Glucose schmoocose

Well I had my 27 week doctors appointment today with the glucose tolerance test. I failed, but just barely. If I have to go through all that bloodwork I would have liked to fail a little bit better. I guess your glucose level can be up to 141 and mine was 144. So be thinking of me next Thursday when I have to sit through 3 hours of bloodwork. The rest of my appointment went well so I'm happy about that. Krack babys heartbeat was 148 and she kicked through the whole thing. Since I'm entering my last trimester I know go to the doctor every 2 weeks. Its kind of exciting to be talking about labor signs now and if she was born right now she would have a 90% survival rate. I rather like those odds!

I will leave you know with some before pictures of the nursery. This is my project for this weekend. As you can see I started taping the trim off. Tonight I hope to pick up the paint and possibly start painting. We have a very busy weekend but my goal is to have it painted with the crib set up by Monday come hell or high water as my mother says.

As most of you know when you are pregnant certain things just slip your mind. Today I did two very dumb things.

I had to change my clothes at work because I decided to wear a dress this morning and forgot I had a breast feeding class tonight that started at 6 (thanks Bryan for bringing me a change of clothes). So I was in the bathroom and had gotten out of my dress and into my shirt. Before I put my pants on I decided I should go to the bathroom. I sat on the toilet and thought huh, this is weird. Luckily I figured out that I had forgotten to pull my underwear down. At least I didn't start to go before I figured that out.

Every night I take my prenatal vitamins before I go to bed. Hildee also gets her pill for incontinence at this time. No, I didn't take the dogs pills but if Hildee is pregnant or lactating she should be good on her vitamins for a day!

Preggo Feet

Robin and I thought it would be kind of neat to take a picture of our swollen feet last Saturday while we were at a friends cottage. The picture doesn't really capture the worst of my feet but poor Robin, I feel as though there is no helping her. SheVB must come out soon. Please take notice to Robin's right leg. Yes, those are her finger prints indented into her leg.

Nothing has been new with Krack baby. She has been moving like crazy though. Our next appointment is on the 28th and I will have to take my glucose tolerance test. Here's hoping I pass!

I had the pleasure of watching Rain almost all day today. My sister in law's dog was having puppies so I decided it would be nice to take care of Rain while all the chaos was going on. By the time we made it to the pool it was a little cloudy but still very warm. I didn't have a swim suit so it was diaper only for this girl. Needless to say the diaper got just a little soggy!!
