I went to my doctor on the 28th, and have gained 14 pounds. There was good news and bad news -
Good news- I needed my blood sugar to be less than 140 in order to not have gestational diabetes. My score was a 107, he said I "knocked that one out of the park". I am SO THANKFUL that I don't have to prick my finger or watch what I eat!!! What a blessing!
Bad news- I am anemic. I needed to score a 12 and I scored a 10.8... slightly anemic, but I have to take iron pills every day until baby comes. But hey, I'll take that over diabetes any day. Hopefully I won't get sick from them.
I think the highlight of my week was going to yoga - we did exercises to alleviate pain in the upper back and shoulders. I didn't realize how much tension I held in those areas but after the class was done I felt like I had gotten a back massage! It was awesome. I also took advantage of Black Friday shopping, but not the crazy kind where I get up at 4 am. In the past I did that with my mom but since she wasn't up here I didn't go early. I did need to go to Target to get a few things (hand soap, mascara, things I don't really need especially on Black Friday, etc.) so I went out in the chaos. The good thing about Black Friday in the afternoon is that every register is open so it's quick to check out! I also shopped on Cyber Monday and got new bedding for the guest room - it's kinda crazy but I love it, and I also am looking for a lamp similar to the one in the picture.
Tyler started painting the kitchen/dining area/living room this week and it looks awesome!! It's Martha Stewart's Flagstone.
