Had another checkup last Tuesday. I had been so worried about my sugar levels from my previous checkup that this whole month I've been so good about staying away from sugar (no more juice, pb&j, chocolate...) so I had my fingers crossed when the midwife went to check the urine, thankfully everything was fine and perfectly normal. So I'm still being cautious, but I know it's not because I'm developing gestational diabetes or anything terrible like that, just something I ate. I had only gained 1 pound since last checkup which raised some eyebrows, but I assured them that I'm eating, eating well actually, I'm never hungry for long and I eat 3 solid meals a day so I'm not worried. I already feel as big as a horse so am sorta glad I'm not gaining tons anyway. I had a hard time gaining weight with G2 also and she ended up being 8 lb, 10 oz so certainly didn't suffer. My fundus measured 28 cm (at 27 weeks), and baby's heartrate was 144.

My kids seem to be getting so loving toward me and the baby. G1 will say "Mommy, I love you, and I love your baby," or "Mommy, I hope your baby is healthy." G2 hugs and kisses me a whole lot (how sweet) and kisses and talks to the baby while she's sitting on my lap. I'm so pleased and happy about her potty training, she's really turned the corner. No more accidents, no more pooping in her pants, so hoorray for G2!!

I'm trying to get my ducks in a row to start a website design company geared at individuals and small businesses. I'm having the hardest time coming up with stuff to say about myself and my company, I should probably give a holler to my friend who's into PR, I know she could help. I want to make a tri-fold brochure that I can send out to some small businesses in the area and maybe distribute on mailboxes in some more affluent neighborhoods near me. We just really need something to augment our income right now. I was hoping to be able to trade services with my midwives and help them build a site in exchange for a lower fee, but that kinda fell thru so now I need to do something else.

The kids and I are fighting colds, not real bad ones, but runny/stuffy noses, that's pretty much it really. I was hoping I wouldn't get it and even did the peroxide in my ears trick and sucked on a zinc losenge, but I'm still kinda stuffy myself. I felt actually pretty normal after a nap this afternoon, but I feel it coming back. Oh well, it's really not that terrible and I know it'll be gone in a few days. It could be so much worse!
