The Home Stretch!

I guess I can call it that? I'm finally into my THIRD TRIMESTER! I can't believe that in just 3 more long, uncomfortable, quiet, lazy months Ollie will grace us with his presence! It does feel like it's been so long since we found out we were pregnant, but at the same time, the months have flown, and I can't believe we're already here. I can only imagine that the next 87 days will go by quickly too, especially because we have so much going on in between now and then.

I remember when Justin and I were engaged, I started the countdown at more than 200 days. That time felt like an eternity, but then all of a sudden we were married, and now it's almost been 4 years.

Pregnancy has been going great for me. I really have been very lucky to avoid much sickness, cravings, extreme hunger, etc. Justin treats me so well, and it's been so wonderful to be able to be home and take care of myself this time. I really am lucky, and I try hard to not forget it.

I had an appointment yesterday, and finally did the dreaded glucose test. Luckily I didn't have to drink Orange flavor (which I abhor. detest. loath. Is there a stronger word?), but downed the fruit punch instead. It's a pretty gross thing to have to drink that much sugar first thing in the morning. I don't think I consume that much in a week, much less in 5 minutes. I haven't heard anything, but hopefully I passed the test. I assume they'd let me know if there was a problem...

The rest of the appointment went great. I'm spot on in weight and measurements, which is a big relief to me. I've been trying really hard to watch what I eat and not over indulge, so it's really good to know that everything is as it should be.

We're working on getting the nursery set up. I cleaned out the room, which has been used for storage, last week, and my parents bought us a beautiful glider, which we picked up, assembled, and I have been using ever since. Hopefully we can get the crib and changing table from their storage place this weekend, and then we'll be well on our way to our nursery. It's really exciting, and takes my mind off of all the unknown that is lingering above our heads right now.
