mama bird with no nest

the urge is in full force. i have been to babies R us twice since Sunday. today i went to a JoAnne's and bought *gasp* fabric! then i went to home depot for paint swatches for the changing table. i bought sand paper and primer.

the vision is coming together! i am gathering the pieces, the twigs and moss and fluff for my baby bird nest. however.....i have no spot for said nest. all the twigs are jammed in the closet of the perfectly staged guest room.

speaking of.....no offers yet. i know it has only been one week....but i really don't think we are going to get any offers in the next month. but we will see. the guest room may be trans-nested into the baby room very soon.

i passed my glucose test like a sugar bingeing champ. and just as i was celebrating with a giant cookie, the nurse told me i am severely anemic and need to take an additional 50mg of iron on top of my prenatal. side effect of iron supplements: constipation.

i am never pooping again.

i guess i could just start an exciting diet of liver and blood sausage.

or have a love affair with prune juice.

  1. Isn't Guinness supposed to be high in iron? Loophole!

    Seriously though, I've been on Slo-Fe since my first appt and I'm STILL slightly anemic. Take it with an emergen-c and it helps absorption and the pooping issue.
