Baby Stuff: Baby Weight x 200

First of all, I'm going to take the opportunity to publicly thank my friends who came to my baby shower today. I had an awesome time and am so unbelievably grateful for all the stuff, excited to use it on the baby, and lucky to have supportive wonderful friends.

Today was the first of three baby showers (seriously, I don't think that's justified, but my friends and family are kind of scattered around, so...yeah). We played Jeopardy and The Price is Right, ate a ton of delicious snack food, and had what I considered a pretty good time. I'm always apprehensive about showers, because it feels like an occasion for a person to say "Hey! Come to my party and bring me presents!" That's why I don't like birthday parties either, and why I stopped having them in middle school, or at least trying to combine them with New Year's so people wouldn't feel like they had to bring me presents. That might be weird, but it's how I feel. Anyway, it was a lot of fun, and my friends are amazing. It's terrifying to think that in a few months I'm going to have a baby WHO IS GOING TO NEED ALL OF THIS STUFF. Because there is a lot of it.

Brandon just told me I should write a book about being pregnant: "Like that one book you read, only it's your book and you get the money!"

In medical news, I had my glucola test on Wednesday, and I am proud to announce that I passed. I do not have gestational diabetes. Also, I don't need to be too worried about my blood pressure--it's at a managed level--and as long as I'm driving, moving after the baby arrives is cool. You can't fly with an infant under eight weeks old because of vaccination issues, and really you shouldn't take them anywhere with lots of people and their potential diseases, but driving is A-OK. I'm getting tired of waiting to hear about Brandon's job and I think it's going to get to a point where I stop thinking about it because doing so is too stressful, and right around the time I start to forget about it we'll hear something. That tends to happen to me. Still, it would be nice to know if I need to start assembling a nursery here or putting things in boxes to move.
