Seriously, how is it that nearly 2 weeks have passed since I posted last? It really doesn't seem like that long!
Things have been absolutely nuts for me lately. It's the whole Halloween thing. A and I are HUGE Halloween nuts. We volunteered for 11 years at a local Haunted House before it closed after the 2007 season. In the 3 years since we've built a mini haunt in our yard. Here's a video of this year's haunt. I didn't help with the build as much this year as in years past obviously, but I did get to play a crazy escaped mental patient with my psycho baby doll. I LOVED it.
In baby news, I had my glucose test last week. It SUCKED! My advice for anyone who has to go through it, if you don't have to fast DON'T. I was so nauseous after drinking that orange crap I struggled to keep it down for the necessary hour. When I got to work, I munched on crackers until about lunch, and then I finally felt like eating real food around 2pm, and my test was at 8am!!! Won't have the results till my next appointment, but I'm guessing if it was really bad they would have called sooner. Next appointment is next Tuesday, and we'll have the anatomy scan the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. Oh and the chiropractor is helping SO much with the leg issues. I still get the tingling every day, but the sharp stabbing and burning pain only comes infrequently now instead of every day.
I've started feeling more and more of the uterine flutters that are known to happen around this time, but nothing real from the baby yet. I'm really looking forward to really starting to feel movement. There's still a part of me that doesn't think this can be real, that this is all just a dream. I don't know when it's going to all sink in, but I'm really looking forward to that.
Otherwise I'm feeling pretty good. The nausea and heartburn have lessened quite a bit. All in all I've been really lucky so far. I've had it pretty easy and, knock on wood, that will continue.
A has been giving me a lot of crap for not posting more regularly, and the truth is I feel really bad about it. Thank you for sticking with me even if I am only posting once a week. I actually started this post 3 days ago, and its taken me this long to finish it. I'm setting a goal for myself to post at least once a week going forward. Hopefully I'll be able to keep to that. Oh and I do have some belly pics, I just have to get them off the camera and I'll post them. By next week I promise!
