I’m trying to sound chipper.
Yesterday, I went to the baby doctor. I’ve gained 30+ pounds. My black boots don’t fit anymore because I am gaining weight in MY CALVES. AND, I had to take the glucose test (I chose orange flavor), AND I had to get my RhoGAM shot. In the buns (they say ‘hip’ but it’s totally not your hip) Uncalled for, I say.
SuperKid is just fine. The doc had to measure twice because SK was so incredibly active (I’m telling you: this kid is crazy.), but I am measuring right on 28 weeks. If all continues to go well, delivery will be on March 11, 2010. Insanity.
The trip home was… brutal. An hour of toodler-tantrum is interesting- fine, even– at home. But transfer that to a car with 350 miles to go and there are many tears. I think even my father cried at one point. Ry did well, bless her heart. It was just a rough trip. We’re glad to be home. We will not be driving beyond the city limits any time soon.
But speaking of trips, have y’all ever been to Seattle? My friend Annie Mulder lives there. No relation, unfortunately. She’s going to SPU and was the coxswain for the varsity rowing team this year. Personally, I think she’s fabulous. Look at her here in Kerry Park sporting her TexasNorth hoodie with pride! I may have clapped a little when I saw this. I think I’d like Seattle. Should it be on my ‘absolutely visit’ list? Love you, Annie. You do all us Mulders proud, ya hear?
