Trudging Forward

Things are still good. The blood pressure is staying on the borderline which means that I don't need to increase my dosages yet. My blood glucose readings have been good too. Baby girl is very active and very big. She's in the 90th percentile! My OB has started seeing me weekly at this point. My feet and legs look like tree trunks from all the fluid retention. I can only fit my huge shoes. I ended up buying a pair of guy's flip flops because pre-pregnancy I wore an 11, and I can't find any women's shoes that fit in the store. My doc is ready for me to stop working, but I'm holding out as long as I can. Even though every morning it's pretty damn hard to get out of bed and get dressed. But I want to have as much time at home with my Princess as possible. So I'm down to about 30 something working days until I will start my maternity leave if all continues to go well.

I placed a few ads online for the nursery furniture that we used for Fuzzy. So far we've sold the glider/ottoman. Hopefully the prospective buyer for the crib, changing table, and dresser will come by tomorrow and take them all! We need them gone so Rob will have enough room to start painting and putting new furniture together. I've started seriously nesting all over my house, and I know that it will just get worse. LOL.

We've gotten some potentially good news on Fuzzy's case, and hopefully this will cause the judge to see the light and start the termination process for him. He's turning 2 years old next month. It just doesn't seem like it's been 2 years. My little Fuzzy has changed so much.

Things have calmed down a little but around here. Fuzzy is feeling better. Rob and I are working more and more on the nursery. We picked out paints, and now I'm just trying to figure out what paint technique we want to do. I'm adding some finishing touches on my baby registries, and a good friend of ours has already claimed the crib we want. I'm trying to sell our old crib, changing table, dresser, and rocker on craigslist. It's been a few days with lots of inquiries, but no luck yet. I'm still not sure when I will have a baby shower or who will host it. I think people are afraid to bring it up to me because of my history. I don't know. I guess we will see what happens over the next several weeks.
