Baby, Bloodwork And Voting

This morning I had another prenatal appointment. For some reason I thought 8:30 am would be a great idea and I was so wrong. We were rushing around to get out the door on time, and I was still about 7 minutes late for my appointment. I apologized to the receptionist but I didn't say anything to my doctor. Why? Because he's always about 10 minutes late to see me and never apologizes.

Oh yeah, I was petty.

So, here's the update.

I was really, really nervous to be weighed today considering I've been having regular late nights hanging out with these guys...

I love them like I love air. And my children.


Remember how I've only gained 3 lbs so far? Well, I've lost them. So now I sit at a zero weight gain. Being "fluffy" has it's perks. My doctor is not concerned at all, so I'm not either.

My blood pressure was high this morning but again, he wasn't too concerned. He sent me for more bloodwork and I have another bio-physical profile on the 9th. This will be ultrasound #6. I read somewhere that a lot of ultrasounds aren't that safe so I hope it's ok that I'm having yet another one.

Everything seems to be going well though and I go back in two weeks.

I stopped off to get my bloodwork done on my way home from work and I got The Stabber again. She is one rough technician. I kept leaning forward and psst-ing the technician covering the desk to help me. She didn't. She told me after she knew what I was doing but couldn't help me. She's a cold one.

There's something weird about that lab that I go to. Today there was a woman sitting across from me giving me dirty looks like I just ran over her dog or something. I was about to say something but was stopped in my tracks when the man next to me sneezed all over my arm, then stared at me blankly. I looked at him and said "I believe the word you're looking for is EXCUSE ME!"


Last stop on my way home was to vote. I love that I live in a country that allows me the freedom to say who I want as my Prime Minister. I can't wait until the polls close and the ballots are counted. There's no way I'll be able to stay up that late for the results so I'll have to be patient for tomorrow morning.


And that's a wrap.



  1. I just wanted to tell you that I love when I check my email and it says I have a comment from you. It makes my day. :) And the fact that you are getting to eat reece's without weight gain...what a blessing! I will be praying for your blood pressure and that sweet baby!

  2. Ugh!! I'm going to keep this short and suck!! I've already gained 7 pounds and I have a LOOOOONG way to go!!
    PS...I swear you always have the most interesting people sit by you! :)
    Rub the baby for me! :)

  3. Ewwww..... I'd have probably said something like, uh that's why we're taught to cover our mouths as children, Thank you very much!

  4. You totally should have given her an even dirtier look right back, and then coughed in the dudes face next to you!!
    I could totally see you "psssting" the lady at the desk...oh. my. gosh. Would I have loved to have seen it! I think we need a pic of you and your adorable belly.

  5. Wow....definitely sounds like an interesting place!!! Crazy!!!!
    As for ultrasounds....with both girls I had one every week from 28 wks until delivery (plus the regular 20 wk) It's fairly normal at the high risk clinic I went too. It's better to make sure that baby is still doing okay in there than not!!! Glad things are still going good and he's still in there cookin away!
