Thursday Thoughts!

TTGood copy
Today I am linking up with the awesome Jennifer at Ramblings of a Suburban Mom!
So what are my thoughts this Thursday?! Well for starters......
- My day has been.....interesting. For starters, I was using my flat iron this morning as always, and it started to smell really bad. I noticed a little bit of product build up on it and thought it maybe was that. Then I noticed my hair wasn't going flat so I looked and the light was off. I tried to turn it back on and reset it but nothing worked! So my hair is half done today. And to think, with my hair shorter now, I need my flat iron more than ever! Chi warranty department you will be hearing from me shortly! 3 months of use is unacceptable considering this was my first ever nicer brand flat iron!
- On the bright side I found my missing credit card! Woooo! What a relief!
- Yesterday was full of appointments (I'll mention that later), but I made a stop by Target to grab a couple things. First off, I scanned every item in my cart making sure it was on cartwheel. I got to the register and they scanned my cartwheel and nothing came off! So they suspended my order and sent me to the customer service. Cartwheel apparently wasn't working for them yesterday so he told me he would have to manually input all of them. Then he just kind of starred at me after saying that. Luckily I told him I had time! Haha! He wasn't happy, but my bill was $132 and it got it down to $107 using cartwheel. Then I used gift cards that I had either been saving, had gotten on promotions, or had recently found while cleaning. I walked out of there spending less then $50 and now I have everything for Easter, Allergy medicine for Hailey and I, a stock up on Pepsi ($2.25 each pack) and juice boxes ($1.06 a box) and a couple things I needed to continue cleaning in my room and closet (including two hampers to get our clothes off the floor!) I was pretty proud of my success!
- Yesterday was an appointment with my high risk doctor. Everything seemed good with baby. She is now 3lbs 2 ounces. We got some pretty amazing pictures of her! She was asleep for most of it and didn't want to be bothered. I was concerned because her heart rate has dropped from 160s to 129, but doctor said that it was fine and he was not concerned at all. Also now the concern is that my high blood pressure is now too low for this far along in pregnancy. We dropped my medicine down again to 400mg twice a day, but he said that we will need to probably go back up here soon, so don't get used to it. Apparently if my BP is too high she won't grow right, but if my BP is too lows she also won't grow right either. He said they are "picky little buggers" ha! We are going to start adding to our growth scans a biophysical and a non-stress test. Lot's of seeing the baby coming up!
- I passed my glucose test, but he said I was right on the dot of borderline which he doesn't like. He's going to order a redo with the 3 hour test. Ugh! Whyyyyy, but I passssssed it!!! Luckily the drink isn't too too bad, especially when cold, but then again I have never had the 3 hour test. I would rather not add that to my list of issues.
- I also spent yesterday doing my third 24 hour catch. I had a harder time with it this go around. I always feel like I have to go, but then I can't! Then when I stand back up the feeling is right back again! I forgot about all these wonderful things while pregnant with Hailey. Let's just say I spent a lot of effort trying to fill their bottle that 24 hours. And of course Kenny and Hailey threw a fit because I have to keep the bottle in the fridge. 
- The change of weather allergies have hit and Hailey is dealing with them for the first time. After much fuss I got her to take a children's Claritin. Funny thing is I read what the box said it was for, "sneezing, coughing, itchy watery eyes, and itchy throat" and her eyes got all wide and she said very seriously "those are all my symptoms!" haha goof ball! Of course they are that's why I am giving you allergy medicine!
- I'm excited for lunch break today! Not only do I have a Boston Market frozen dinner meal, but I also have a brand new episode of Teen Mom waiting for me! This one should be good!

So those are my many thoughts for today! What are your Thursday Thoughts?


  1. Oh, I booked an appointment with the peri (I absolutely HATE that I have to see 2 different OBs here - apparently it's different in every region) to be more proactive about my GD this time around. I want to get on metformin now (in the past they put me on glyburide, i hate it, still gained a zillion pounds) to help manage everything. if i eat like an ounce too many carbs while pregnant i immediately gain 5 pounds, plus i get so super tired. so i am making them treat me early this time around!

    1. Ahhhh! Def is better to be prevenative then fix things later! I have a peri and an OB also. They don't always see eye to eye on things either which makes it hard. My perinatology specialist is an older guy so he's been there and done that so I typically follow him more than my OB. Luckily I did not have any issue my first pregnancy, but this pregnancy I started out with high blood pressure that was hard to control. Luckily the extremely high doses of medicines have been keeping everything stable. It was better to start out high and adjust as necessary. Hope things go much better for you! :)
