Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body. ~Elizabeth Stone

29 Weeks

The Belly:

I was using my belly to rest my plate of brownies on.

I passed my 3 hour glucose tolerance test! Yaaaaaay! I can go back to eating everything this little girl tells me to, ha!

Hello, Third Trimester!

I can't believe it! We're two-thirds of the way there! According to my "What To Expect" app, The Princess weighs about 2 and a half pounds, and is about 15 inches long from head to toe.

Our appointments are every 2 weeks now! Everything was looking great at the last appointment, I've gained five pounds total and my belly was measuring a week ahead! I had to take my glucose tolerance test, which I failed. I took the 3 hour test on Monday, and should have results from that tomorrow. We are all crossing our fingers that I pass, because if not, that means no more cheese fries, ice cream, and chocolate. And we just simply cannot have that.

K's friends and sister are going to be throwing her two baby showers in the coming month or two, and K has invited me to both. I am honored and overjoyed that she wants me present at her showers. I feel so lucky to have such an amazing IM! (And amazing IF, too!)

26 Weeks!

We're 26 weeks! Well, in about 90 minutes, anyway. Everything is still going great! T kicks a lot, mostly my ribs, and she seems to really enjoy kicking when I'm trying to sleep. My ribs are getting sore, but not unbearable yet. I've realized this week that I'm getting to that point in my pregnancy where I can't seem to get comfortable, and this results in really crappy sleep. I've been waking up quite a bit at night to either change positions or get up to pee (again. and again.) and it takes me a good 15 minutes to get comfortable enough to fall back asleep. And the heartburn, ohmygoshy'all. They say if you have heartburn, you'll have a hairy baby. If this is true, T is going to look like Chewbacca. I've pretty much run through every over the counter medication, so I'm starting back at square one with Tums & Zantac. So far, it's not working.

But I'm not complaining! I know K would give her right arm to be peeing every 5 minutes and burping acid, so I am not going to complain. I try to keep K & J updated on the little things, like T kicking a lot of what I'm craving these days (pasta, cheese fries, chocolate milk- just FYI) because I don't want them to miss anything. It won't be long until they'll be sending ME updates- haha!

Here's a picture of me at 25 weeks. Even laying down, my belly looks big! And as my mom so kindly pointed out, it's bigger than my head :)
