Updates, 31 weeks

Yeah, 31 weeks. That's an update alright.

*I kicked the glucose tolerance test's ass: my score was 93! Wooh! I celebrated with dark chocolate and vanilla bean ice cream.

*We have finally finished the room renovation that is now our master bedroom! It took 2 and 1/2 months because it was a total gut rehab, but we are moved in, and it is lovely,

*Nursery should be finished this weekend sans one or two pieces of furniture and wall hangings. I haven't gotten that far in terms of any decorating ideas. That seemed so silly to me because I mostly had been just hoping to stay pregnant. Planning the decor seemed so unrealistic, but it's coming and I gotta start planning.

*Summer school is over in about 2 1/2 weeks, then I get three weeks off! Yipee, although I can't imagine what I can do for 3 weeks in the hot hot August weather.

*Total weight gain is 20 pounds as of Thursday's appointment.

*Met with the pediatrician practice we are choosing. Their office is pretty neat with a well waiting area and a sick waiting area. Nice. Also, they do not use nurses; there are four doctors and just regular people manning the phones, etc. They said that they believe that the only person the parent wants to speak with is the doctor, and they are 100 percent committed to that philosophy. Sweet.

*Got the lowdown on the vaccine issue. This office does its own delay system and does not believe in doing all vaccines such as hep A or RSV. I am cool with their schedule, so my concerns have been met. I still think it is kinda weird to give hep B vaccine to a child since it is only transmitted via blood, but I can compromise.

*Feeling woefully unprepared--for everything. This really is going to happen, and I am scared to death.

31 weeks!! Wow!! You're in the homestretch!! That's great about the peds being so available to talk to you. And oh my gosh how jealous am I that they have their own delayed vax schedule. Seriously. If you happen to have it written down at all and could share with me I'd be eternally greatful. Our 12 month appointment is coming up and we did our own delayed vax sched sort of Dr. Sears-ish but I'm stuck on where to go from here. So excited that you're almost there!!

Everything sounds great! You are almost there! Enjoy some rest for three weeks.

I didn't realize that this was "really going to happen" until the mine were 6 months old so don't feel bad! Great news on the glucose test.

Great news! What is your plan for nursery decor? I was thinking a lot about what would be best for gender neutral design.
Getting scared ... I can totally relate to that! it still feels surreal for me but the calendar says it is happening soon!
Happy 3T!

If you were not freaking, I think it means you are made of stone.

Of course it is happening! You will be divine. No sweat. I swear.
