Pregnancy Brain

My test went okay yesterday and really wasn't as bad as I initially thought. I will find out the results tomorrow.

*** doctor just called and said I'm negative for gestational diabetes! Yay! She did say that one out of the four was just a bit high so I may have to repeat the screening in 4 to 6 weeks. I feel so relieved!

Today Molly and I had an adventurous day. We set out on an hour long walk this morning because it was beautiful and cool. I brought my cell phone but didn't bring my keys because I thought I would go in through the garage. Towards the end of my walk a friend called and after talking to her for a few minutes my cell phone battery died. I got home, opened the garage door, and couldn't get in the house because the actual door to the house was locked. So, my cell phone was dead and I had no way to get in the house. Before going to our new neighbors' houses and begging to use the phone to call James's cell phone (which would be long distance), I decided to try to demolish the doorknob on the door leading to the house. After all, I had numerous tools at my disposal. I also knew that James had bought new locks for the house and he would replace it anyway. That didn't work. Molly and I decided to walk to my friend Kathleen's house, which is about another 10 minute walk. She wasn't there. We headed back to the house and hung out in the back yard for a little while. I was starving and tired from the long hour long walk. Neither of our immediate neighbors were home. The people across the street were home but I'm not sure if they know english. After about an hour I left Molly on our deck and waddled (truly) to my friend Kathleen's house again, hoping that she would be home this time. She was. We drove back to my house and rescued Molly. I was able to call James to tell him what happened as he was trying to submit some major plans. He was able to take off work early and finally come and get me.

Lesson learned...Always have a spare key handy. I'm going to blame this all on being 29 weeks pregnant.
