MFM update


Today I had a MFM appointment. It was for a growth ultrasound to see how little girl was growing and to check back in on the cyst I have camped out on the placenta. Well baby girl is getting big!!! 2lbs 4oz already!!! She looks excellent!!! And as for that cyst, well you can't even tell it was there. So both are great things!! The only bittersweet moment was that because everything looks so good the MFM said he no longer needs to see me. So that means I most likely won't get to see our little girl until her birthday. I guess that's only 12 weeks away so it's not so bad. Here are a couple of pics of my little girl.


Next up is my 1 hour Glucose Tolerance Test on Monday. I really hope I pass!!!

27 weeks

Not sure why blogger hates me. I posted last week and apparently it didn't publish. So I just did it again and now I will update for this week. Not much going on. We just got back from a long weekend at the beach. It was awesome!!!! Even though I could not lay on my belly and fall asleep like normal. The hubby called me a turtle because of my inability to roll over. Sorry no bathing suit pictures yet. Not that brave to post them on the interwebz, actually I don't think we took any. I got a little more sun than I should have, even after coating myself in sunblock. Well at least now I have some color and a base tan before we head to the beach again in a few weeks. 
Anyway I am currently 27 weeks, I have 12 more weeks to go. I guess this puts me in my 3rd trimester. We are still working feverishly on the house. We have lights in the kitchen 
and the new window should be going in any day now. Then next week I think we start the work on the floor and plumbing. Hopefully we can get the flooring done before my parents arrive next month if or my shower. Well at least there is some progress. I love it!!!!! 
Oh and I guess you want to see my bump. Large and in charge!!!
Tomorrow we get to see baby girl and I seriously can't wait!!!! 

26 weeks

Where is the time going???? How do I only have 13 weeks left???? This is just crazy!!! 
Well not a lot going on here. I just got back from a long weekend in Atlanta to celebrate the first birthday of some amazing twins. This weekend is another long weekend for me at the ocean. I am a little afraid of going on the beach in a 2 piece but hey I am gonna rock it!!! Mostly because I don't want to spend money on a new suit and I still fit in my old suit that I got back in October for the cruise. 
Little girl has been very active and I love feeling her move around. I am looking forward to seeing her next week on Friday the 28th when we go to the MFM for a growth ultrasound. Then I go to the OB on July 1st for my Glucose Tolerance test, I must say I am a little nervous about it.

Lucky Day

About a week ago my hubby forwarded me an email from the community college where he teaches part time. They were looking for pregnant women who would be interested in a free 1 hour prenatal massage from the advance message therapy students. Yes Please!!!! Sign me up!!!! I responded to the email and they gave me the 8:30am slot. Let me just say there is no better way to start off your day. It was seriously one of the best massages that I have ever had. And it was free!!!

24 weeks

It's viability day!!!! I have reached 24 weeks and we are at the point that if I have the baby, Drs will do everything possible to make sure she lives. Of course she needs to stay inside me for a lot longer. Like until September!!! 
Anyway things are going great! We are trucking right along. Last week I had an OB check up and at that point I had gained a total of 18lbs and the Dr told me to try to keep an eye on it because they only liked to see between 25-35lbs total. I have kicked up my working out, even though I was already hitting the gym 3 or 4 nights a week. I am trying to walk longer than the 30 minutes I was doing and of course I am trying to do it more often. 
We also did our registry!!! I was so excited about that!!! The hubby and I had a Saturday date night at Babies R Us and selected all the stuff we will need for Baby C. The only thing that we didn't find there while registering was the bedding set we selected. So we registered at Buy,buy baby just for that. 
We are starting to make good progress on the kitchen renovation which is always great news. We might even get the floor evened out before the end of the month like we had hoped for. Which would mean we can start to lay the wood flooring next moth and hopefully get the walls up for bedroom 3, which would put us one step closer to starting the nursery!!!
Before I go for today I should leave you with my 24 week bump picture.
