Re: Chat Thread ~ Jan 13th - 19th

My Dr. wasn't super thrilled with me declining the glucose test, but decided that she would be ok with it if I did a finger prick each time, which I'm ok with. My only risk is twins, and my glucose is always super good, so I'm not worried about that. Also supposed to get 4 hours of feet up/ lie down time everyday. Thankfully I have someone who started helping us last week, and it's going well so far.
We are painting as well. We painted the girl's room last weekend, and are going to paint their closet this as well as a wall downstairs. Well, I'm not so useful right now, so I will be mostly supervising Next week the rest of the unpainted main parts of the house will be painted by a pro. We have ceilings that are like 24' so there is no way we can do it, and I've lived with the ugly color long enough!
27 weeks tomorrow! Starting to get excited

No cell phones or computers allowed at our lab - how else is a girl supposed to keep occupied while sitting still for so long? lol
I am worried about that this time. If I drink a regular coke I get a headache fast. DH said it could be a sign I'm not processing the sugar well?! I can drink coke zero fine...

Ours here is three hours if you fail the one hour. :/ ugh

I understand.

I'm excited about this baby, but mostly I just want to be done worrying about DD's childcare during labor. That is what I'm fixated on.

The baby part seems sorta off in the peripheral.

Am tired of not being home and we have another week of being away. DH still thinks its funny to say he's gonna leave me here so I can have the baby in Texas. It's hard not to sound insulting to my family when he says that in front of them. Yes, having family around is awesome. But being in my home is better.

Sorry... I like my home, my bed, my groceries, my life. But everyone else seems to think that if DH is gone for even 6 weeks, I should prefer to live in someone else's house and rearrange my life to fit their schedule.

Anyways...

Me too. I'm fixated on DH finding a job!!! Not even thinking too much about baby yet except anxiety about being breech....
