28 weeks....

Helloooooo 3rd trimester!
I have never imagined that I would be here
Went to my check up today and everything looks good
Because of my gestational diabetes I now have to go and see him for a non stress test once a week, then see my doctor every 2 weeks and have an ultrasound every 3 weeks. Whew!
This is going to get crazy as I have to go to another office for my ultrasound so hopefully I don't get confused.
I am officially in my last week of school!!! Yippee! I will then be on hiatus from school until spring semester which will be in April. I will need this break!
I hope to get the dresser in the nursery this weekend so I can start washing clothes and putting them away.
My baby shower is next week so after that I will be able to put everything in it's right place :)

27 weeks...

I wish I kept up on weekly belly pictures like I do my blog posts.
But decided to only do monthly for the rest of my pregnancy.
Well a lot has happened over the past week.
I failed both my sugar tests and now have gestational diabetes. I have to poke my finger and check my sugar levels everyday now. I get to attend a nutritionist class tmrw to help me what I can eat and can't eat.
I quit drinking pop which is huge for me. I am limiting my sweets intake which is again huge for me. As this whole pregnancy that's what I've been craving. And I know I need to watch my carbs. I'll learn more tmrw.
We got new windows this weekend and they look great. Can't wait for spring/summer to open my windows and actually get a breeze in my house. I would never get anything before.
Now off to dr to check this growth on baby!

26 weeks...

Been a good week.
Not much going on.
I have 2 weeks left of school and can't wait :)
Nursery is almost done :)
New windows being installed this wknd :)
I have a dear friends baby shower on Sunday :) now that I'm pregnant I love going to baby showers but before I hated them. I used to sit there and cry in my head telling myself this should be me and why won't this happen to me. But now I talk to people who are going through the same thing I went through and I just tell them exactly how I felt and lots and lots of patience! I've been there, done that. I know how you feel. I hate seeing people struggling to get pregnant who deserve kids. My heart goes out to them!
I have my 3 hour sugar test at the hospital tmrw. Praying I don't have gestational diabetes.
2 dr appts next week-1 to check growth on baby and the other with my ob to go over everything and get my rh negative shot. Yay me!

Ooh don't know if I told you this but last week was cooking dinner and went
to empty a pot of noodles and I'm sure you know what's coming next....why yes I spilled a pot of boiling water on my foot and got 2nd degree burns. It hurt so bad I instantly grabbed an ice pack and set it on my foot. I yelled for Kevin to come finish dinner so I could ice my foot. It blistered pretty good but now there's a round mark on my foot that I'm sure will leave a battle scar :(

Tomorrow I'm 27 weeks and almost 7 mths :) 2 1/2 mths and my baby girl will be here :)

I am...

So happy that I decided to keep up with this blog throughout my journey. It's a nice way to put down my feelings and what's going on with our lives.

On a bad note I burned my foot last night with boiling hot water, got 2nd degree burns. It hurt of course and I don't like pain so it was difficult. I just put an ice pack on it and wrapped it up with Neosporin.

On a good note, daddy felt you kick for the first time this morning and he was happy to feel you. He told me no wonder I don't get any sleep. I said ya because your kicking me all night :) plus I have hip pain and back pain but I say it's just getting me ready for when your here.

Nursery is almost complete. I can't wait :)

Mommy got her sugar test back and she failed so I now have to go back for the 3 hour test instead of the 1 hour. So fun...not! Just hoping and praying my sugar is good so I don't have to be put on insulin. So please say a prayer for me!

25 weeks and counting...

Baby has been doing somersaults in there the past few days. Don't know what she's doing but it feels so weird.

Well the nursery is in full swing thanks to my fabulous hubby. He's been working around the clock just to get everything ready. It's starting to look awesome! I can't wait to show it off! And we also decided on a name...Savannah Grace!

Went for my sugar test (glucose) last week, still waiting on results...don't know why it's taking so long!

My family has also been planning the shower, been trying to stay out of it so its a surprise but over controlling me wants to know what's going on every step of the way :)

I go back to the doctors in 2 weeks so I will know more then. Until then have a great week :)
