My Little Sugar Baby

No, not my sister, but the little guy kicking and kicking as I write…

At the end of this week I will officially enter my third trimester. 

What the what?!!!       How did that happen so quickly?

Time has certainly flown by with this pregnancy but I guess not knowing for almost the first 3 months sped things along considerably! I had to go in for my 1 hour glucose screen today and boy did I forget how tasty that little concoction is! I know it is a necessary evil and all…but, ew!

I do love going in to the doctor’s office and hearing this little guys heartbeat every month, but I sure hate stepping up on that scale. I really loathe that monthly weight gain reminder! But, I am happy to say that I have only gained 7 pounds so far…but, I am just now hitting the stage where the baby’s going to be packing on some pounds! Hopefully I’ll be able to keep my total gain minimal!

This is the point where I have to start going in to the doctor’s office every 2 weeks too, so my busy life is about to get that much busier. We decided to go ahead and rent a storage unit to at least get out some of the boxes we’ve packed. We’ve got exactly 2 weeks from today to be out of this house and we still don’t have a closing date on the other house! Yikes! I’ve made it my daily mantra to just let this thing go and not stress about it. Five years ago I would have been flipping out, but right now I’ve just chosen to remain calm. So far, it’s working and I even have proof because my blood pressure was 120/70 today. (I’ve never had high blood pressure, but if I was going to, I thought today would be the day!)

Wow! 7 pounds so far? That's it? I gained like 7 pounds a month... Ugh! I hated the scale so much. :-)

I'm glad to hear that you've chosen to remain calm given all the upheaval in your life. Why does everything seem to happen all at once?
