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?

Water Balloons

When my kids told me they didn't know what to do with themselves yesterday I suggested they go outside and play with the water balloons....
