Another Dr Appt Down

We had another Dr. appointment this morning. I think I have almost met all the Doctors in the practice - I at least want to have met the person that will be helping bring my baby into the world! Everything is going just fine, however, the past couple of days I have been very dizzy and nauseated (especially when I am trying to sleep). Thursday night I got so dizzy just from rolling over that it woke me up and I spent the rest of the night sick. Dr. Cartwright explained that this is from me laying on my back, which causes the weight of the baby to cut off a vein in my back, which causes my blood pressure to drop really low. Then, when I roll over, it shoots back up very quickly which causes the dizziness. Long story short - I am just fine, I just have to be extra careful not to sleep on my back! As much as I love feeling this angel and having her all to myself, I am starting to get a little more anxious for her to make her grand debut. Not only so I can finally meet her, but so I can sleep on my stomach again!

Nursery is Complete

After weeks of setbacks, our baby's nursery is finally complete!! We couldn't be happier with it. Kudos to my wonderful husband for putting it all together. (If it had been left to me, half the pieces would have been broken in a hormonal temper tantrum!) Check out the pics and let us know what you think.


Only 9 more weeks to go!!!!!!!!

Glucose is Normal!

Just got the results for my glucose test. I was so worried that I would develop gestational diabetes, but, thank goodness, my blood sugar is actually a little low. Normal is anywhere between 65-134 and mine was 62 or 63. I am mildly anemic - no big deal, I will just take extra iron supplements. No more needles until this baby actually gets here. I can't believe we only have 10 more weeks. I cannot get over how quickly this whole pregnancy has went by! We cannot wait to meet our little princess!

Nursery Update - After going round and round with Babies R Us, we finally just decided to order our baby furniture from It is scheduled to be in this week. For anyone who is preparing to buy baby furniture, take my advice, save yourself a headache and DO NOT go to Babies R Us!!
