Happy, happy weekend! Despite the fact that the baby now likes to push on my bladder in a way that brings on an indescribable amount of discomfort (especially when I try to go for a walk), I am in a very good mood. Besides, considering how lucky I’ve been throughout my pregnancy, a little bladder pressure is really nothing to complain about. Even if I did have to ask a Whole Foods employee to watch my cart so that I could run to the bathroom before finishing food shopping. Nope, not embarrassing at all.
Anyway, a few things that are keeping my spirits up: 1) I passed my glucose test! Thank you all for the nice notes and comments. My doctor was nice enough to call me the night my blood was drawn to give me the good news. Questionable PCOS take that;-) 2) I got to visit with a few of my favorite bloggers this week (Liz, Ashley, Joanne, Audra and even Kathryn!) 3) My sister got one of the jobs she was hoping for (though I’m not surprised at all!). Oh, and she is moving 15 minutes away from me in early September!!! 4) We got to see some amazing close-up shots of the baby’s face on Thursday via ultrasound. We aren’t doing a 3-D (they kind of freak me out), but you really can see what he is starting to look like. It makes me so much more excited to meet the baby in a few months. 5) My birthday is in less than a month and I’m actually not freaked out over turning 30. I’ll just miss being able to tell Matt how “old” he is.
In terms of my daily life, I’m still using my energy to get a lot of baking done. This coming week I should finish getting my baby registry together. I think that will be a big relief. Once that is done I’ll make a list of the items I think we need to have in advance for the first few days of parenthood. It’s all still a bit overwhelming, but we are getting there. We even found a pediatrician this past week that we both liked. The fact that his office has weekend hours pretty much sold me! Oh, and for any of you other soon-to-be or new moms, I highly recommend checking out Lindsay’s list of 100 relevant posts.

I didn’t realize you had PCOS (or questionable PCOS I guess). I’ve been fighting it for a while. Glad the glucose test had good results.
Yeah, long story but my OB told me that my no ovulating meant that I had it (I don’t necessarily agree). Either way, when she finally told me this it was right before I found out I was pregnant so I didn’t really have an opportunity to look into it.
Wish you were here so we could celebrate your glucose test with cake! And that 100 post round up is amazing! Miss you!
omigosh how exciting about your sister and the baby’s ultrasound and your glucose test! oodles of good news! and I’m sooo jealous of your blogger meet up!
Yay for all this good stuff!!!! SO happy for you about the glucose test. also, seeing you this week was the BEST. And I agree with weekend office hours…you don’t want to have to go an ER every time your kid gets sick on the weekend!
thanks so much for the link love!
i too am guilty of pinning that cinnamon roll frosting, looks SO delicious!
So glad to hear that your glucose test turned out okay! Here’s to a few more months of ice cream eating ;)
Thank you, Kathryn. Cheers to that!
