I am now a week into my third trimester. Wow, where has time gone?!?!? It is flying by! I had my 1 hour glucose test about 2 weeks ago. Failed it. Did the 3 hour last week and PASSED! But man, it made me so sick to my stomach. It was awful this time. But thankfully I passed and it is over.
Last week I started getting a head cold that turned into a nasty sinus infection that then aggravated a tooth that must have had a cavity. The pain was so bad that I spent most of yesterday in tears. I was kind of scared because infections can cause preterm labor and who knows what else when pregnant and I just wanted to get that sucker out. I needed a root canal or extraction. Bye, bye little tooth! I had it pulled this afternoon and now I am dealing with that pain. The dentist refused to give me any pain meds since I am pregnant so I called my OB and he hooked me up. It is just Tylenol 3 but hey, it is better than nothing. I hate taking all of this crap while pregnant but pain increases my BP and with my history of pre-e I don't want to play around with HBP.
On a good note, I got Olivia's car seat. For FREE! I won it actually. Last week my sister needed to run to Babies R Us and I tagged along. We had no idea that they had some kind of event going on and there were vendors and such there. One table held a raffle for an infant car seat. I didn't even realize what it was for, I just entered it and later my sister told me what it was for. I really, really hoped that I would win and I DID!!! It is a Graco that retails for $140. I don't need a whole lot for the baby, but this was one of two big items that I needed so it was a huge blessing. They also gave out gift bags and my sister and I each got one and it included a Dr. Bro.wn's bottle, coupons, wet wipes and samples. My sister gave me her stuff so two free bottles. Pretty cool!!
I still need to finish the nursery and buy a few more things. I am still working on my cloth diaper stash and that is going slow. I am having a shower at my church and will get disposable diapers which is great and I will use those the first month or two, but I want to get my cloth diaper stash built up for after that. But things are coming along and Olivia will be here is 12 weeks! Yikes!!! So exciting!!!
