I'm almost done growing a human.

A couple of weeks ago I had my blood drawn for the pregnancy diabetes thing.
I didn't pass the hour test so I had to take the three hour fasting one.
I took the three hour fasting test the day after we got back from Stagecoach & according to my OB failed that by one point. They gave me a monitor to check my blood four times a day. I also attended a class on how to eat; which was awesome. It's not what you would expect a 'diabetes' class to be but the plan is something that we could & might follow after the baby is born.
We are about to enter into our 34th week Wensday & my ob told me that she won't stop my labor after 34 weeks! That made me super anxious and nervous all at the same time. I can completely feel the braxton hicks when they happen .. so this is getting exciting. Per our lamas class I downloaded a contraction app.. and so far it's the last thing I think of when I have one. Good thing they are still braxon hicks status because the baby needs to cook for at least three more weeks.
 I would say that we are ready. We have everything that we need. I have a couple more things to get before I have the baby for myself... but otherwise we are golden. I do still want to get a humidifier for the babies room & a hospital outfit ... but really all the 'needs' are taken care of. I have already packed the babies diaper bag {btw picking out first outfits are hard!} I'll start putting the hospital bags together for the husband & I within the next week. Right now while the hubby is on leave we are focusing on reorganizing and cleaning. After he goes back to work our old roomie M is flying in for two weeks & then the Baby P count down really starts!
I honestly hate that people keep asking if we 'are anxious' or if we 'are ready'. I get that things will change. I understand that our lives will be forever altered. I get that sleeping in is going to be a thing of the past. At the end of the day.. after everything we have been through to get to this point.. I hate those two questions.

The countdown to my favorite holiday is about to start.. so until then we have our last lamas class on Tuesday.. a 4D ultrasound on Wednesday {so come back on Thursday!} and then the count down for Baby P's arrival really begins!!!!
