So I bought a new camera for us a couple weeks ago and I swear, I must have it on some obscure setting because the photos have been absolutely terrible and the camera has such great reviews. Hence this terrible photo. But there's no missing the belly :)
I decided against doing the weekly questionnaire cause I didn't really feel like the answers had changed much, and I'd rather write about my thoughts on my body as I'm going through this unique time where I've got a little "uterus inhabitant" that's causing my feet to swell and my nose (and hips) to widen and me seeing a number on a scale that I've never seen before (and actually, that's not true cause I still don't know what I've gained, I just choose not to find out! I just know that I weigh quite a bit more than I ever have before).
How about some random little updates?
- I passed my glucose test! My level was 111, and my doctor said she likes to see it below 140. She also said my hemoglobin was good, which I have no clue why that's significant.
- I bought our car seat and stroller tonight! This is the one I bought, it's the Britax B-Agile System. I basically bought it cause I liked the way it looked the best and I knew that it had good safety reviews. I actually didn't buy it from Amazon cause they wouldn't ship it for 2 months, which would've been fine, but I was afraid that date would get delayed further and I really didn't want to be one month out from my due date trying to track down a car seat that I liked. By the way, who knew that baby items were so hard to get exactly when you want them?? Most cribs and other baby items that I've looked at - save for small things - have these long ship dates. PS - I bought it on hayneedle.com, which I had never heard of but it basically seems like another Amazon. I got free shipping on it and it was only $5 more there.
- I seriously can't get over the movement I've been experiencing! This baby is a little mover. The neatest thing is that they've gone less from being kick-like movements or little thuds, which is what I would expect to occur when there's lots of room for them to bounce around, to being these inward, long, rolling movements. I'll feel pressure suddenly on one side and if I put my hand there then, it's always really hard and I'll almost always get a little nudge back. I'm hoping she's rolling herself into the head-down position, although I wonder if she isn't transverse? I don't know. I literally feel movements on every part of my belly.
3rd trimester next week!
