It's funny how last week I was so depressed about my size and weight, yet this week I've done a complete turn around. Again I feel comfortable with my body, as if I've suddenly adjusted to it.

I have noticed this has been a cycle the past month or two. When I have a bad week, just turning in bed feels uncomfortable. When I have a good week like this one, my body just feels normal.

Today I went to the doctor. Thankfully, the ultrasound was normal and I do NOT have gestational diabetes. My doctor did say that my blood pressure has been running a little high, and to cut down on salt. I actually have been trying, but as usual I struggle with making good choices when eating out. Well, all I can do is try. I'm sure it would help if I could force myself back on that treadmill. I know that I feel so much better when I exercise, but somehow knowing that still does not make it any easier to do.

We went to an outlet mall over the weekend, and bought our first nursery items. We found some really cute storage boxes with moons, stars, and bears. We thought they'd be cute for storing items in the closet. They were only $3.00 each. How could we pass up a deal like that? We also narrowed down furniture styles, and I hope to make a final decision and get it ordered within the next couple weeks.

This week I had a chance to discuss baby gear with my mom and sister, who gave me their opinions on the necessary items we'll need to register for. We discussed strollers, car seats, bassinets, baby gates, etc. It was very helpful and gave me some things to think about. The thought of registering seems a little less daunting now, and we've already been asked more than once when we're going to register. I figure I have at least a good month before that needs to be done, and the nursery bedding and furniture takes top priority in my mind.
