here's a few things that have been happening lately:
-i am now in my third trimester and feel rather large. some of my maternity clothes are getting to be too small (never saw that coming) the shirt, for example, that i'm wearing in the last picture will now retire to my closet following the lovely boob comment from leah. and dare i say it? yes, josh is happy.
-yesterday i had my first doctor's appointment all alone and my first birthing class all alone. josh had his own doctor's appointment (a follow up for his accident) and was not feeling too well in the evening. (we both know that the true reason he stayed home is because he didn't want to have to see the birthing video) the doctor's visit went well. this time tristan was facing the ultrasound and you can totally see his face...nose, lips, eyes...it almost looked 3D! i was so excited to come home and pop in the video for josh. the birthing class was fun because we got to have a tour of the birthing area of the hospital and also learned a lot about labor. for the relaxation exercises where you're supposed to lean against your partner, i had to lean against a wall. ah well.
-last week i had to do the blood sugar test where you drink a bottle of sweet stuff and they test your blood. apparently the results came back slightly high, so i have to go back in again for a 3 hour test next week. it's all a big pain because i have to be on this strict diet for 3 days beforehand and then can't eat 12 hours before the test. my doctor told me that it's not for my well being, it's for the baby's, which makes it seem more worthwhile. but i am so not looking forward to it.
-oh yes and i am measuring larger than normal (like i didn't know that) which made my doctor guess that the baby will probably deliver at around 8 lbs. (but really, how do they know?)
-we picked up our crib on sunday as well as the changing table, swing, pack n play, bedding and i don't know what all else. we bought the crib for $15 (!!!!) from friends and the rest was given to us by rob and jessica. i honestly don't know what will be left on my target.com registry anymore. it seems that daily i'm taking more and more stuff off of it! i'm itching to get this computer desk over into the guest room so that we can set up the nursery. i know it's early, but right now we're tripping over all it in the living room, so it's a great excuse to put it all together.
-still working dreadfully hard and staying away from eye doctors at all costs. now i must leave for work because i need to stop by the grocery store first to get some milk. i left an entire jug out on the counter over night. i'm getting rather bothered by this pregnancy brain thing. that and the fact that i am spilling food on myself CONSTANTLY! josh jokes that i need to add some bibs for myself onto our registry.
