Today was a very busy day and thanks to the Apple n Pork Festival Seth and I barely saw each other. Hence, this very poor quality photo in which I can hardly hold my eyes open, let alone smile.
This picture almost didn’t happen. And it’s not because of pregnancy brain. It’s because Seth and I were not home (at the same time) until about 7:30pm. This week was full of many more emotions (than usual): we found our nursery furniture (for a steal!) but also attended a funeral (bring on the tears). I continue to be increasingly uncomfortable and I think I have finally experienced my first true episode of heartburn. As I enter my last week in the 20s it is beginning to seem very real that our baby girl will be joining us soon.
I’ve been sporadically looking on craigslist for a crib. To be honest, I had given up hope and was planning on just getting an IKEA crib. Tonight, in a spirit of boredom I got on craigslist only to see the furniture set pictured above was for sale. It was the item that had most recently been listed. Now, I’ve seen some decent stuff before and I’ve thought about contacting the lister, but nothing has ever made me pull the trigger. This set though, I actually showed to Seth and asked what he thought about trying to check it out. He gave me the green light so I texted the lister to see if it was still available. After a little bit of back and forth we set a time to go to their house and check out the furniture a couple hours later. Thanks to modern technology, I knew that they had an iPhone, which to me was a good sign. When they sent me their address then I was feeling really good because it appeared to be in a very nice subdivision.
Once we arrived at their house, there were a ton of people outside, and they were all super friendly! The furniture was sitting in the garage and it looked even better in person. I inspected the crib for bite marks (none!) and sat in the glider (comfy but supportive!). We were sold. Within seconds we had everything loaded into the Jeep. One of the guys there asked me if I was just always of craigslist looking for stuff and I admitted nope, this was completely coincidental that I had been on there so soon after they listed. So, for $300 we got everything above and it is all in excellent condition. Now I can stop freak out mode about where the baby will sleep. Just kidding, we already had someone give us a pack n play, so worst case scenario she would have had to sleep in it.
Last week was a rough one…doing the glucose test and getting the rhogam shot wiped me out. Almost literally. The good news is a little over a day later they called to tell me I am normal. Or at least in terms of my blood sugar I am normal. All other areas continue to be up for debate. I’m starting to feel more uncomfortable more often, which is fitting since I am officially into my third trimester.
