Finding a little moment in the chaos

This baby likes to steal the show already!

Things are a little chaotic. I’ve been a bad blogger in every respect recently, but proper service will resume ASAP. I have my grandmother’s funeral tomorrow and am back to school after half term on Wednesday, with loads of work still to do.

But amongst the chaos, I managed to squeeze in a walk today in the glorious sunshine and took some time to listen to some music and revel in the fact that I am now 30+1 weeks pregnant. 30 weeks seemed like quite a milestone for some reason. I’m into single figures of weeks left.

This morning I had a glucose tolerance test which was really horrid. I couldn’t eat from 10pm last night, then had blood taken at 8am, followed by a nasty tasting sugary drink. I then had to sit in the waiting room for two hours doing nothing. Luckily I’d taken some work to do, but after about half an hour I felt awful. I felt faint and started sweating, and was pretty sure I was going to be sick. I spent the next 10 minutes sitting slumped on the floor in the doctors’ toilets, thinking I was going to throw up. Luckily I didn’t and started to feel ok again. It was very weird. At the end of the two hours I had to have more blood taken and was then allowed to go home.

What a rubbish morning.

So the walk with the dog really cheered me up – it was just what I needed.
