I had my monthly appointment today. Everything continues to look good. Next appointment, I have my glucose tolerance test.
We had a nice Thanksgiving at Allison's house in Champlin. The Albertville Outlet Mall opened at midnight for “Midnight Madness.” All of the girls took advantage of the late night shopping. There were a lot of people there –quite the lineup of cars after we exited the interstate, but we arrived shortly before midnight and were able to find a parking spot without a problem. We ended up leaving about 2:00 a.m. and there were cars lined up to exit off of the interstate, so I guess we came at the right time. Angela and I headed back to her house after the shopping. Our husbands were sound asleep.
On Friday, we did some looking for baby stuff at Babies R Us in the cities. We didn't get anything yet, but hopefully soon. I don't know if it's a pregnancy effect or what, but I am so indecisive when it comes to this stuff. We met up with the NDSU basketball team on their way to Wisconsin-Green Bay so Ryan could join them for the road trip. I headed back to Fargo.
We are getting a little bit of snow in Fargo tonight and the wind is really blowing it around. It will look nice to have a little white covering to go with all of the Christmas decorations around town. It is supposed to be cold this week, so it might just stay around this time.
Thanks to everyone for all of the guestbook entries and comments. We love reading them! Sign up for the mailing list if you want to be notified when we update the website.
Congratulations to cousin Jill and her husband Jeff on the birth of Elliet Lindsay. (I love that they used Jill's maiden name for her middle name!) Elli came about 5 weeks early, but it sounds like she is doing great and will come home soon.
Ryan is on the road with the NDSU basketball team as they are playing their first games this weekend. It's the first trip of many trips to come this winter. At least it will be a little more predictable this year since NDSU joined a conference.
We picked out a soft yellow paint for the baby's room. The mostly sky blue bedding has some bugs on it -- butterflies, bubble bees and lady bugs. It can easily be for a boy or girl. We don't have a crib or anything else picked out for the nursery. We are waiting until we go to the cities to look since it is pretty slim pickings around here for that sort of thing.
I am feeling great! I love being pregnant. The baby must like to work on some dance moves or something while I am trying to get to sleep. I guess he/she is a night owl. Any more guesses on the sex of the baby? I would say the majority of people think we are going to have a boy....but only time will tell. We don't really have a feeling on it yet, and the anticipation of not knowing is fun!
Next Tuesday, we start Lamaze classes. Hopefully, it's a little more than just breathing techniques since the classes go for 4 hours!
