Today I had my Queen Charlotte’s hospital appointment early and then after went baby shopping – a lot of baby shopping – or rather window shopping really. Regardless…it was too much!!

It was an overflow of baby-ness!!

And sooooo tired now! Feet are soooo painful 😦 Probably not the best thing when my feet are already swollen and I am carrying my whale-ness on my small high arched feet!!!!

I was up super early for the appointment and then on my feet all day at the mall going from one baby store to another with my mum. Literally a baby store overload!! And we have more, so much more, to do and get and look at and….and…..and….

It’s another one of my overwhelmed “and….and….and…” moments haha!!!


The hospital seemed to go well this morning. I wont know until all tests are in though. I have to go back again tomorrow for my glucose gestational diabetes testing – already did this in NYC but they want to do their own testing….so fasting again tonight and then another 3 hour testing with a gross glucose drink and set of three blood tests ahead 😦 And then have another hospital appointment next week. I assume they are rushing things along as I am already past 34 weeks!

It didn’t hit me that that was the hospital I will be giving birth in….strange!!! So strange.

All strange.


Did I mention, strange???!!! Haha!!

Sidenote: had to do the non-sitting on all four buses I took today as per my 365 challenge of not sitting on public transportation. It was annoying. I found it quite hard actually today as its been a while since I had to be on a bus or train! My mum could not understand why I could not sit down!

Ummmmm…..because its my 365…….and I am stupid!!!!

I could have stopped this 365 at day 9 when I found out I was pregnant….but nope….I am STUPID!!!!

Long day.

I had to drive to Cederhurst which is out near Far Rockaway, to read the board minutes for the apartment we are interested in – there was no other way but to drive there as no subway was near the management office annoyingly.

Then had to drive back and park it in the garage in Astoria and walk up to the subway.

Then had to go to the office, despite how brief, to take care of things there for the limited time I could before I had to leave again to go to my glucose specialist doctor appointment.

So then had to get up to St. Lukes hospital for that appointment.

That actually took way longer than anticipated – I had no idea – thought we would be just talking about things but instead I had to learn all about gestational diabetes as my slight rise in one of my glucose tests I did means now I have to do a whole week of testing with a glucose machine and pricking my blood to get readings and monitor myself as protocol.

So have to get the five or so times I do that into the schedule now too!

So I was supposed to run some errands up near Columbus Circle after I was done but was done later so managed to only do one thing off my “things to do before I leave for the UK” to-do list.

Then my phone died!!! Of course!! So was unable to take care of some work things so had to go home in order to charge the phone to respond and do some work.

And now am sweating buckets at home…..sweating me some buckets from the computer on my lap in my warm non-A/C living room while trying to get things done 😦

I am trying to cool the bedroom down right now so I can go lie down!

I might as well be in a bath right now!
