I love that I can feel the curve of my baby’s back.
You know what’s annoying?
When a lab says it opens at 8am and you call to ask a question and they’re all “oh we open at 9.”
Then when you ask them about the glucose test you need to take they say you can’t eat anything. So I try to ask if I can eat like a piece of toast like 6 hours before I come in and they’re like no don’t eat anything. And then I explain how they don’t understand and that I can’t go that long without eat or I’ll get sick.
They respond with you can eat ONE egg. Umm what the heck is the difference between one egg and two? Nothing cause two eggs have, like, A carb.
So I ask if I can eat anything else like 6 hours before I come in and she says “no one egg.”
I wake up at 2:30am. I eat dinner between 4:30 or 5pm. And you guys don’t open until 9am. And you expect me to go 16 hours on ONE egg??
No. Not gonna happen. At this point I don’t care if eating a piece of toast (that is only 12g of carbs…no sugar) at 2:30 in the morning fucks up my glucose test.
Sigh. Maybe I’ll eat some almonds or cashews….rawr
I’m gonna be a mom soon.
I have has a bad headache for like two-three days now.
It might me cutting down on my zofran, or maybe it’s cause I’m mildly dehydrated. I dunno. But it’s definitely not helping with the return of my morning sickness :-/ I guess it never went away :-(
These are horrible pictures, but its the best I could do.
There are very few things that scream baby more then a baby swing.
It’s crazy how tumblr has changed my life. Like meeting a friend who ends up being one of the most supportive people during my pregnancy!
Karen got us the baby swing off our registry (which was way too generous) and took time out of her busy schedule to hang out with me for hours at the beginning of my pregnancy when I really needed it.
I’m so grateful to have her in my life. And so is my baby!
Thank you again. So much. I love you bunches and I’ll see you July 3rd :)
This is why I love him: reason 1,274
- Me: I'm not sure if I napped or not. I just remember that I kept thinking I needed to pee.
- Husband: Oh, you definitely napped, you were in the perfect position to snore. You were making your little warthoggy noises and everything.
- Me: gah!
- Husband: It was adorable. *kisses forehead*
So Pete and I can’t afford to spend $150 on a co-sleeper mattress that the baby will be on for 6 months or less. So I’ve been trying to figure out a way to safely use the polyurethane piece of toxic crap that came with it.
My thought is to buy a barrier pillow case to cover the mattress in. Then a wool mattress pad (absorbent and a secondary barrier) then cover it all in a king size (organic) pillow case—which fits the co-sleeper perfectly.
I have two concerns. (1) nothing I’m adding should make it too soft for baby, right? (2) that should be enough to keep most of the off gassing inside/away from baby, yes?
It’s either that or only use the wool mattress pad, which I’m worried will just be waaaay too hard.
