Week 29

2/24/2006 Category :General 0

Today I’m in my 29th week. Tuesday I had another 3 hour glucose test at the doctor’s. Somehow, I managed to walk away once again, without being put on insulin. My dr. said I’m an interesting case. Just what I always hoped for! I’m interesting. So I am contining to monitor my fasting blood sugar and I have to call if it gets over 115. Which makes the fact that I keep craving sweets hard to deal with, but I’m hanging in there.

Today I started to work on the nursery. I primed over the ivy stencils that were on the wall from back when it was a guest room and I taped off everything that won’t be painted. And I also managed to get one wall painted. I’ll post a picture of it when I’m done. Of course I still have 3 walls left and figuring out how to hang wallpaper!

I’ll try to get Patrick to take a picture of me tomorrow so you can see how big I’m getting!

In other news….

Patrick has actually posted twice in the last two days after only posting once since forever. Is that one of the signs of the end of the world? See, I had to post a third time today just to stay ahead of him!

And now, for deep thoughts….

As I’ve started feeling very large and elephant like the past week or two I’ve been wondering where on earth the phrase “in a delicate way” came from. I certainly feel anything but delicate right now!

Happy V-Day to me!

Patrick got me a gift certificate for a massage for Valentine’s Day and I had my appointment today. It was absolutly wonderful! The girl talked to me the whole time which would normally drive me crazy, but she was fun to talk to and was asking me questions and stuff so it was fine. I didn’t even realize how much my neck and shoulders hurt until she started working on them. And she also spent a long time on the lower left side of my back where I’ve had a lot of pain the last few months. How nice to be pampered for a whole hour!

I’m famous!

Today I had to google myself to look up the Sherman High School website for a friend and found this link:

If it’s any good, that’s me!

Time is flying!

I have a website that I signed up for that sends me emails everyday with information about changes in the baby and changes in me and also keeps track of the time line for me. Today I start week 26 and looking at the chart, that means I have this week and next week before I move on to the 3rd trimester. Man, time is going fast. I thought it would be so slow, and I’m sure towards the end I will feel like it is, but right now, it’s just zipping by.

When I pointed the two weeks out to Patrick his response was, “Man, we’d better get cracking on the nursery then!” So much to do still. And we have only narrowed down the names, but we still have several we are debating. We’ll go buy some of the furniture soon with our lovely target gift card (see the entry on my car). It’s getting really exciting but really nerve racking!

Today’s WTF moment

2/1/2006 Category :General 2

I found the following story on the yahoo headlines:

SAN FRANCISCO – A Louisiana man claims in a lawsuit that Apple’s iPod music player can cause hearing loss in people who use it.

Apple has sold more than 42 million of the devices since they went on sale in 2001, including 14 million in the fourth quarter last year. The devices can produce sounds of more than 115 decibels, a volume that can damage the hearing of a person exposed to the sound for more than 28 seconds per day, according to the complaint.

The iPod players are “inherently defective in design and are not sufficiently adorned with adequate warnings regarding the likelihood of hearing loss,” according to the complaint, filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in San Jose, Calif., on behalf of John Kiel Patterson of Louisiana.

The suit, which Patterson wants certified as a class-action, seeks compensation for unspecified damages and upgrades that will make iPods safer. Patterson’s suit said he bought an iPod last year, but does not specify whether he suffered hearing loss from the device.

Patterson does not know if the device has damaged his hearing, said his attorney, Steve W. Berman, of Seattle. But that’s beside the point of the lawsuit, which takes issue with the potential the iPod has to cause irreparable hearing loss, Berman said.

“He’s bought a product which is not safe to use as currently sold on the market,” Berman said. “He’s paying for a product that’s defective, and the law is pretty clear that if someone sold you a defective product they have a duty to repair it.”…………

So now we can’t even take responsibility and use our brains to decide when the music playing in our ears might be too loud? What the heck?
