Baby Room

Today I painted the baby room. I feel like we are finishing the room in plenty of time, but we have talked to a lot of other couples that are about the same due date as us and it seems like everyone else has already finished their rooms. We decided to paint the room a creamy yellow color and paint the base boards and crown moulding a pastel blue (I will post pics when it is finished). With all the work I have been doing on the baby room, I decided to buy myself a Nintendo Wii. I knew it would be fun for me, but I had no idea how much my wife would like it. Every night we play tennis or baseball against each other...and it is sad to say that we are sore due to all our Wii playing.

We also started our labor and delivery classes last week. I feel as though I have read all there is to know about pregnancy and delivery, but the class definitely had information that I hadn't read or thought about. We have 5 more classes and I am looking forward to all of them!

Sexy Pregnant Woman!

So the results are in, and the wife does not have gestational diabetes. We were very happy to hear the good news. So we basically got to spend our day off at the hospital for nothing and we will probably have to pay for the tests because our insurance sucks, but better safe than sorry.

We have hit the 28 week mark and things are good. Aside from the gestational diabetes scare, the wife is feeling the best she has felt all pregnancy. Most people claim that the nausea and morning sickness goes away at 13 to 16 weeks, but it was more like 21 weeks for us. So now the only thing that is happening is the wife is starting to get bigger (I mean that in a cute way, not in a big and fat way). So she is having a little bit of a hard time getting in and out of beds, chairs, cars, etc. She also can't really see her feet or bend down to tie her shoes very well. She is having a hard time comprehending how things will be when she gets even bigger...she thinks she will just be this big blob that can't do anything. I, however, think she looks really cute. There is something about a pregnant woman that is just sexy!!

Gestational Diabetes Test

I am writing this blog from the waiting room at the hospital lab because I have four hours to kill. At our 27 week appointment my wife had her glucose test done and the number came in a little high. We arrived at the hospital at 9:30 this morning and the wife had her blood drawn after fasting since midnight. We had 45 mins that we could leave and then when we came back we would have to stay for four hours. We hurried home and grabbed the laptop, some movies, and some magazines and then headed back to the hospital. At 10:40 the wife drank the sugar drink given to her by the lab tech so they know exactly how much sugars are in her body. Right now it is almost 11:40 and she will have her blood drawn, and then it will be drawn again at 12:40 and 1:40. For those of you who have been reading this blog since the beginning, you know that the wife HATES having her blood drawn. So this is basically the worst day of her life. I have to admit though, she is being a real trooper and is becoming a pro at having her blood drawn. As for me, I am just tagging along for morale support and I am just happy that the hospital has wireless internet. Only a few more hours to go!!!
