As the countdown dwindles, I start to get just a little more nervous and excited. In 100 days, (give or take) we will have our little boy home. I've started to have some braxton hicks contractions, which feel like a blood pressure cuff around my belly. From what I read, they're perfectly normal, but I'll be sure to ask about them at today's appointment. Also today, (drumroll...) I'll have the much-awaited glucose test!!! Try to remain calm, folks. I know that everyone secretly wants to drink flat orange soda and have blood drawn.
