Speaking of the baby, we have the baby carriage! It's nice and we got it for free from the friends of our friends. I haven't even seen the people, isn't it something that makes you believe in people and good?
My hubby's back with an impressive amount of cartons:) Viva Tesco!

Today morning was a bit of a nightmare to me. I had to test the concentration of glucose in my blood. In order to do so, I had to go to the laboratory and I had the first blood sample taken. Then you dissolve 75 g of glucose in a glass of water and you drink it on an empty stomach. Then you sit there for 2 hours, not eating, drinking nor - God forbid - walking. Once 2 hours are over, the second sample is taken and you are free to go. So, one of the most disgusting things I had to do in my entire life was drinking this glucose dissolved in water. After first three sips I almost threw it up and there was the whole glass to be drunken. Terribly sweet, revolting stuff, yecch! What's more, it tasted as if caustic and my throat was terribly irritated. I managed to drink it finally, bearing in mind that if I didn't, I would have to wake up so early again, come there again, pay again and what's the worst, drink it again, anyway. Good job, we've done it. Now just waiting for the results and hoping everything's OK and I won't have to do this once again.

Finally we have some rain here. I guess this bulging stuff was nothing serious. Yesterday 3 bulges during the whole day and today only one. My friend told me it's a normal thing and I should just take some rest when the belly hardens. My sweet little son, I love him so much. I'll do everything to carry him as long as possible, so that he's strong and healthy. When has this maternal instinct appeared? You get to know you're pregnant, you know there's a little bean inside, you go to the doctor and suddenly there's no bean but a person. You become a Mom and you don't know when and how. The miracle of conception, the miracle of life. How lucky we are being able to contemplate our happiness. Praise the Lord!
