I haven't mentioned this yet & really to be honest, it hadn't hit me just yet-but this new month of October could very well be the last month we are a family of three. The first month of our tiniest little boy's life. The VERY month we get to meet him!! So with that sweet thought, October...I am <<even more so than normal>> so very excited to welcome you:)
Sneak peek at our little loft dinette-the perfect place for coffee, chalk, & Cam's daily picked flowers;)We rang in the first day of October with a special breakfast brought to you by the very healthy & nutritious Krispy Kreme //RED// fresh & hot light. I conned my mom into taking an early morning spin to grab a dozen of the special monster edition donuts simply because my Cam...he is monster crazy & so very excited for Halloween. The look on his face when we opened the box was priceless. I swear, he has to be at the funnest. age. ever.
I didn't get to see my two regular doctors this week-but a random midwife that I hadn't ever met before. She did inform me that they would begin checking to see if I have started dilating at my appointment next week. Wow! It's that close to go-time I guess!
Also, for whatever reason-my one hour blood sugar test came back slightly elevated from last week in which I received a call before my appointment suggesting I would need to schedule a 3 HOUR TEST for next week <insert nausea & dread here>. *We were about 10 weeks late with this test d/t the cervix scare in the first place...
I had already planned to admit my half & half tea consumption & accidental peppermint before the test & all but beg them to reconsider as the same scenario happened when I was pregnant with Cam <<& let's just be real-a 35 week pregnant girl on bed rest would not be a fun patient while sitting in the waiting room for 3 hours while downing two more of those nasty sugar drinks>>...but before I could even begin-the midwife told me that my doctor didn't want me to have to do that. Instead, he simply wanted me to monitor it at home this week just in case & report back Thursday. God bless that man! He just gets better in my book everyday...
Aside from all that boring OBG talk, the rest of the weekend was wet, lazy, & indoors with too many sugar treats <ahem leftover monster party donuts>. But for real, I only had one & I am proud because it was delicious. I did decide to try church this past Sunday for the first time in 7 weeks since it was initially supposed to be my first day off of bed rest until recently. Wouldn't you know I about wiped it out on the wet porch steps going to the car? Needless to say, I stayed in for the rest of the day. I have to say--it was so nice to be out in public for a couple hours & feel like I am slowly starting to get back to normal. Hmmmm. What else? My ice
And what else is precious? You'll just have to come back tomorrow to find out;)
Happy Hump Day, y'all!
