~ Hot, Miserable, and on Our Way to the Happiest Place on Earth
We've had a little rain scattered over the past few weeks and while it cooled things off briefly, it made the mosquitos so bad that you cannot walk outside without being bit at least a half a dozen times. Everyone has been busy talking about the first day of summer (June 21) and I am thinking to myself, where have you all been since about mid April? I think we completely skipped spring this year and went straight to summer! I keep telling my husband that he OWES me. I have never been this hot in all my life.
Baby is doing really good. He is extremely active and I keep feeling movements all over the place. Some of the more powerful movements have me worried right now though, because they are down low. I am hoping this baby, if he is breech or transverse will hurry and get head down before he runs out of room to turn. The doctor has not said anything about him being the wrong way yet. But I don't want to wait until it's too late and end up with a C-section. That is one of my biggest concerns every time I get pregnant.
I've been working a lot this week on baby things, trying to keep track of what we have and what we need. We had a surprise baby shower last weekend from my husband's side of the family and had a decent turn out and received some wonderful gifts.
I've gotta go one day this week and do my glucose fasting test. I've done this test before with both of my other pregnancies but for some reason this time, it has me a little worried. Mainly because my dad was diagnosed with diabetes about 6 years ago even though he was very responsible about his health and treatment of his diabetes. I also know it was hard for him, having to give up certain things that he loved to eat and all. I also know that with gestational diabetes, it normally goes away once you deliver but still, I just don't want to deal with it.
As I have said on several occasions, we are leaving going on vacation for a week and this vacation is in dire need! I need to get out of the house and have fun and just get away. I think we all do, we've been in what feels like a constant fog since this past November. Not just with everything that happened surrounding my dad, but even the baby coming. We just need some time to have fun as a family before we throw a baby into that mix of things. I try not to talk negatively in my pregnancy journal, but there are certain people in the family that are absolutely driving me nuts! I will update on that next time I write. I will try and update while we are gone to Florida, but if not I will as soon as we get in. Take care and have a Blessed and Safe 4th of July with your family and friends!
