Third Trimester Update



Life has been a bit draining lately, I won’t deny it! I’m on the home stretch of my pregnancy now and instead of moving quickly it’s slow down drastically.  A couple of weeks ago I failed my 1 hour non-fasting glucose test.

I am sure most would agree that in buying a good quality coat that the quantity of use should last for a good amount of time not merely a few months.
