Yeah nice name Athena! We picked Joel

I don't have to do the gtt test unless midwives pick up sugar in my urine. Yippee! Don't envy you ladies. Went to do blood test today, they stabbed me twice and couldn't get any blood! So I have to go back I always have this problem, it's not fun. Last time I got stabbed FIVE times, I wasn't having that again!

little_lady, I let them know which arm to use and I advise them they only have ONE shot!!! I'm not 80 years old (no offense to the elderly) so my veins are prominent!!! I let them know if they are not good at drawing blood, don't try get someone who is. I DESPISE being stuck multiple times, moving the needle because you lost the vein, prodding, and all the extra foolishness. I don't like needles, which is part of the problem.

Nevertheless, I managed to do my glucose test this morning. Glad I finally did it to get it over with.

Lady I love Joel! It's always been on my "list"!

Thanks My real first name is very popular and growing up I was often 1 of 5 kids in class, sports teams, etc. all named the same thing and I just didn't want to do that to my kid. Our girl name was fairly original too--not weird (both are actually names and easily pronounceable), just not common!

This guy who took my blood this time has done it 2 other times and I've never had a problem with him. This time I knew it was going to bruise--it didn't hurt at all and he got it in one shot...until he took the needle out. I think he must have changed the angle before it cleared my arm this time! Last night it was sore as could be and I had a giant lump there, this morning I woke up to a small lump and a 5 inch bruise all up and down my vein. It's so pretty.

Tomorrow is my birthday AND we are headed for our 3D ultrasound tomorrow afternoon! And to locate some new maternity jeans...because all the ones I bought previously no longer fit. Shame! One of my biggest complaints about being pregnant is not having clothes that fit/are comfortable. It's so irritating!

I love my maternity clothes. They are very comfortable. This pregnancy I am much smaller. Some people say I have a small bump for 7 months. With my boys I was much, much bigger. My husband said to count my blessings before I wake up big as a house and add that to my list of complaints, ha! Both our boys name are different as well. For this little one we both came up with baby Dakota. But nothings set in stone, however I do know that will be apart of her name! So that's what we call her around the house.

Athena, good luck tomorrow and happy b-day, enjoy!

Happy birthday for tomorrow! (today!) And have fun at the ultrasound

Don't get me started on maternity clothes. I was a UK size 8 pre pregnancy and now I'm a size 12 up top and a maternity 10-12 below. My bump and boobs are huge, I look like an egg on matchsticks lol. Just wishing the last weeks away now!

Love Dakota, I like slightly more unusual names too. Unfortunately Isabelle (my dd) is a really popular name now, I wish it wasn't. At least it's not Isabella I guess.
