Good news…I PASSED the gestational diabetes test! Glucose level needed to be under 145, mine was 125, she said I passed with an A+!
The blood pressure tests have been going okay…I started working out over the weekend and my blood pressure dropped…it went back up after that first post I made saying that it was normal. I was averaging around 140/85. But, after starting my new “plan”, it was very close to healthy both yesterday and today…yesterday was 124/72, today was 131/74, and that was with me sitting and suffering with a migraine. So, this no caffeine, lower sodium, more exercising thing has been working.
I also registered today for the childbirth and breastfeeding classes. Ooh boy. The childbirth classes run 3 weeks, starting April 2nd. The breastfeeding class is April 15th. Ooh, fun fun.
Today I filled out the pre-admission paperwork for the hospital. I just need to drop that off sometime soon, so we’ll be all set to deliver.
We also made excellent progress on the nursery last week. Scott thinks it will be done to the point where we can start unpacking and building furniture in a few weeks. I think it will be sooner than that (since my nesting urges have gone into overdrive!)
I also began researching pediatricians today, since we need to pick one for the hospital. I have one in mind, I just want to sit down and talk it over with Scott before we make an appointment to visit with them.
Wow – just a few more days until I’m officially in the 3rd trimester…we’re on the home stretch!
