We have furniture!

The furniture is here and my wonderful hubs spent the weekend putting it together and dragging it around the room for me:) I'm still not sure on how I want the set up, but I think Barry secretly loves scooting it around, over and over again, lmao.

It is prettier in person than online and is made of real wood, not pressed pulp, so I'm really glad that we decided to get it. Now I need the rest of the material to GET HERE, so that mom can start on the bedding. It was really weird to actually put baby things in the drawers... I may never get used to the idea.

Let's see, this week is parent teacher conferences, and I'm already exhausted. Late nights are not my friend. Plus, my aunt and cousin are staying the weekend at my house and they arrive Thursday when I'm still working... BOOOOOO! So, every spare minute is pent with me running around like a lunatic trying to clean, organize and take my mini BabiesRus store upstairs one item at a time.

Which brings me to this.... pregnancy, back pain and falling-out-crotch pain do not mix with steep stairs.

I passed!

WOOHOO! Even though my dr's were all doom and gloom about my glucose test, I passed with no problem. Failing is 140 and over and I had a 99! I'm stoked. I guess I'm doing something right, lol

Barry and I decided to order new furniture today! WE were planning to re-purpose a few pieces for the baby's room, but it ended up being a fiasco, so we bit the bullet and ordered a complete new set. I'm excited b/c it's exactly what I wanted with no painting/sanding required, THANK GOD!

I'll post pictures when it gets here~!!

Dreading tomorrow...

Tomorrow is my glucose test. Let's see... I'm overweight, have PCOS, am extremely insulin resistant and prediabetic. FABULOUS. Can I add in a few more risk factors, probably >;-/

I am dreading the drink b/c I've heard such dreadful things about it... plus I am sooo worried that I will fail the test. I am REALLY trying hard to eat balanced meals with lots of fruits and veggies... but I guess only time will tell.

I have had a bumpy road to get this far, so I am requesting smooth sailing around this turn. That's not too much to ask is it??

On a happy note, I finally got the permanent filling/crown on my problem tooth today. After months of pain/swelling/inflammation etc... it finally feels like nothing. Good ole, nothing. That's how all teetn should feel!

Yes, I hear crickets.

I have been blog slacker EXTRAORDINAIRE! There has been no good reason. I simply got wrapped up in life... and thankfully, it's been going very well lately. We found out that Baby Boomer is all boy. Barry skipped cloud nine and is sitting happily on cloud 10. I think I'm still in shock over it all, so I'm still just so thrilled to be pregnant every day, that there isn't much room for more excitement:)

Also, we have finally chosen a name... this little guy will be Miles Hensley Boomer. Hensley is my mother's maiden name and the family name of my grandparents that helped raised me. In the end, I let Barry make the final decision, but I can honestly say that I am thrilled with his decision.

We finally got registered, have the baby's room painted, have most of the furniture either bought or in mind... whew. Now we need to actually get the furniture in the room and ready! I am 24 weeks as of tomorrow, so in reality, we are down to at most 16 weeks... and that could vary greatly! Anyway, now that I am over the "who wants to hear about my fears of having a m/c", I will start posting more about our journey.

We have so much to do, so much to learn, and so much to experience. I am SO EXCITED!!
