31 weeks

Where is the time going???? I seriously can't believe that we are in the home stretch. 8 weeks till my sweet baby girl is here. It's starting to get real!!!! 
As I'm sure I mentioned in my previous post I passed the 3 hour glucose test!!! Thank goodness!!!! I had an OB appointment this week and everything is moving along like it should. Baby's heart rate was perfect at 133, my belly was measuring right at 31 weeks and well my total weight gain is about 30lbs. I have scheduled all of my remaining OB appointments which is awesome!! Something else that is awesome is I ordered my breast pump today. My insurance covers it at 100% so that makes me a happy girl. Apparently is should be shipping out in the next week or so. My baby shower is 1 week away and I seriously can't wait!!! We have been waiting to purchase things for the baby until after the shower so I really can't wait for the shower to be here already so we can start to put stuff together for the baby. 
Well that's about all that is going on these days. Here is my 31 week bump picture.

Great Vacation

Well I'm back from my vacation in Hilton Head, SC. Such a fun place to go. We have been there many times before so we really just got to hang out and enjoy the beach and pools. So key word was relax the entire time we were there and that is exactly what we did. Here's my 30 week bump picture from our balcony.

Huge update!!!

After waiting until Thursday afternoon I figure I would call the Dr. office to find out how I did on my 3 hour test. I know they say no news is good news but I wanted to know the results. I had to leave a message but my call was returned quickly. I passed all of the blood draws so I definitely do not have gestational diabetes. Woohoo!!!!! To celebrate my co-workers and I went out for our free Slurpee since it was 7/11. 
It was so good!!!!

The hubby and I decided to change our original Thursday night plans to stay in and get some stuff done around the house. I cooked us a yummy dinner of gnocchi with sausage, onions and peppers. After dinner I cleaned up the dinner mess and he got busy working on the house. We actually have some drywall up. 
There was some great progress for a week night. Thank goodness because we need all the drywall up before we leave for vacation, since we have a contractor coming to tape and mud it all while we are away. I am loving the progress!!!!!

As for my progress I am officially 29 weeks and only have 10 more to go. Yep that's right 70 days. Eeek!!!! I am excited and scared all at the same time. Well here is my most recent bump picture, just in case you want to see.

Progress on the Kitchen

Well me are making baby steps. We should be making adult steps before the little one arrives but there just isn't enough time in the day nor enough money in our bank accounts to make things happen at the speed we would like. We finally have all the electrical work done and the drywall for the ceiling has been hung.
 The hubby has been working lots of overtime to get extra money for the project so the progress on the kitchen has slowed a little bit. You know what they say about home improvement projects, you either have the time or the money, not both. Oh so true!!! Last night I cleared off all the glasses and stuff we had on top of the current kitchen cabinets. Today hubby is home hanging more drywall (this time on the walls) and hopefully putting in the new window. We need that to all be completed before we leave for vacation on Saturday as we will have a contractor come in to do the finish work on the drywall (tape and mud). Then once we are back from vacation we can try to tackle the next phase which will be the floors. Wish us luck!!!!

Try again

This morning I got to try the glucose test all over again. Instead of spending 1 hour there I had to spend 3 hours there. I got there at 8:30 and they drew my blood then gave me that oh so yummy orange drink to chug down. Then for the next 3 hours they did a blood draw. Yep that's right a total of 4 sticks and 3 hours. At least there is a tv in the waiting room and I got to watch the Today Show and Kelly and Michael. Oh and let's not forget play words with friends and play on Facebook too. They told me that the results should be back this week so keeping my fingers crossed I pass.

Yep that's right I failed my 1 hour glucose test. Boo!!!! I got the phone call on Tuesday to tell me that my numbers were slightly elevated. Meaning my number needed to be under 135. So when she told me it was 138 I was a little bothered that now I need to spend 3 hours at the Dr. on Monday. Oh well!!! I am hopeful that I will pass the 3 hour test since I was so close with the 1 hour test. In the meantime I need to follow this diet over the weekend to get ready for the test on Monday. Wish me luck!!!!


My day started with the breakfast of champions!!!! Yep that sugary orange drink for my 1 hour glucose test. Well actually I woke up 3 hours before my test and an hour and a half before I normally get up just so I could eat a bowl of cereal. Then I went back to sleep and waited for the alarm to go off so I could get ready for my day. I arrived at the OB's office and chugged my drink and then saw the OB and she did her stuff (measurements and heartbeat). Then I had to wait for my blood draw. It all seemed pretty simple. I am the boring pregnant person and I am so okay with that. Appointments are now every 2 weeks. And my c-section is scheduled for September 19th at 9am. Woohoo!!! This is all so exciting!!!!!!
