Still doing well! Started getting extra monitoring now thanks to the GD and the little guy is the right way down, right on track and I'm in good shape. Probably past the major risk of GD escalation now too, so fingers crossed I should stay complication free. Still walking plenty and mostly sleeping okay. We're spending the holiday weekend up in Salem where I can watch Rob do DIY and "work on my paper" which is increasingly looking like it will not be finished before I head out on mat leave - I can finish my stuff but co-author reviews...well that's a different matter. Trying and mostly succeeding to be pretty zen about it all, and surprising myself by that!

Ignoring the news from back home but have changed my voting proxy to my sister given my parents my be out here if there's a General in October. That's all the energy I can give this total shit show right now.

Rob's parents arrive this week and house decorating begins in earnest. It will be fun to see how it all looks in a month's time!

We closed on a house in Salem yesterday! We won't be moving in for a little while yet, but I'm excited to have a garden again and commute by one of the more reliable branches of the commuter rail once I go back to work.

I have slept terribly two nights in a row so I am currently less excited about this than I should be! Last night I got reflux on lying down for the first time (which I guess actually makes me pretty lucky, it's late in the game!) and had to get up and drink ginger tea in the middle of the night.

The weather seems to have finally broken overnight and I am looking forward to being able to go outside this weekend!

So far though, third trimester is definitely my least favourite trimester. And it's all downhill from here... looking forward to the little guy making his appearance.

Feeling very third trimester now - looking forward to the weather cooling off! Blood sugar still looking great and the little guy is dancing most of the day. Yoga is basically just sitting and a little bit of bending but it feels good.

Not much to report! Getting bigger and going to work. Still feeling mostly intact and the blood sugar monitoring is showing no sign of a genuine problem, so Doctor and dietician are saying strong likelihood of no extra complications. Apparently 33/34 weeks is usually when the risk of escalation goes way down for GD, and that's not too far away.

Even had after dinner ice cream (small scoop with a walk there and back) and it was just fine :)

Still haven't really bought anything major that we need for the baby but we hopefully have bought a house (not closed yet, but I think we are past all the potential major hurdles), so that will help. There is no storage space in our current apartment!

Been living without a car too. It's really great but won't be possible in new house - though we will commute by train we'll need a car for shopping and baby appointments and stuff.
