Nice to hear from you, Juls
. I really haven't had anything to say because things are going pretty smoothly right now.
What are you doing for the heartburn? I take Zantac at bedtime and that at least ensures that I get a good night's sleep. If the heartburn gets bad in the afternoon I might take it a little earlier.
Dd keeps asking, "Is it January yet?" So cute. She knows that Christmas has to come first, and last night she said she had a dream about Christmas, eating candy canes and getting presents.
I saw the nurse at my doctor's office last week and she said everything looks great. The weight gain has plateaued a bit so I'm right back on track. The next thing is the GTT for me, which I am determined to refuse. At least, I'm determined to refuse to drink that nasty glucola. I'd rather monitor my blood sugars four times a day than drink that stuff even once. Blech!
I have been trying to figure out a good way all summer to tell folks at church that I'm pregnant. It's strange, but our structures just don't lend themselves to such an announcement. You'd think... But... Well, anyhow, there was an all-church picnic today and I just wore a really tight dress, and it finally became obvious, at least to some people. Enough that I think now it will percolate through the grapevine. LOL.
Do you have any travel plans coming up? I was just in Chicago with dd for a few days (about a 6-hour drive, plus stops) and I'm thinking about going back at the end of October when dh has a business trip there. He's got two nights at the Omni Hotel downtown, and that might just be too fun to pass up. But it's in another six weeks; I'll be just on the verge of my third trimester, and hoping that car travel is still comfortable for that long. I'd stay an extra couple of days to make the drive worth it -- we used to live there and still have lots of friends. I hate air travel even under the best of circumstances so being pregnant just makes it easy to say no. The train would be an option if it didn't roll through here in the middle of the night each way.
