I can't believe it's been a whole freakin' month since I last posted! I keep meaning to... And I am still trying my best to keep up with all of the blogs on my list, just not keeping up with my own blog!

I've got lots of belly pics to update, but I've somehow misplaced my camera cord, and though both my printer and laptop have card readers I lost the adaptor that makes my super tiny memory card fit into the right slot. I have an idea which room the cable is hidden in - the soon to be new-person room, formerly my home office/random stuff storage room - but I haven't been able to pull together the motivation to actually look for it.

Things are progressing normally. I've had a few minor meltdowns over things that turn out to be nothing - things that at the time scare the crap out of me, like extremely painful Braxton Hicks contractions coming every five minutes for hours on end, exposure to Fifth Disease, and more. According to my doc, the severity of the BH is normal as long as I show no other signs of early labour. And the Fifth Disease exposure turned out to be a non-issue because I have the right antibodies to show that I have already had it earlier in life. And there's been other stuff... stuff I almost ran to the computer to blog about but then decided to wait until I'd been checked out so that I didn't unnecessarily worry any of you...

Work goes on as usual, with 101 days until my expected departure for my maternity leave. No, I'm not really counting the days like it seems - I just know that I have 111 days til my due date, and I'm scheduled to start my time off 10 days prior to that.

So yeah, nothing new to report. GD test will be booked at my next appt on the 28th, and I am so not looking forward to that. I get migraines when I have too much sugar, and that test is guaranteed to exceed my 'safe' level of glucose consumption.

But... back to work for me! Read you all later!


  1. Glad everything is going well!

  2. Glad to see you back. I check on you everyday! I can't wait to see the updated belly pics. I think those are the most exciting part.

  3. Nice to hear that everything is going so well :)


  4. Keep up the good work...grow that baby!

  5. You sound like me. I've been exposed to Fifths disease TWICE and I don't have the antibodies to prevent it. Luckily, I've managed to avoid getting it as it's been at least a month since exposure. I'm just trying to dodge the illness bullet at this point and that is so exhausting! And I didn't realize BH could start so early. WOW.

    Glad to hear all is well. Missed you!

  6. Happy to read the update.

    Glad everything is going well for you.

    Glad your back! As long as your going alright that's all that matters, we can wait for the pics.
    It seems like your flying through the pregnancy but I do understand that you have had some dramas, just glad that it turned out that everythings alright.
    Have a nice weekend and don't be working too hard.
    Hugs, Lesley
