So, while I don't expect anyone here to be interested, at least one person bet that I wouldn't, so I am hereby announcing plans for my baby shower type shindig. It is to be held Saturday, June 26th in Burien, WA (a suburb of Seattle). Anyone interested in attending is free to contact me in whatever method you know how and give me an address, as I'm a little late to the game and invites have yet to be sent.
As you might have expected, this will not be your standard baby shower... more like a farewell to childless days party. No pink balloons or retarded games, but there will be good food, good people and alcohol served. It will also be co-ed, and I anticipate pretty even numbers of guys and gals.
In related news, I had some bloodwork done a week or so ago that came back with evidence of high sugar levels and an iron deficiency. Whether or not the sugar levels mean gestational diabetes is TBD. The iron deficiency is crap, though. I expose myself to plenty of it, but must not be absorbing it well. I've done some research, though, and have developed a new game plan to tackle that (although I'm taking a suppliment in the mean time).
Other than that, as of today, I have a mere two months to go. I knew they said time would fly by, but damn. I didn't realize just how fast. I've got a lot to pack into these last two months, too, so I'm sure they'll go by even faster. Still have to register for the baby shower, still have to sign up for the child-birth classes (and maybe the breastfeeding class, too), still have to tour the hospital and "pack the bag"... and I'll be in St. Louis for a week.
Anything else that might be helpful?
