hoping this isn't an epic sized entry- sorry in advance if it ends up that way. It's been a few long weeks, and frankly we've been up to a lot!
Dh started on the room- details include the granting our loan, picking out carpet and wall color and pricing out the necessary supplies. We are hoping to get electric rerouted and the closet framed in soon.. ei, this weekend. Then we'll push through the wall and be on our way. (in attempt to not have a ridiculous electric bill this is our advised method. Hoping it works! )
More things are being dropped off by well wishers and regifters. Seems like we went from having most things to "oops! Doubles and triples of some things!" I was grateful and laughing about it earlier but then things took an out of control turn. If we had triplets on the way perhaps! But we don't! So a regifting we will go!
I had my high risk ob apt. yesterday to discuss my gest diabetes... I should be grateful I know, but I am just upset instead. I mean if this was a real deal crisis why has it taken a month to get me from testing into the office? ok- 3 weeks but still waiting on a meter and a dietician consultation. that puts us out at least another week. (never mind me- probably just my hormones making me crazy. every thing else seems to be connected to them these days!) But there was great news - you weighed in at 3 pounds and 13 ounces and said to expect you to gain apx 4 more before birth. And, they ran risk assessment ultrasound and did a genetic work up (that I had waived at the reg ob. I have always wondered if I had made the right decision back in the spring when I did that.) and you look picture perfect. Am a bit afraid what the charge will be (I think this one is out of pocket, no insurance!) but at the same time I should admit it was really nice to see you again kiddo. You're kind of my favorite! And I am super glad to say your are picture perfect!
So it's H's birthday Monday- we're getting together Sunday with friends and family to celebrate. Low key this year for sanity's sake. We went with McDonalds and I will sing (or scream) their praises next week! lol!
Hugs kiddo, more to tell for sure but not at present. Work is calling and so is a restroom break.
