7th Prenatal Visit (I think...)

Today I had another appointment at Kaiser. Still not thrilled with it but I guess any doctor is better than no doctor. I had to do my glucose test and get blood drawn. I don't know when the results of that will come in but I'll check online in a couple of days. I think I gained another 4 lbs. Not too bad this time and doesn't surprise me. I've been eating everything! Blood pressure was good and baby's heart was nice and strong. I will start going every 2 weeks now! I can't believe how time has flown! I'm in my third trimester and quite honestly I am feeling it. Sleeping is so difficult because I am so uncomfortable. I don't remember having quite such a hard time with Weston. Oh well, I can bear it another 3 months knowing I'll forget all the discomfort as soon as I set eyes on my precious little boy. 

Weston never ceases to amaze me. He's getting over a double ear infection and even with all that, he still maintains such a positive attitude. Don't get me wrong, we have our bad days, but he is such a pleasant child. Even the doctor couldn't believe how happy he was considering that both his ears were infected. I thought he had given up formula and the bottle for good, but turns out he just didn't want to suck because it was bothering his ears, so now he's back to about 20 oz. a day. I'll be switching him to milk soon though. For the first time the other day (at the library) he let go of a shelf he was holding onto and stood for a couple seconds. He's done it a few times since then. This is good progress toward walking...yay!!! Speaking of the library, he absolutely loves to go! It has new and exciting toys and all these other little people walking around that are his size! I enjoy taking him and meeting moms. Of course, most people look at me like I'm crazy with my big ol' belly and my 10 1/2 month old on my hip but whatever! I couldn't be happier with the lot I was given! 

You know what's really frustrating? When you are in complete nesting mode but can't find the time or energy to actually nest! I want my house like spotless but can't seem to get it there. I want to get Grayson's room together but that's proving difficult since we don't really have anything yet. Not that we need anything really, but we will be getting furniture and all down the road at some point. 

Well I have to wake Weston up now so he'll go to sleep for the night in an hour. Til next time!! :)
