27 weeks

Well I am 27 weeks this week and I am feeling good. I am going to the beach this weekend so I get to wear my maternity bathing suit for the first time.

I had my gestational diabetes 3 hour test done yesterday because I failed the glucose tolerance test last Friday at my Dr. appt. I think I just ate too much sugar last Friday.

I had to do a special diet Mon - Wed this week and then I couldn't eat or drink anything after Midnight Thurs. morning. I showed up at Mary Black Hospital at 7:30 and they registered me and sent me to the lab where they took my blood. After they tested my blood they brought me a very sweet, flat orange soda that I had to drink in 5 minutes or less. Then I just had to sit and wait.

About an hour and 15 minutes later they took my blood again. More waiting and two episodes of Roseanne later took my blood ...then an episode of A Different World and the Cosby Show later took it again. I got to leave at 11:30.

So....let's hope everything comes back ok!

26 weeks today, that's half a year! huh

My countdown is into the double digits now...

98 days til my due date. I guess this is where the countdown really starts. 14 weeks left, yay!

I am going to the Dr. tomorrow for my check up. This is the first time in my life that I have actually looked forward to going to the doctor. I guess its because Im going to the Dr. to make sure my baby is safe. Its amazing to think that if my baby was born today that he could survive! He is still so tiny (hes almost 2 lbs)

Tomorrow I have to drink an orange soda and wait 1 hour for them to screen for gestational diabetes. I hope everything comes back normal. I think that it will, God has been so good to me through my whole pregnancy. I have faith that he will continue to watch over my baby and me. I know every woman probably feels this way but I feel like my son is special, like God has something really special planned for his life and I cant wait to see what it is. I just pray that God will give Matt and me wisdom to raise him right and that my son will have a soul that yearns to follow God.

I thank all of you who pray for my baby and for me.

25 weeks

So, yeah I was 25 weeks prego on Thursday but I've had a very busy weekend! Please forgive me.

I now have a new trick! I can make my belly button pop out. I will show anyone who wants to see it. Most people don't though.

I am starting to get nervous and kind of scared about the baby coming. I don't know whether I'm ready or not. but I guess, ready or not here he comes!

24 weeks

Current mood: lethargic
Category: Life

24 weeks = 6 months! I never thought back in December that I would get here! And now I think that August will never get here! But I've been through 6 months and I've only got 3 months + a few weeks left. It will be here before I know it.

I don't feel like cooking lately and I feel so bad for Matt. He is willing to cook but I don't want to eat what he wants to cook and he doesn't want to cook just for himself. I just feel overwhelmed by everything and I don't want to cook because then I'll have to clean up the mess it makes and that's just one more thing for me to do. I am going through a diva phase or a spoiled brat phase I guess. I just want to come home from work and lay on the couch and eat bon-bons while Matthew rubs my feet.

I told Matt the other night that I just wish I could have a cook and a maid. (HAHAHAHAHAHHA) They would have to work for free I guess.

Anyway I need to get over this laziness real fast because once the baby gets here I won't be allowed to be lazy!

Baby Kicks

Matthew got to feel the baby kick yesterday! I was so glad that he finally got to feel it. I can't wait until August! I'm so excited about having to baby here so I can hold him and give him lots of kisses!

It's exciting to think of what he'll look like. Will he look like me or Matt? Will he have blonde hair or brown hair (maybe red hair?) Will he have blue eyes or brown eyes? When I imagine him as a child I think of him as about 5 years old with brown hair and brown eyes. I don't know why. I think that he will be loving and funny and everyone will love him.

Sorry, just daydreaming a little!
