28 weeks tomorrow!

I took my chair cusions in today to the upholstery shop....and I just ordered the fabric that I want them covered in:

On a grosser topic....last night after getting home from work, the worst experience ever suddenly occured....out of the blue. Major constipation. It was AWFUL...and I never want to discuss it or experience it again in my life!

Finally, no word from the OB's office on the results of my 3 hour glucose test. I did it on Friday morning. I am assuming that means all is well. Surely if I failed, they would have called by now. Part of me wants to call them just to make sure, but the other part of me is lazy and figures I will just wait for them to tell me the results.

27 weeks, 1 day

Aside from a bit of burping this morning, I feel pretty good. Peyton & hubby are at the "Donuts with Dad" thing at the preschool & the girls are at school, so I have peace & quiet & the house all to myself! And spring is on its way, it is a beautiful looking day outside, supposed to be about 60 degrees I think! I think I will clean a bit inside and maybe open a few windows later on. Nothing too exciting to report on in pregnancy land. This past weekend, hubby brought home a glider/rocker from his mom's house. I admitt I was PO'd at 1st because I really wanted the chenille glider from Babies R Us. That one, but in white, with an ottoman, PLUS, anything that comes from his parents house (and I do love them, but....) smells like smoke!!!! But, its not too bad. The color pretty much matches the crib & dresser and the cushions were removable....so I am taking them to an upholstery shop to see about relacing them and having them covered in either white chenille or the pink fabric that I made my curtains out of. Hopefully in a week or two we can afford to get the rest of the room finished...sheet rock up, moulding, paint and doors. I told hubby last night that once that is done, I will be at peace & be ready..... (-:

Edited to say: I jinxed myself. I now feel like crap, nausea and horrible, loud stomach churning have set in again.

I know what is next on my diaper wish list....

Peyton is OBSESSED with Dr. Seuss, especially the "Grinch". He was thrilled when I showed him the Bumkins AIO "One Fish, Two Fish" diaper that I had bought for baby. He will DIE when he sees these:

The one I have is a size small, which supposedly fits 6-12 lbs, but I swear it looks bigger than that!!!?? I guess I will have to just wait & see how big baby is and maybe buy the Grinch one closer to Christmas when I can better gauge what size she will need. I found them online for $17.95 each.....

Let's just pray that I pass the 3 hr test!

I am so depressed....I had to do some grocery shopping today anyways, so I decided to stock up on healthier food options for me and really was reading lables and checking sugar content on everything, just in case they do deem me as a diabetic. I am majorly depressed. EVERYTHING has a ton of sugar in it. I am so sad. The oreos were calling my name. Even the boring plain yogurt had 11 grams of sugar....about the same as the flavored ones!!??? Anyways....I am going to try to eat better diabetes or none, but I just pray I can still have oreos when I feel like it! (-:

I failed my one hour glucose screening!

I am really bummed! I had a bad feeling about it anyways...maybe because I have never had any issues with it in my previous 3 pregnancies and I am now old as dirt and everything thus far has been great & normal with this pregnancy, so something had to give. I do NOT want a huge baby! Been there/done that with Savannah (9lbs 5 oz, vaginal delivery!) and I wasn't even a diabetic! No thank you! So, I go back on the 19th for the 3 hour test. I have pretty much concluded that I will fail again, be sent to the dietician and will be classified as having gestational diabetes. I will die. I love to eat crap. I know its not the end of the world, and there are A LOT of things that are far worse that could go wrong, so I will not complain too much. Being forced to eat healthy 24/7 is not the worst thing in the world for me! I guess that I will head out to the grocery store today & start stocking up on some good stuff....fish, chicken, more veggies, plain yogurt, wheat bread. Hell, I don't know! Basically I will just pick the opposite of what I usually would reach for! LOL! However, I am supposed to Carb Load for three days PRIOR to my three hr test, so starting Tues, I get one last hoo-ray! Eat all the white breads, ice creams, carb laiden foods that I want! (-:
