Glue, Macaroni, & More Big Needles

So I will be 31 weeks tomorrow....only 9 more to go! The last 2 weeks have been pretty busy....

My first glucose tolerance test came back slightly elevated so, last Friday morning (6/4), we had to go back to the doctor so that I could drink more nasty orange sugar water and have my blood drawn every hour for 3 hours with the big needle (sounds fun, right?). Thankfully, the second test came back normal so I can now say that I do not have gestational diabetes!

This past week was Vacation Bible School. When I signed up to help, I told them I'd like to be a helper in Arts & Crafts. Little did I know, they put me with the preschoolers! Going from 8th graders to 2, 3, 4, & 5-year olds was a big change, as I spent a large amount of time trying to explain why eating glue and sticking macaroni up their noses are not wise choices! Though some of my 8th graders could take behavior lessons from preschoolers! Needless to say, it was a lot of fun and I definitely got my laughs for the week (and then I came home and passed out for an hour every day!)!

This past Friday was our regularly scheduled doctor's appointment and everything is still progressing smoothly. Katelyn continues to grow (as does my stomach), her heartbeat was steady at 155, and I got through this appointment without having any needles stuck in my arm (no such luck for the next appointment in 2 weeks). My favorite thing to do these days is lay on the couch and watch my stomach move as Katelyn gets her's pretty cool to watch!

So, as the due date draws near, it's time for me to get in gear. This week's major tasks include finding fabric for the rocking chair pad and window valences, decorating the nursery walls, finding one more bookcase for the nursery, and getting the bags packed for the hospital! It's amazing how you think you have tons of time to get ready and then, all of a sudden, the number of weeks are in the single digits! It won't be long now......
