misc bulleted list of recent things

  • Shopped way too much on Friday, but managed to knock off the entire list of things remaining that I "needed" before the baby's birth. Found a carseat, stroller, and many small, miscellaneous things that have been sitting on a list.
  • Spent the morning at a city Easter egg hunt. We've gone every year for the last 4 years, I think? The boys had a great time.
  • Wore myself out and gasped for breath most of the day. Fun times.
  • Loaded up the Easter baskets and hid them after the boys went to bed. Realized I bought too much candy (I don't usually put much candy in their baskets) so I have some stashed in the closet. Their baskets have good chocolates (Dove and Lindt), jelly belly jellybeans, bubbles, dvds (Happy Feet for C, Peter Pan for N), Our Lady of Grace figurines, a stuffed chick dressed like a bunny and a stuffed bunny dressed like a chick (one in each basket), cork pop guns, penny whistles, pez dispensers, extra pez candy . . . I think that's it.
  • Filled about 50 plastic eggs with change and hid them in the backyard. Hopefully the boys won't care that they're all filled with money this year - - in years past the Easter Bunny has filled them with stickers, small toys and only fill a few with change. I'll explain they're getting older or something if they mention it.
  • It's still true that the less I eat the better my blood sugar numbers are. However, I ate a hamburger and a soft serve ice cream cone the other day for lunch and had a very low reading afterwards. I'm just going to keep doing the best I can, avoiding sugar as much as I can, and tracking my numbers.
  • Had another full ultrasound on Thursday and found that the baby is measuring only a couple days ahead of schedule, so she's not one of those "giant gestational diabetes babies" that you always hear about and I was worried about. She was doing perfect; very active and doing lots of practice breathing. The tech said she could already see that she had a full head of hair ;) Oh, and the non-stress test and ultrasound at the hospital on Tuesday also had good results. I'm still not sure how I'm going to manage those every week, but I'll do my best. Took about 3 hours, all told.
  • We're going out for dinner tomorrow night. My mom thinks we're crazy (she did last year, too), but that's alright.
  • DH wants to empty our bedroom tomorrow, clean the floor, and completely rearrange the furniture. I'm finally at a point where I'm not worried the baby will decide to come early, but I've apparently impressed him often enough that he is in a bit of a panic of getting the room ready for her NOW. I'm not going to get in his way -- I will feel better when it's done.
  • Did I mention I also shopped on Thursday? No wonder I'm so freaking tired today. Found a great changing table/cabinet that almost matches our bedroom furniture and will hold her clothes and diapers. It has to be put together, which is also on the plan for tomorrow.
  • I'm tired and going to bed. The boys will be up early, I'm sure ;)

    Happy Easter, Mel. I'm three sheets to the wind here - celebrating with a bit of Merlot...
    reading some blogs of interest - one of which is yours, of course...
    Less than prepregnancy weight? Hey. I wish...

    I'm so excited for you guys - that's why I keep coming back to check on you. A girl. Wow.

    I wish you the bestest of Easters and I hope that all goes well in the weeks ahead.

    Your little daughter will need to be checked for diabetes eventually too -- you know that. I had almost 11 pound baby with George and we're always checked for diabetes. So far, so good - but I don't know.... it runs in my mom recently diagnosed...probably me eventually.

    Happy Easter girl!

    Probably more than you realize - I use bloglines now instead of a blogroll - but I might do a blogroll too eventually...
