blood drawn again. I was told to return an hour later again and once more. So I had my blood drawn four times in three hours. Needlessly to say, I have bruises on the inside of both of my arms and I almost passed out on my way to meet Jason for lunch. I went to my doctor for my two week visit and they already had the results in. Doctor told me that everything was good and that my blood sugar levels were actually LOW....What?? Well no wonder I almost passed out when I left. Thank goodness I don't have to do that again.
