Loose change (26w5d)

14 Mar

A few updates for today…

-27 weeks (3rd trimester!) on Saturday. Bananas.

-Glucose fasting test this morning. Thank heavens that’s over. It wasn’t that bad, and yet it also sucked. The drink was clear, not orange, and tasted like Sprite (lemon-lime), but flat and syrupy instead of bubbly and refreshing. Results tomorrow, fingers crossed.

-Ultrasound went well, additional details and some new pictures are up over on the Turtle page. The bump actually looks smaller here than at 23 weeks. It’s got to be a little bigger because my stretch marks are out in full swing and I’ve gained about 5-7 lb.s since then, but it doesn’t really appear so.Here’s DH’s artistic interpretation of the bump pic:

-Nursery decoration is in full swing. We’re assembling the crib today. We’re going shopping for other furniture (namely a bookshelf and dresser) at Ikea this weekend. Hoping to have the room around 75% done in time for the baby shower.

-The baby shower! Is two weeks from Saturday. Family coming in from all over, friends coming in from all over, just going to be a low key affair at the house but I am so. excited. to celebrate this little life.

That’s all for now, folks. I know it’s pretty boring, but I kind of want to keep it that way!

    That’s great that the pregnancy is boring. Keep it that way!

    So glad things are progressing and are a tad boring- as they should be;)
    Enjoy your shower and treasure every moment of this time!

    Not a boring post at all! I especially got a kick out of your hubby’s drawing – so cute. And happy third trimester to the both of us!
