I have nearly missed October completely!

My goodness, I'm failing at blogging as of late.  You must give me a break seeing as how I don't have a computer of my own and the TWO that we have my husband uses for his at home job.  I do use the ipad occasionally but that's not easy to write a whole blog on.  So again, please forgive me.  All two of you that read this :)
So I last left off with the dreaded glucose test.  Turned out that they messed the test up so they asked me to go back in to redo it.  My doctor even called me herself to apologize for the mess up, said they would only do the one hour (no charge), and sent me a $10 gift card to Casey's.  Fair enough.
So two tuesdays ago, I went in to get the glucose liquid, wednesday morning I went back in and got my blood drawn, and then thursday I had my final baby check-up with my family doctor.  It was crazy, especially since my doc is 20 minutes away in another town.  It's all good.  My blood test came back good.
The first time they checked my blood they did find that my hemoglobin was low so I've been trying to be really good and eat salads everyday.  It doesn't always happen but I'm trying.  And if I can't get a salad in then I try to drink a naked juice.  I'll get the Green Machine which has what I really need in it.  I'll take that over carrots ;)
As of last thursday I am 31 weeks.  I can't believe I only have a little less than 9 weeks to go.  Kind of insane to me.  I'm excited but definitely nervous.  If one kid takes so much attention, then how will I do with two?? I may as well not sleep :)
My baby appointments will now be every 2 weeks starting this thursday.  First with my history appointment and then onto seeing my OB.  I really like my OB.  He's such a nice guy.  I was even lucky enough to have him deliver A back in 2008.
I'm starting to have Braxton Hicks.  I've been having hot flashes throughout the end of my second trimester and with the third.  And now they've slowly turned into BH.  It's exciting but nerve racking at the same time.  It's getting close! Well, closer   :)
