A short month and it is flying by fast! I am now 27 weeks - 13 more weeks to go! Overall, I would rate the last month as having tackled on major changes and challenges (aside from the baby front). There were other big projects that my hubby and I tackled on in the last 3 weeks, hence a sidetrack from what I have outlined from the beginning of the year. I feel I have some catching up on the baby front. But what this last month also revealed to me is how incredibly lucky Corey and I to be surrounded by people (near and far) who would come through to help see us succeed. I feel very blessed and thankful.
To recap the past month since my last post:
1. Recap of January Wish List:
KonMari - still in the works! I have started on culling my clothing and was successful in giving away clothes that I have not used in the last two years since my last KonMari in Calgary. However, I have let in more clothes as I ran into problem of not having any left to fit me when I grew too fast too quick! My sister came to the rescue with clothes that she wore during her pregnancy. I have selected the ones I will keep and will return some back to her.
To Make List
Candle Class - I had to reschedule the candle class to April 14 (this was a Christmas gift to my sister). We are signed up at Soigne in Vancouver and that happened to be the only availability given the limited class schedule and my sister's work hours.
Maternity Dress - I have 13 weeks to go! Ahh! Need to make one for myself pronto :p. I found some inspiration online.
2. Gestational Diabetes Glucose Test
I went in for my Gestational Diabetes Glucose Testing first thing on Saturday at 7:30am (week 27). I chose the Lifelab on Keefer Street. Great staff! They attended to me right away. My last meal ended at 7pm from the night before, and I have had only water since. My blood was drawn 3 times. First one at the beginning of the appointment and every hour after that. I was given an orange juice to drink - the first staff said to drink it slow as other people have commented that it made them gag or puke. But I loved it! It tastes like Sunny-D. :D. For the next two hours, I just had to wait in the waiting room and go in to get my blood drawn every hour. My husband also stayed with me the whole time. He's been a big support. So another one off the checklist!
