27 weeks

We are getting closer, and I am getting more uncomfortable by the day.  Things are still going well, but I am just getting achy and I just can't seem to get comfortable.  Only 11 or 12 weeks left!  I am still struggling with what to do about the delivery, but at the moment I'm leaning toward just scheduling a c-section.  I do not take this decision lightly.  There are many pros and cons either way.  I will still consider it all though.  No final decisions will be made for a while.

I had my glucose tolerance test this morning.  It wasn't too bad.  The drink was not good, but it was tolerable.  The worst part was being hungry.  I typically eat breakfast right away after a shower in the morning and its hard for me to not eat.  I just hope I pass this so I don't have to do the 3 hour test.  That would be difficult for me.  The phlebotomist this morning was the best one I've had in a long time though.  I told her about my blood draw problems, but amazingly she didn't have any problem at all!  She hit the vein right away.  I was extremely happy about that.  Darren suggested I get her business card and call her every time I need blood drawn.  I have to say its tempting. :)

My birthday was last week.  I didn't know what I wanted for presents, so Darren didn't really get me much.  Of course, his "not much" turned out to be the best present a pregnant woman could ever have!  He bought me a grabber.  It sounds silly, but I love it!  I've been having a hard time bending over and its really difficult to pick up the dog bowls off the ground.  The grabber is a tremendous help because I can pick up the dog bowls now without any problem.  I also discovered today that the grabber makes it possible to play ball with my ball obsessed dog again!  Poor Doogie has been neglected for several weeks because I just couldn't pick up the ball off the ground anymore.  Now I can pick up the ball without bending over, and my little dog is a very happy boy!

My next doctor's appointment is this Wednesday.  It should be just another routine appointment.  I will probably get the results of my glucose test then.  Hopefully its good news!
