Can you believe we are already in the last week of January?!?!
It just hit me the other day that we only have a little over two months left before we meet our baby girl. My due date is coming so soon and we still have a huge list of stuff to get done. It's a good thing we are expecting a big snowstorm tomorrow. Being stuck inside will be the perfect opportunity to accomplish some things around the house.
Though we still have a lot to do, I've managed to get quite a bit done already though. The bassinet is all set up and stocked with some newborn diapers ready to go. We also bought some new outfits for her to wear. Then my mom and I went out to breakfast over the weekend then afterwards I bought mostly everything we needed for the hospital. My bag is about halfway packed now. Besides that, we picked out a few more things for Madelyn's big sister bag of treats. We wanted her to have something fun and exciting to open up while I'm in the hospital so she doesn't feel left out.
Her teacher told me that she is so excited to meet her baby sister though. That's all she talks about to her friends in class. Anyways, here's a picture of Madelyn at breakfast time over the weekend.
Then we celebrated my mom's Birthday over the weekend. Madelyn stayed home with daddy while my mom and I went out to dinner at the hibachi restaurant with Amanda, Donna, and Pam. We had a fun time and our server was much more entertaining than the ones we have had in the past.
After dinner, I picked up Madelyn and we went back over to Amanda's house for cake. It really was a great night. Madelyn especially had fun playing with ponies and seeing Amanda's dogs.
I didn't get any pictures from that night but I do have one from Madelyn earlier in the day.
First off, I got my blood drawn without feeling lightheaded at all. This was a major accomplishment for me. Especially considering I didn't have my music to distract me. I went to turn it on only to discover that it didn't work because there was no cell phone service in the lab. The girl who drew my blood was so sweet though. She gave me a Winnie the Pooh sticker when I was all done and Madelyn got a handful of them too.
Then when I saw the Doctor, she said everything looked great. My blood pressure was perfect and the baby's still growing right on track. It was a very quick appointment but I was so happy to walk out of there with all good news.
The next day I received more good news that all my blood test results came back normal. I was especially happy to know that I didn't have gestational diabetes.
I also finally got around to having some pregnancy pictures taken. Here are a few that were taken a couple weeks back.
Well I hope everyone has a great week! Stay safe if you live in any of the areas being affected by the snow.
