Day 16

17 Oct

Do you want the good news or the bad news first? Good? Ok me too. I passed my glucose test and the other levels they checked looked good too! Thank goodness! I do have slight anemia and need to start taking an iron supplement (I’m not surprised by this at all as I have had anemia in the past and it is common for vegetarians). Overall, great news.

The bad news is I only got one item marked off the list yesterday, even though I said I needed to do two! We were going to hang the curtains in the gray room, but someone fell asleep on the couch (that would be me). I went to Walmart yesterday which I never ever do (I probably haven’t been to a Walmart in 6 months) and it apparently wore me out. I can’t believe I used to do all my shopping at Walmart when we lived in Arkansas.

I did get us registered for birthing and breastfeeding classes though. Doesn’t that sound like so much fun? A whole weekend of birthing class! Who wants to join me?! Ha! We decided to do the weekend birthing class in late November since I know December is going to be cray cray! Hopefully we won’t forget everything we learn before Liam arrives! I also looked at thank you notes online, but I didn’t order any yet so I can’t mark it off!

That’s about all I’ve got for today. I need to get my productivity groove back asap!
