Getting Closer

Little Ezra is due on May 15th, so we are within 3 months of meeting him!  I'm looking forward to having a snuggly, sweet baby to nuzzle!

I went to the doctor the last time and I was supposed to get a glucose test.  However, when I got there at 4:15pm, they told me that they only do the glucose testing before 2:30.  They failed to tell me that the last time, but anyway.   I can't really afford to take any more days off of work because of all the snow days.  I will be using almost every sick day just to cover my maternity leave from around my due date to June 12th.  So, I was frustrated.  However, my doctor is so sweet.  He gave me an order for the glucose test, the glucose, and told me to see if I can find a place that will do it closer to home.  So, I have been calling around and trying to find somewhere.  I thought that the birth center would do it again (you know, since they did it for me with Jonah), but they wouldn't do it.  So, I called LabCorps and they will do it!  I am planning to go on Friday morning and get it done because Jesse doesn't have to be a work until later and he can keep Jonah on that day.

I have made the switch from sleeping on my stomach to sleeping on my side now.  It was a sad day.  Now, I have to sleep with a pillow between my legs.  It helps keep me from tossing and turning.  I've actually still been sleeping pretty well, even on my side.

My back has been hurting a bit lately.  Usually after a long day at school, then cooking dinner, washing dishes, folding laundry, etc.  I need to do better about not doing too much.

I have been working on decorating Ezra's room.  I sewed him a curtain valance (maybe I will post photos soon).  I also bought him a poster for one of his walls.  It turned out really cute!   Now, I'm working on painting him 4 canvases for the wall above the crib.  I am making each one a letter of his name....and I think I'm going to include a reptile on each one.  Right now, I'm thinking an alligator, a chameleon, a frog and a turtle.
