Sometimes it's hard to find clothes when you're pregnant, and it's not just with the way things fit. For some reason maternity clothes tend to be double the price of regular clothes which seems extremely ridiculous.  Thankfully I've found the best kind of store that sells inexpensive trendy clothes. Pink Blush Maternity and for all my non pregnant friends there is a Pink Blush Womens, and this week on Pink Blush there's a 20% off coupon code that you can redeem. Seriously you guys, they have the cutest clothes and it's such an expensive price.

I'm loving my crochet maternity top, leggings and this scarf -outfit photos coming soon with the scarf, I couldn't distract from this awesome top!  I love the leggings, they are the thick kind perfect for winter and for not being see-through. The crochet top is absolutely amazing, such detail and the fringe... the fringe!

So, this week was the glucose test -I've been dreading it for the past 8 weeks.  Everyone -well most everyone- told me all the negatives about it, how horrible the drink tasted, and how they had to do a three hour test. I'm starting to feel like I can't trust certain people about these topics. For me the drink just tasted like a really sugary orange slice soda, and there was no three hour test in an uncomfortable room.

The part I hated the most was the needle. I hate needles, so Brand went with me for moral support -he's my hero.  So the phlebotomist who usually is there is super nice and knows that I'm the biggest sissy. With my luck she took the day off, so I had a substitute phlebotomist, I mean really? Of all times. The lady wasn't very nice, I kept warning her that I almost passed out last time and that I'm a big sissy with needles, she didn't really seem to care. She told me that I needed to grow up because I was going to have a baby. How rude. Some people man. 


Lastly, this little girl has two favorite spots to sit, it's the funniest thing ever.  She knows what she wants.

  17. You dressed so cute for you glucose test! I was just wearing sweats by that point! I think you only have to do the three hour if the first test shows you have high blood sugar. For some reason my OB made me do the three hour test right at the start:( You're lucky!
