Less than two months to go!!!! The countdown is on.

Reality about having an extra little one is starting to hit our little family. In a good way, of course. Chris and I had bought a pair of bunk beds and planned on Conner using the top bunk (unbunked). Of course, I didn't like the color of the bed (they are white and just look girly...my boys are manly boys) so I had to paint them a dark brown. That is finally finished and we moved the bed into the bedroom...which we found out is a pretty small bedroom. Between a huge dresser, a good sized crib, and a new twin sized bed, Conner can barely squeeze a toe in...let alone his preggo Mommy trying to sit on the floor to read a book at night. Okay, so it's not that bad, but we are now rearranging things. The dresser is moving downstairs and an old dresser is coming upstairs to the bedroom. *sigh* Will we ever get done? Here's a picture of Conner's new bedspread. :)
I'll get actual pictures once things are a little cleaner and more organized in there. For now, I am trying to ignore the entire room until that dresser is out of there...which is why you find me here blogging while Conner is napping. I really do need to accomplish something now, though. Wish me luck!

High Risk??!!

Well, just to prove that no pregnancy is alike, I just found out that I have gestational diabetes. Yuck. My blood sugar was one point above what it was supposed to be on my three hour glucose tolerance test and I am now considered a "high risk pregnancy." That means more tests, more sonograms, more monitoring. Ugh. The good thing is, I can easily control it with diet and exercise, which I have been keeping up with pretty well already. I had noticed that I have gotten bigger sooner with this one than with Conner without really gaining much weight at all, but kind of wrote it off as it being my second pregnancy. So, nothing to be too terribly concerned about as long as I do my part, but still a little scary. After going to a diabetes specialist yesterday, I now know everything there is to know about it! Only two months to go!!
