10 weeks, and a lot left to do

Standard

I can’t believe we’re pretty much at the ten week mile marker. Ten weeks left before my due date! Praise the Lord for this gift He has given us!

With only ten weeks left, I really want to make sure every bit of my time is wisely used. Which probably means I need to stay off Pinterest more! A lot of last weeks goals were accomplished, though there were some that didn’t quite make it there. This week is a new week and we’re going to get things done! The past week did have a few positives. I met with the dietician to get a plan for gestational diabetes and found out I’ll have another ultrasound this week to make sure our little guy is growing appropriately. When I met with her and the staff there, I was taught how to test my sugar 4 times a day. Thankfully, my numbers were really well the rest of the week, so she’s cutting me back to only testing twice a day now. I’m very thankful for less finger pricks.

I was told that I exhaust some with my lists and all my cleaning, etc. My husband, who is very much accurate, says I have household ADHD. I start something, get distracted and then end up with a pile of clothes in the bathroom sink while I do something else. Having my goal list is the only way I stay semi-focused. And my house is no way spotless. I wish I could say it was. In fact, I will occassionally watch an episode of Hoarders to make myself feel better.)

Goals for 3/4- 3/10

-Reorganize laundry room – Halfway finished!

  1. I was just skimming down your list and noticed the nursing bra item. I would recommend that you definitely buy one, maybe two, now and then wait to buy any more. There is no telling how things will change in that area when your milk comes in. They, well, can take on a life of their own at that point. :) So I wouldn’t recommend sinking a lot of money into them before you know exactly what you are dealing with. Plus you will prob develop some definite preferences on how stretchy they are/should be and how they open (like flap down vs flap to the side). I do recommend finding a good nighttime nursing bra because sleeping in some bras can be downright painful, and believe me you don’t want to go w/o one. At first you may want and need to sleep in the full support day time bra, but in time you will want something soft/comfortable that just holds your nursing pads in place.
