UPDATE* I just got the results from my doctor. My glucose came back normal and i’m in the clear. I’m surprised considering how much my body reacted to it but thankful. The blood test did show i’m slightly anemic so I’ll need to start taking iron supplements.
Tomorrow I’m planning to start signing up for my birth & baby prep classes and i’m going to start looking into hiring a doula. I’m really apprehensive about the birth and Tim isn’t always the most understanding when it comes to pain. Doula’s also come for a few home visits before after baby and can give advice on nursing, sleeping, and any other questions you might have. So I think for a first time mom it would be really helpful for me.
For the classes i’m planning to sign up for 1) Baby First Aid/CPR 2) Sleep Training 101 3) Breastfeeding 101 4) Caring for your Newborn. I’m taking the classes at Mother’s Haven in Encino. It’s also where i’ve signed up for my Mommy and Me classes.
There’s also a birth prep class which i’m considering but I want to see if that’s something I can go over with the doula.
I also will be booking a walkthrough of the hospital we’ll be delivering it.
My baby shower invites went out this week. I’m so excited to celebrate Baby P and my sweet friends & family are working so hard to prep and plan such a pretty shower for me! My registry went live, you can check it out here: https://www.babylist.com/maria-pelletier
I’m addicted to adding cute baby girl clothes I find on instagram to the registry. She may not have a set up nursery when she gets here but baby girl’s outfits are going to be on point!
I’ll leave you with some photos of what i’ve been eating lately because apparently I love taking photos of my food.
