I’m almost 19 weeks along in the pregnancy. Approaching that halfway point. I’m starting to feel little flutters in there every now and then. I had leftover spaghetti for breakfast the other day (I love dinner leftovers for breakfast) and that really seemed to make the baby active afterwards. I went in for a fasting glucose test (as an early screen for gestational diabetes) on Tuesday. I’m still waiting on the results from that. My doc said that as long as it is below 92, then I don’t have to be screened again until maybe 28 weeks (?). Anyways, hopefully that will be okay.
We’ve been sleeping with our windows open at night. There’s a crazy bird that has been waking me up around 6 am the past few mornings. It sounds like a combination between an angry chirp and a sad kitty. Nathan sleeps right through all the ruckus, of course. Well this morning, the wacky bird call came in between some wacky dreams…
I was parked at McD’s, getting ready to leave in our new (to us) mini-van and I put the van into Reverse but still had my foot on the brake. Even with my foot on the brake, and being in “reverse”, the van launched forward into the building. An employee (I think a manager) called her son who is a lawyer. The 2 of them made me sit down with them for a chat before the police arrived. The son asked me how I felt about all the wars going on in the world and if what I did was an act of terrorism. I kept trying to explain to them that I had the van in reverse, but they were convinced that I was some sort of terrorist.

Gwenyth Paltrow was telling me that Nathan and I need to raise our children in London because that is what would be best for them.

Weird dreams. 🙂
