I had my glucose test this morning. Up early. No sleep again. It was so light out I thought it was 8am and time to get up, but nope, it was 6am!!!! Boo!!!
Then it was downhill from then….there was no way I could sleep again after that 😦
Another glucose test with that wonderful-NOT glucose drink and three hour wait with no food for blood tests. Another fight against the nausea of the wait with no food annoyingly. No one has to do two glucose tests! Trust my luck that changing countries would result in that!
To make it worse, after the test, we got on the tube to go for another day of baby shopping but the tube car was soooooo hot! I was dying! There is no A/C on the UK tube system as there is no way to put them in…which always baffles everyone! The tubes have been built without being able to accommodate them. I guess it’s a good thing it’s never super hot over here – although today it was a bit muggy so I started getting woozy – and the tube car we were in had no windows to open or an end window that usually gets some air in! Ugh. I hate that shaky feeling and the feeling of little control.
I was of course offered a seat but no can do!
Made it to some food and that helped. And of course it gave me strength to baby shop!! Even got a baby car seat today!! You need one from the hospital as they won’t let you leave without one but was worried about UK prices as things are expensive here and also compatibility with a US car, where we need it. But found one that should fit everywhere with a seatbelt system, and is good but cheaper than all the rest we’ve seen. So that’s good. I think. I’m so tired to even process right now.
Then more looking and looking – another baby overload day!!
Was on my feet a lot today so my feet hurt a lot, even with sneakers on 😦

I just spent hours….HOURS….literally trying to go online to do my 365 upload while watching the closing ceremony of the Olympics…so am irritated. The stupid wireless router downstairs where I am staying is just not working…..ahhhhhhhh!!!
So I apologize for any weird tones in this upload as am annoyed!!!!!!
I arrived in London late last night. Much cooler here so hopefully it will stay like that – although when I went out to do my walking and some grocery shopping earlier it was quite warm….but of course cooler than Greece!
So this is it then.
The final haul.
The final leg on the journey.
No more flying, now it’s…nesting time.
I knew I had NYC to get through until I left for London with Stuart to see his family and friends. And then I knew I had London with Stuart to go through. And while in London I knew I still had Greece ahead to see my family. And then with the extension of the Greece trip that helped stall the idea of flying back to London.
And now, it’s back to London…to have the baby!!
That freaks me out! Now that I am here. On that final leg of the journey.
I still don’t know what is going on, despite my super uncomfortable flight from Athens to London last night – the little schmonkie was moving around a lot and I had a lot of pressure, and then nausea….not so great.
This little schmonkie is moving around a lot in general. A LOT!!!
Yeah, still in denial….but I do know that instead of going to bed last night after I arrived I went into work mode and wanted to unpack everything, and put all baby things away into the baby chest of drawers that I had left in the flat after I arrived from NYC, and set up things, and build the foldable stroller my mum had bought us, and read all the stroller instructions, and open the Moses basket and put the changing mat on top of the drawers, and put away all the clothes after folding them all and sorting them by size, and the baby bath tub, and the baby bath products, and the baby blankets, and the…..and the…..and…..
I was up until 4am doing all this!! Amid fighting tears and emotions that kept arising, then back to denial to push on and get it all done.
I eventually had to stop as my back was seizing.
I did too much as I am feeling the pain today in my feet, legs and back. I just had to do all I could for some reason…I get like that.
Maybe to get it out of the way in one go and not be overwhelmed multiple days, although I am overwhelmed every day, so hmmmmmm….
Okay, must post this before something with this Internet fails and I lose it!!
