The Countdown Begins

...less than 100 days left til our Snowflake's due date! EEK!

Even scarier, I will be starting a new job on 11/2. Let's hope November turns out to be my lucky month for employment, as June and July sure aren't! For a little backstory, I started with Ford in NOVEMBER 2004. Employment lasted for nearly five years until I was laid off. Four and a half, to be exact. Missed out on my plaque (punks!)!

I have signed us up for our birthing classes starting next month and they will run into early December. Let's hope we don't forget everything between then and Snowflake's arrival. lol With my pregnancy brain, you just never know. Can't exactly find a pre-registration option on the hospital's web site (that I am now about 95% sure I want to go to), so I guess we'll have to inquire about that when we go to "school."

My next appointment to check on Snowflake is on 10/29 and on that day I have the evil glucose test (bleah). The orange stuff is in the fridge. Please pray that I pass! Wasn't the m/s enough?? Not only that, but my first two weeks on the job are training and 8-5. It'd be a pain in the to get a day off to flood my body with even more sugar and starve for a few hours. But hey, ya gotta do, what ya gotta do. And Miss Snowflake comes first.

Then I believe this will be my last four-week break between appointments, at the end of November I will start with the bi-weekly appointments already. EEK! Where's the time going?

Let the games begin!

Congrats on the new job!

The I'm told the GTT is better now than it was when I had to take it with Derek and Jake. I failed the first one with Derek and had to go back and take the three hour one, but easily passed it. So if you fail it, don't be too worried until you have the follow up on. +++ vibes that you won't fail the first one.

Kim you and I always have appointments within a day of each other, LOL!!! My next appointment is the 28th of October. I, too, have to take the GD test AND get a Rhogam shot. Joy of joys!

Congrats on the new job. Very exciting! I know you've got to be breathing a sigh of relief.

I can't believe we are in the final countdown. Where has the time gone???
