Appt Updates and a Night at the Fair

I had an appt yesterday to have the glucose tolerance screening done. Will find out in a couple of days what the results are. I've gained another 2 1/2 lbs so that brings me to 25 lbs total at 29 wks. They also had me see the dr even though I was just there 2 wks ago, that way I wouldn't have to go back for another month. Baby is measuring well and sounds great...although the dr almost forgot to listen to her. He was so into the story he was telling me that he'd forgotten what he'd done and what he hadn't done. LOL Oh and just for kicks, every week I measure myself around the belly...not sure why although it could be a carryover from my PP EC days of doing toilet paper belly measuring. I'm now up to 40 3/4 inches around.

Alex had his drs appt today to get his collarbone rechecked. He got a clean bill of health and was released back into all activities. He was very excited about that. While the bone is still jagged looking on top because new bone hasn't formed there yet, underneath you can definitely see where the new bone is and that it is now hardened at this point. It was very interesting to see his xray from a month ago compared to this one. Dr said his broken collarbone is just as strong now as his nonbroken one and that he has an equal chance of breaking either one at this point. Let's pray that he doesn't do that again anytime soon.

I got a call from Kenzie while at work today asking if I wanted to go the 4-H county fair with them tonight. Andy and the kids were going to go in the early afternoon but those plans got messed up by a truck catching fire on the Kent Narrows bridge on the side that they had to travel on to get to the fair. Traffic was backed up across the Island for hours. So after I sat in traffic (unrelated to the truck fire) to get home from work, I hopped in the van and road up to the 4-H park with them. It was mobbed! There were cars and people everywhere. We had fun wandering around looking at all the animals...horses (there was a tiny pony that was just too cute), pigs, cows, sheep, goats, bunnies, hens, roosters and ducks. One of the roosters cage had caution tape draped around it. Upon peaking inside, you could see the rooster along with an egg. I'm guessing any rooster that lays an egg is in need of having caution tape wrapped around his cage. ROFL There was a whole cage full of eggs and the kids got a kick out all the different sizes and colors of them. Bekah was fascinated with the piglets that were trying to eat from their mama. I'm glad babies don't pull and squirm and wiggle as much as though little piglets were. Made me hurt for the poor mama. All in all, it was a nice evening...couldn't have asked for better weather.

I can sympathize with those poor mama pigs. I too, feel her pain. :)

Keeping my fingers crossed for your glucose test.

Fingers crossed for your glucose test!

I just went to a county fair here in NJ - I even got to see some of the cow competitions. I'm such a suburban girl, rural stuff fascinates me! I fell in love with some baby chicks.
