The Dreaded GTT, and Other Randomness

Well, I'm writing this post while sitting in the waiting room of the local pathology clinic.  I'm here for the next 2.5-3 hours for the delightful Glucose Tolerance Test, something I'm sure all second-and-subsequent time mms look forward to *eyeroll*
Seriously, this is the most annoying, depressing bloody test I've ever had.  It sucks more than the 3.5 weeks I spent in hospital in Hobart. Really.  Not only have I not eaten since 9pm last night (now 9:22am) but I have to have blood taken at least twice and drink a horrible flat lemonade which tastes like shit.  Not looking forward to the next couple of hours of this.

In other news, I've suspected Lily has been teething for the past few weeks, and my suspicions were confirmed last night when I was able to take a look at her gums to find one tooth had broken through on the top right side, looks like another one or two is pushing through on the left, and possibly another two on the lower gum.  Poor little bugger - she's obviously been going through hell with these  'teefers', but at least I can say I did the right thing by giving her Panadol and Nurofen often, which I was kind of worried about since I didn't know for sure that her teeth were the problem, but I'm now justified in my medicating her!

My mother-in-law has been kind enough to buy Lily her first "big girl's bed".  It's still 5-7 weeks away, but it is a custom order so a wait is to be expected I suppose! We looks at frames because I wanted something with storage underneath, but all the frames had a sort of bar or something just outside of where the mattress sat, so if she fell out she'd be likely to hit her head or other parts.  So we've ended up ordering an ensemble with 2 drawers built into the base, and a headboard.  The base will be a fuchsia color from a durable, hardwearing fabric, and the headboard will be a velour-esque fabric in magenta.  It's going to look awfully cute - I can't wait for it to arrive and for her to have her first night in a big bed!  I'm hoping it will improve her sleep too, being a more comfortable mattress than a foam cot mattress.

Anyway, I've babbled on long enough.  Hope to be back soon with more updates on our growing family :-)
