I passed the three hour test, even with the throwing up drama. Whew! That noise you folks in the Midwest heard was my sigh of relief. So unless something changes, I won’t have to re-do the test. Thank goodness! I’m now 30 weeks pregnant and the baby weighs almost three pounds. We had our first childbirth class today, with the second half next Saturday. There were 12 couples in the class and 9 of us are having boys! Afterward we went to Kate’s in Everett for some falafel. Yum. We are big falafal fans but hadn’t had any in way too long. Then it was off to Babies R Us to order our glider rocker. Many of you know that I had earmarked some of the settlement money from my car accident for this purchase. Well, coming up on two years after the accident, we finally reached that settlement and the glider shopping commenced! Jeff can’t figure out why we didn’t get a glider earlier, as he figures it will be just perfect for football watching. Hopefully the glider arrives before the baby does. Jeff is going to work on painting the nursery tomorrow. It is so fun to plan how it will look and see it all coming together.
You’ve probably heard about all the flooding we’ve had out here, just after we finally cleared out all the snow and ice. For a couple days this week it was almost impossible to get into or out of Western Washington via roads, as I-5 was closed in the southern part of the state, and all three mountain passes were closed due to avalanches and avalanche danger. Things are slowly getting back to normal, and we are very thankful that we live on higher ground and were not flooded.
Here’s the 30 week belly shot:
