Post written Nov. 4.
It’s official. I have only TWO pairs of work pants that still fit without assistance from the BeBand (Target’s belly band). And today is the first day that I’ve actually worn it since my favorite black maxi skirt was still damp in the dryer this morning. (It may not be the most flattering, but it is the most comfortable.)
I’m still fighting some indigestion/digestive issues which makes things mildly uncomfortable but all in all, it’s tolerable.
I scheduled my first tri screening for Down Syndrome and Trisomy 18, which will take place the same day as my next OBGYN appointment. Nothing like a day full of doctor’s appointments! I’m told they’re going to do a blood draw, which I’m not looking forward to since I just had one done at my first OB appointment last week. The nurses always have a hard time finding the vein and then they scold me for not drinking enough water (as hard-to-find veins typically means dehydration, I suppose.)
At this point, we’ve told most of our close friends, which is a whopping 8-10 people, plus our parents and Ryan’s sisters. I’m still debating on when to tell my grandparents. Maybe this weekend, if I can get my plan in place.
