It's About Time

It is 6:30 pm on my day off. I've had a great day. Played with makeup, went to a dr appointment, had lunch at Chipotle, and went to a movie. Almost all with Jared. It's been a great day for both of us. It's a good thing we have more days off coming up. I'm really excited about our week long NO WORK week in November. We're going to spend a few days at the coast in Newport. It'll be cold, but whateves. Alaska would have been cold too if we had been able to do that.

My baby's room is looking more and more like what it is intended for and less like a storage holding facility. My crib and changing table is a beautiful dark wood. Funny story that I wish I had pictures of: one day we didn't shut the door after being in there because one of the cats was still in there. A little bit later, Jared went to shut the door. We found Kara laying inside the crib and Jaeden lounging on top of the changing table. Cute, but not a good sign. My wall border is in my possession. In fact, I am staring at it now as it is on the desk in front of me. I haven't quite had the time to put it up yet. I have 4 day weekend next week. We'll likely do it then.

It took me a while, but I finally found a rocker/glider that I liked. Best of all, it was on sale. And out of stock. So now I have a rain check. They said they would call when it was in stock... they didn't know how long that would take.

The first two books that my sister-in-law wrote can now be purchased. We had a launch party for her last week. I'm glad that's over. Quite a bit of prep work involved. My job during the party was to take pictures. We bought a new digital camera that day and so I had some fun with it. Best feature: there isn't a 30 second wait in between pictures. I read a lot of reviews on different cameras and was shocked to be reading that 3 seconds between pictures was slow. I'm not sure what that makes my old camera. What's beyond slow?

Today at my appointment, they couldn't figure out if baby's head was down or up. Previously, she was head up. This time, they're not certain. Even finding the heartbeat didn't help much because it was pretty much close to my belly button which really means any way goes. No worries on that yet. But hopefully she is head down at my next appointment with Patricia. (Which is after my next two appointments which are with Susie, my other midwife.)

I also got the results of my gestational diabetes test. The only reason I took it was because my carb and sugar intake has been pretty high all throughout pregnancy. As I expected, I was in the high range. High enough to where I need to be more careful and diligent, but low enough that I don't have to take the 3 hour GD test. Sigh. I guess I shouldn't make cinnamon rolls too often unless I really use those as an incentive to NOT eat other things.

I still don't have my baby's 3D ultrasound scanned in due to not having a scanner that works with Vista or Windows 7. She's cute, of course. She kept her foot by her face most of the time. She wouldn't roll over so we couldn't get a full face picture, just her profile. It was pretty cool because the tech could cut away part of the picture to make her face the focal point. This was especially good because my placenta was over part of her face and they could just cut that away. She has a Laulusa nose.

Dinner is calling to me now so I bid thee farewell.
