WOW, what a difference 3 weeks makes!
Not much else to report, I went back to work Tuesday- and I forgot how tiring it can be! I'm even slow getting back into the swing of things, I can't imagine if I had to jump right into it.
It doesn't help much that I'm getting sick. Chris went to the dr last week for the same thing and got some antibiotics. I'm not really sure there's much I can take, so is it worth it going? Near the beginning of the pregnancy I had been told I had a UTI and had to take 10 days worth of amoxicillin, 3x a day. I DO NOT think I could do that now!! In my dream world, I'd rather not have to swallow anything bigger than an ibuprofen. I do make an exception for the prenatals.
I still haven't heard back from my gestational diabetes test, weird. I go in tomorrow for my progesterone shot- so I'll check then.

LAUNDRY ROOM: I don't have a before picture, but where you see gray- it used to be white. The gray paint is actually chalkboard paint, I can't wait to draw on it tomorrow morning once it's all dry!
WORKOUT ROOM (NEW GUEST ROOM)-
On it's way to being the nursery, I will post pictures of the material swatches for the nursery bedding after I take some pictures. I think the color is called Toasted Honey? Or toasted something or other.

This Wednesday marked 28 weeks which means I had the opportunity to drink my orange drink and then get blood drawn for the gestational diabetes test. Anyone know how long it usually takes for results? REALLY REALLY hoping I passed. I do NOT want to come back for a 3 hour fasting test.
That's about all the news I have. We're headed to Claremore here in a bit for Chris to go to the dr. I think he's hacked up 1 1/2 lungs so far, so we need to preserve the last half.

Has anyone out there ever made baby bedding? I'd really like to make Emmy's, but hoping it's not too hard. Once I pick out the material, I'll also use it on the curtains, some pillows for the rocking chair and maybe some burp clothes and swaddle blankets.

My mom and girl relatives from the KC area are coming down this weekend, yay.
I have a dr's appointment later today and will update after that. Only 2 weeks left of this bedrest thing. I am definitely ready to get out and see people and socialize (you know me) but I am NOT, I repeat NOT ready to get up early in the mornings. I wouldn't quite classify myself as a late sleeper, I'm just saying- I'd rather sleep in until 7 instead of getting up at 5:45.
Other than the dr's appointment today, life has been fairly uneventful (a good thing)

The first chart is for weight.
This second chart is for heigh.
What does this all mean? It means that when I was 3 years old I was in the bottom 3% for height and just above the 50th percentile for weight. Make your own assumptions =).

Just had to post some pictures of one of the MANY cute things I found for Emmy. I have been searching the past 8 weeks for a newborn swimsuit and couldn't find one. I'm thinking it's b/c you probably shouldn't take newborns swimming all that often? But, we have a pool and anything that's miniature in size is cute- so that justified needing a little swimsuit.
I should have put an object up to it for size comparison. But I think you can get the idea.
