Whew, I’m so glad we don’t have a ton of plans here this weekend because I’m still recovering from last weekend and Tuesday night’s concert. I’ll blame the pregnancy but I sure do feel old with the super exhaustion. At least I’m still not as tired as I was throughout my first trimester!
Speaking of pregnancy, in case you missed it, I posted an update on Thursday. I kind of left out a few things… namely, the stress. Well, I don’t know if stress is the right word. More like a big feeling of being overwhelmed with all that has to get done in the next three months. I just read that you should have 600 diapers for the first month with a baby. For some reason, that one little piece of information put me into super-overwhelmed mode. I since have calmed down and reminded myself to take everything one step at a time, but wow is there a lot to do.
Also, I know I never gave you the update on the glucose test I was so nervous about. Well, it’s a long story, but I’m going to take the same test again this week. Luckily I’m still taking the 1-hour test (which was not nearly as bad as I thought it would be) and I think that the doctor is being ultra conservative. However, I’m still nervous, again! I’d say that I’ll cut back on carbs this week but who am I kidding? I am not good with restrictions, especially while pregnant.
Other than that, there is still a ton of baking happening in my kitchen. My goal is to have plenty of recipes ready for you while I’m on some sort of maternity leave! It’s a little weird doing all of this fall and holiday baking now, but kind of fun. I think Matt’s co-workers will probably be the most confused because they’ll be eating all sorts of out-of-season treats this summer. I also plan on getting some guest posts together from friends. If you have any other advice on prepping for life with the baby (work, mental, anything at all), I’m more than happy to hear it!
