First let me say, fellow bloggers, I apologize. I am way behind on reading your updates. I promise to catch up very soon. I’ve been thinking about all of you and wondering how you’re doing!
Later this afternoon is my 28 week checkup and glucose screening. I’m not sure why, but I’m worried about the results. It’s no secret I don’t eat the best, breakfast often consists of a flavored latte and scone… I’m trying to do better with sugar-free lattes, fruit, and oatmeal. We’ll see how long this streak lasts!
Okay, so let’s get to the goods of this post. Grooming.
My doctor’s appointments are always a great reminder that grooming, even while pregnant, is important. Well, or so I think. I used to be that girl who shaved her legs every single day, yes, every day, even in the winter. I’m now like, oh, once a week is good, right?? But I’ve been making a point to shave my legs before each appointment, and with all those darn ultrasounds, well, my legs have been smooth the majority of days. I can’t say the same for other regions…
At 28 weeks I’m to the point where I can’t see below my belly, no matter how hard I try! And not to give you too much information, but with these progesterone suppositories, I feel like sometimes I need to see down there! So in the shower this morning I made my best attempt to tidy up, ya know, pretending I was going to the beach later. (Oh, if only a bikini was actually in my foreseeable future.) Well, let’s just say, it didn’t go well, or at least I don’t think it did, hard to say, since I couldn’t really admire or criticize my handy work. I just have a strange feeling that the end result will prove more embarrassing than if I’d glued Donald Trump’s toupee to my crotch…
I actually asked Eric about this last night, being he sees the private areas of his patients, both male and female, on a daily basis. He assured me I have nothing to worry about, that they’ve seen it all, and pay no attention.
So do I just give up on grooming, and caring, until after baby is born???
And OMG, it’s almost 50 ˚F and Debbie has on a winter coat and her space heater while working. WTF???
