Parties, Birthdays and Thank Yous!
I have had a fun week! I just wanted to do some quick updates of all the things I’ve been doing lately! We have been busy with family stuff, my work office moved and I’ve been getting set up there, it’s been a fairly smooth transition since we’ve been working off the cloud mostly, pretty ‘plug-and-play’ so that’s great!
I have to say a big THANK YOU to Alina also. She got MiniM SO much awesome stuff that was on our list. It is so shocking to get gifts in the mail from people, I cannot believe the generosity, it is amazing. It makes me want to pay it forward in every way I can. Thank you so much, we will gt lots of good use out of your kindness!
A big happy birthday to Nater last weekend and my mom this Sunday (and aunt Zelda)!
MiniM and I had our appointment, we are on to an appointment every two weeks now. I took the one hour glucose test and failed it, by A LOT, I was supposed to be under 130 and I was at 185… I guess they don’t even re-test at 190, they just treat you for gestational diabetes. As it were I did get to re-test with a 3 hour glucose test, that turns out is a terrible test! The start by drawing blood, then I have 5 minutes to drink what is essentially soda pop concentrate and then they draw my blood every hour for three hours. For the five hours after drinking the crap I went form varying states of dry heaving (thankfully or I would have had to come back and do it again!), getting the shakes, breaking out in cold sweats and the sugar crash was awful! I think MiniM was having just as hard of a time with it as I was. I brought my laptop ad was trying to work but it’s pretty tough when you are not in control of your body. Uck it was a gross feeling. I am very happy to say I passed though! My blood-work, even though it was REALLY high at the one hour came back within the range in the three hour test so no specialists needed and less worries about huge babies to deliver. I’m pretty relieved to not have gestational diabetes. If I never have to take another test like that though that is ok with me! Other than that she is measuring just perfect, I am measuring at 33 cm and she is in her last growth spurt, I swear I am bigger every morning when I wake up! I feel gigantic and I still have 6-8 more weeks (I think she’ll be a little early 🙂 ). It’s pretty funny how at the beginning I was so scared of how it’s going to go, labor is terrifying… this far in the process I am so uncomfortable all the time, I can’t wait to get her out, I’m totally ready! 🙂
With that, here are some pictures, I hope everyone has a great week and happy Superbowl! 🙂
