New Obsession

Lately I've been obsessed with the discount designer and coupon sites that are sprouting up all over. I subscribe to at least 5. There's the hyper local sites like Groupon that give everyday deals like 50% of a massage or $10 off a local restaurant. Then there's the sample sale sites like Gilt that give deep discounts on great clothes, shoes, bags. Here's a list of my go to sites:

Swirl by Daily Candy

Gilt Group

Zulily ( for children)

Plum District


They're all email subscription based and a great past time for those shoppers out there. But don't steal my deal!

Appointments are my life

Last Friday I had my OB appointment and my doctor said I was measuring big. No. Really? I've gotten so huge I think I weigh more than my husband. The "measuring big" thing didn't surprise me. Also, Maddox was 9lbs 4oz at birth so I knew this next one would be just as big. She scheduled me for an ultrasound on Monday. Luckily with Maddox's tonsil surgery...oh did I mention he goes in for surgery on Tuesday?...I already had the day off to take him to his pre-op appointment. The ultrasound proved that I'm big. How many people have to tell me that?? It also showed that I have extra amniotic fluid and that the umbilical cord is expanded. This is all resulting in twice weekly non-stress tests and another US in three weeks. And this is on top of my bi-weekly OB appointments. I'll be living in the doctor's office. Oh and on top of all this I hurt my foot. Not sure how. I can barely walk on it. So, I have an appointment tomorrow with my primary care doctor to take a look at it. Please don't put me in a cast!
