31 Weeks

Here's the 31 week picture...as you can see Timothy had a "slight" growth spurt. I've learned this week that the idea that pregnant bellies are round is a myth (as you can also see in the pic) - I think Timmy has fun seeing how lopsided he can make me look ;) I'm still feeling good but tired - who wouldn't be tired if they had to get up to go to the bathroom a minimum of 3 times a night - ugh. Everything is pretty much the same but Timmy is getting stronger every day (most mornings I wake up to what feels like running in place on my ribs) and we are getting more and more anxious for his arrival. I am also excited about the idea of not being pregnant anymore - thank God we have had such mild weather so far! :)

30 Weeks

30 weeks already...I guess time really flies when you are uncomfortable ;) I really can't complain though - I'm still feeling great physically - I'm just tired all the time. The uncomfortable part is being out of breath when Timmy decides to stretch in the direction of my lungs/ribs and when he decides he would like to use my bladder as a trampoline...ow. But really those are great things because he's moving around all the time which is what a healthy baby should be doing :) I suspect I won't have much trouble losing the baby weight because I'm betting Timothy will be super active like his dad...and have me chasing him all over in no time ;)

Glucose Lab Results

So I had a doctor appointment yesterday - and the results of the Glucose Tolerance Test came back normal! She (the doctor) said everything looks great and my pregnancy is going very well - praise God! Thanks for all your prayers! I'll have my 30 week picture up today or tomorrow.

28 & 29 Weeks

28 Weeks:

Sorry I missed this post last week - it was really hectic. I flew home from SD that week, and it took me a while to get my bearings again. This was a great week though - I felt great and Timothy did his first huge kick and it startled me and my sisters who just happened to be watching! We watched a little bump move all the way across my belly - the strength that Timothy has already amazes me :) I started following the "diet" for my Glucose Tolerance Test this week also...so more about that in the next paragraph:


29 Weeks:
Still feeling great this week - just getting tired easily. Timothy never stops moving lately either - which is fun :) As you can tell I've entered "Warp Growth-Spurt Phase" again ;) There was a morning I woke up and I really thought I had gotten bigger overnight! On Tuesday morning I went to the lab to do the Glucose Tolerance Test (it was not fun). The very first thing they did was take a urine sample, then they drew my blood. Then they gave me the most disgusting thing I've ever drank, and then I sat in the waiting area for 3 hours and they drew my blood 3 more times, once every hour. Needless to say I have some ugly bruises and I'm afraid people will think I'm a druggie and have been shooting up or something. No word yet on the results, but I have another doctor appointment next Tuesday morning - so hopefully she will be able to fill me in so I can fill you all in :)
