This is the slowest week ever and is just dragging on! I definitely see a trip to Nordstroms and BabyGap happening on Friday afternoon. I have to buy at least one or 2 fun things! My mom says that she is not buying the baby anything else (she was AWESOME and bought us a great early baby shower gift which I will post pictures of later), but I know my mom and I think even she laughs in her head when she says that. I'm also 99.9% sure that she already has boy and girl fabric picked out for the first quilt and is just waiting for the call to see which fabric to order :-)
I had my normal pre-natal appointment this past Friday and everything went well and as expected. I gained 2 pounds last month, which brings my total so far up to about 5 pounds. I'm trying REALLY hard not to gain too much, but I'm sure the yummy Dairy Queen I had last night isn't going to help me accomplish that (side note: chocolate dipped vanilla cone= heaven on earth).
I was a little bummed that they didn't have the blood results back from my 1st and 2nd trimester blood tests that check for Downs, Spina Bifida, and a few more conditions. She said the results would be in any day and because of my age and family history I really have no reason to worry. But worrying is what a first time mom does, so I called today to see if my results came in. I really wanted them before the big ultrasound to ease my mind. The nurse didn't give me the exact numbers (normally like 1/10,000) but said that all the tests came back great. So that eases my mind for now, Ill get the numbers at my appointment next month.
