Bah!! I'm not okay with naming her Charlotte or Charli anymore. I don't like it anymore!! I don't know what's going on! We did finally come up with a new one that feels right, and we're going to stick with it, but we're NOT going to tell it until she's born, due to my rapid change of heart with names! Sorry!
Well it started when I was up from 2am -- 5am with a gigantic headache. That sure was fun. I had planned on getting to Social Security about 8:45am since it opened at 9am, but instead I woke up at 8:45am due to the staying up until 5am.
Then I had the glorious wait at Social Security from 10am - 11:30am. That was wonderful. It was packed and I only had someone offer me a seat when I had only 4 more numbers to wait through. People are so nice. Here I am standing, 8 months pregnant and people just look at me. Awesome.
Then headed to my doctor, turns out Wilmot goes down to one lane (the lane I'm already in) and the person behind me was a jerk and wouldn't let the person in who needed to get in our lane. Thus, he decides to basically ride on top of my car to not let the poor person in. This causes him to bump me. How sweet. Does he follow me to check it? Nope. Luckily, there was no damage at all. But still!! I got his license plate number just in case there was any damage.
So, finally I got to my doctor's appointment. I had my Group B Strep test, but I won't know the results until next week. The doctor said if I do have it, all they'll do is give me antibiotics through IV when I give birth. She also estimated that Charli is already up to 6 lbs! That's exciting!! They said that she'll probably be around 8lbs when she's born!
We're officially ready for Charli to come. Well... ready in the physical sense. I think mental and emotional too... After I got home from my last day of school (WOO HOO!!) we went to Babies R Us and Target to get the last of the stuff we need. We got a swing, monitor, bath, more Dreft, more Johnson & Johnson lavender wash stuff, a lamp, and hangers. I think that's about it. Probably no, but oh well... that's the gist of things.
When we came home I was anxious to set up the pack and play that my 1st grade team got us!! Here it is!! It took me a little while but I did it!! (With only 2 minor helps from Will!) It's set up in our room, on my side! All it's waiting for is a beautiful baby girl!!
Yes, that's a Gus butt sticking out from underneath... of course he has to investigate the new toy!
