Three (3!) Things Thursday

Totally a pregnancy-related post. SORRY!

1. Today is my glucose screening test. I hope I pass. In my whole life, I’ve only failed one test, I think (if it’s more, I’ve blocked the memory & don’t need to be reminded!). I know this isn’t something I can study for, but I’m nervous!  Wish me luck (and no gestational diabetes)!

2. Now that I’m in my 3rd trimester and sporting a ginormous baby bump (one I’m sure will only continue to grow!) I was curious to see how much I’ve changed since the end of my 1st trimester. Fortunately for you, I have pictures:

~Week 14:

 

And now – same outfit, same pose, 13 weeks later:

 

That’s just crazy, right?

 

3. I am alternately excited and terrified about what will happen in ~13 more weeks. Not so much the part where the baby comes out (I understand that’s pretty much inevitable at this point), but the part where the hospital is going to let me take a newborn home with me! Without a license!  CRAZY! I have such weird dreams (mostly awful) about how I will completely fail as a mother and caretaker, but when I’m awake & my subconscious isn’t fucking with me, I’m pretty excited to meet little Alvie Bean & cuddle him on the outside (which has to be waaaaay more comfortable than cuddling him inside my rib cage).  However, if he looks like this when he’s born, I am going to demand a refund.

  1. Those pictures are crazy! What a difference a trimester makes, right? And you are going to be a wonderful caretaker. Everyone has those dreams, I know I did. But I promise the instinct is amazing. The first time you hold your son you will know exactly what to do. I didn’t believe it either, but it’s true.

  2. It’s amazing what happens in 13 weeks! Good luck on the glucose test!

  3. the bump looks good on you! Can’t wait to see Alvie!

  4. You’re going to be such a great mama. Seriously. Alvie is so lucky!

  5. Hi! looking good, girl! i hope you pass your glucose screen, but don’t worry too much if you don’t. i totally failed mine but passed the 3 hr test. i know many people who had the same experience. lots of false positives on that screen. i took advantage of the 3 hr test to catch up on some net flix dvd’s. would love to know what kind of baby accoutrements you are planning on (stroller, etc.)!
