I really appreciate your advice! I am a scared mouse.

I found out through a friend that I don't need to attend a class in person. I can do it online. They have all the videos and information available at my fingertips. If I have questions, I can visit if I wish or simply email.

My hope one day is for doctors, NP's, etc. have office hours that are open after 5pm and on Saturdays for working Mom's!

That is great Lora!! Glad you are staying informed. All of the books and everything helped me to understand what was happening to my body.

Today marks 31 weeks and Cassandra is very active. I feel pretty good considering my belly grows larger with each passing day and it is getting harder to walk or get out of bed. My doctor's appointment is today so we shall see how that goes.

Thank you!

Are you using the right cleanser for your face? Some of them are quite harsh!

Yes been to the endo and dermatologist-its hormones. I have prescription face wash and antibiotic cream I am so oily nothing is too rough for me-ugh the oil pours out of my skin-so ready for real menopause. Make sure you take some pics of your face now-it is beautiful! I did and am glad I did now when I look back at them.

Isn't it amazing how you fall in love with your baby even before they are born? That is one amazing feeling-take pics and write down your thoughts for her baby book.

Spending a quiet evening at home. I am making macaroni and cheese casserole for the hubby and waiting for my brother in law and niece to arrive from Virginia.

The ultra sound went great! Cassandra is an active healthy baby. She is already at 4.8lbs.! My husband was so excited when he saw her moving around.

The one thing I am surprised with is I thought I would have a gained a ton of weight? In the course of a month, I have only gained 5lbs. That's it??

That's good! As long as your doc says you and Cassie are healthy don't worry-pregnancy doesn't always mean a huge weight gain for everyone. My son was 3 weeks overdue and I gained 21-I was obese and my ob gyn said sometimes obese women do not gain a great amount of weight. Then the last week I was so uncomfortable I actually lost 5 down to 16 lbs. You might gain a bit during your last month as the baby gets bigger.

It's only Wednesday and the week is dragging!

The only highlights of my week so far are pumpkin donuts and seeing my husband when he picks me up after work from the train station.

I noticed my little bun has become quite active in the early mornings. She woke me up twice. Once around 4 and then again at 5.

Lora I love the name Cassandra! I have two girls, Laura (I chose name) and Amber (dh chose name). If I had had one more girl, Cassandra would've been her name.
I know it's all so surreal to you, but just think of your end result! I didn't know you guys just had your one year anniversary, congrats!

Let me begin by stating...I AM HAPPY TODAY IS FRIDAY! Ugh! I am so tired of work! My stress levels are high and the baby brain fog is becoming worse. I can barely focus on what I am doing anymore.

Today, I have to go to the Doctor's early to get a glucose test but I can't find the paperwork for it. I hope they have it on file!

TTYL!

Don't stress yourself out!!! Just remain calm and let someone else handle the tough stuff. It is so not worth it. Hoping you have a good Dr's appmt!!!

Thanks, CeeCee!

As you can see from my avatar, the baby has finally moved into the downward position! Woo Hoo! The doctor confirmed this yesterday while we listened to her heartbeat!
