Hey everyone! This week has had a lot of ups and downs for me. First the downer stuff:
I fell off my bike. My bike tire got stuck in a subway track and hit my head on the pavement (got a lovely goose egg!), really bruised my hip and hurt my wrist. Thank the lord that baby is fine! I didn't land on my tummy at all but of course I was still freaking out. I went home and immediately doppler-ed and felt for kicks. Luckily h/b and movement has been excellent. I am now thinking it is time to retire the bicycle. But I'm having a REALLY hard time with that. It is my only mode of transportation around the city, including to work! I mean, I could take the bus or subway...but it is not direct or convenient at all! I could walk to work but it will take a LOOOONGG time and if Iwant to go to the gym after work that will be like an extra hour of walking to get there and home! We have a car but driving in the city sucks. There is no parking at my work, if you are lucky you can get a spot on the street and pay. So driving is a really crappy option too. Ugh....
I had to do my Gestational Diabetes test today and I friggin' hated it! That orange crap left me wanting to puke my brains out. I managed to hold it in for the hour and then had a spontaneous mini-barf of whatever was left of that orange crap.
I started my first course of my Master's of Math degree that I am doing part-time online. It had me a bit overwhelmed this past week.
I hate getting up early. Work(ie. highschool ) starts WAY too early!!!!
I have a new pregnancy symptom: I permanetely feel like I have to poo. Pressure on the butt, BIG TIME! Baby must be pressing there. It sucks.
Gross new/but kind of cool pregnancy symptom: My nipples are leaking fluid ( a really little bit)! I noticed they looked like there was dried snot (yuck!) on them a few days ago, I picked it off and then squeezed a bit and a drop of clear fluid came out! OB said this was good...seems weird to me!
I'm 27 weeks!
Welcome to 3rd trimester!
I book an u/s for 2 weeks to see if my placenta moved and also hopefully get another peak at gender to reassure us it is a girl before we buy too much stuff!
We bought a new leather couch and chair and book shelf! All part of getting ready for baby!
Mother-in-law is going to buy our STROLLER! Holy generous! We have decided on the Uppababy Vista!
My shower is booked for Nov 6th!
Maternity photos will be the week of Nov 13th! Can't wait for these! And we are getting a package where we get a newborn session as well! Woo hoo!
Ok, gotta run! Lots of love to all the bloggies! Some of the blogs I read have AMAZING things happening! Sassy Infertile Lady got her adopted baby boy yesterday! So beautiful! Steph from Baby Blakely is on the verge of giving birth! And Egg saw 2 beautiful babies on her 3D u/s!
