I will be 27 weeks pregnant tomorrow. I had a doctor’s checkup yesterday. Everything is going well and progressing normally.
I recently had a glucose screening to check for gestational diabetes. I’m fine – no diabetes here!
I have been experiencing an increase in appetite lately, along with a decrease in the ability to sleep at night. The doctor said my body is getting prepped for all of the sleepless nights after baby arrives! I have been craving salad and crushed ice. Ben keeps hoping for something more exotic, or at 3 a.m. in the morning. No luck! Last Sunday I dreamed of biscuits and gravy, so at 3 a.m. I woke up and thawed out my sausage and then got up early to make biscuits & gravy for breakfast. Of course…afterwards I felt sick!
I hit a couple of garage sales last weekend. Actually, I dragged Ben out of bed at 7 a.m. on his one day off to take me to the garage sales. What we found was worth it…to me. I found some cheap baby items, a couple of rubber stamp sets, Beauty & the Beast on DVD, and a large Pampered Chef pizza stone. I also discovered a new consignment store and picked up some maternity items and baby clothes for cheap.
I picked up a couple of girly sleepers and onesies. So…if my Mom is right, and she is getting a granddaughter, I will have some things at the beginning!
It’s not pink, but it is frilly. It even has ruffles on the bum of the tights!
I was excited to find this – a Peter Rabbit onesie! I am decorating the “nursery” in Beatrix Potter & Peter Rabbit.
Ben has been wanting to buy me a nice maternity dress, but they are so hard to find. I cam across this dress – nice, and modest – at the consignment store…only $7.99!
