Week 26 is here already! Technically I’ll be in week 27 in 2 days…just shows me how fast time is flying by!
Here’s the money shot.
On Friday I took the gestational diabetes test. Basically when you’re around 26 weeks pregnant you go into the lab, drink this drink,
And then you wait an hour, then they draw your blood. If you pass, nothing changes, but if your blood sugar is over 140, you have to do the test again. Except the second time you have to do it 3 times, so 3 hours, and 3 blood draws. I’m hoping I pass and it’s not a thing.
I had lunch with my mom on Saturday, which was really nice.
We stopped at this little ice cream shack on the way home. They have homemade ice cream, and they put a freshly made waffle on top.
My mother’s boyfriend was very impressed! Hehe!
This morning I went for a walk with Miss Jessica.
I had to burn off some of those waffle calories. And I also had a realization that I needed to start tracking my calories with My Fitness Pal. I’m on there, my name is Tiffersknees. Look me up! I stepped on the scale this morning and know that I need to be more aware of my caloric intake.
And the nursery is really coming together.
There are a few more things I need to do with the walls, but I’m feeling good about the superhero bedding.
So I’m looking into getting a treadmill from Craigslist. I figure most people who are selling their treadmill probably haven’t used it much, and is in good condition, and I can get it at a good price. I’m not in a huge hurry, but I’m thinking when I go on pregnancy leave after I have the baby, I can at least walk on the treadmill while the baby sleeps/is not screaming.
Am I being completely unrealistic in working out with a new born? What did you other mamas do after your baby was born?
Have you ever bought anything off Craigslist? Any tips?
Do you have a treadmill that you run on and would recommend?
