25 weeks!!

And 18 pounds heavier! That's what I've gained so far, 9 of those in the last 5 weeks (since our last appointment.) Dr. K says I'm absolutely fine and that I'm measuring great. I love feeling and seeing the baby move, although BB is quite lazy. Chris doesn't get to feel or see very often because it happens so randomly. Maybe as I get into the 30's we'll get more action.

I am so, so excited about our upcoming sonogram....3d baby!! I hope we get some really good shots and that we don't see anything below the waist. Although I'm thinking that if we do accidentally find out, it wouldn't be the worst thing in the world. We'd still keep it a secret, but I'd go on a huge shopping spree :) Here's what a 3d u/s looks like for a 26w old:

I ordered our glider & ottoman. I need to order animal pictures for the wall and a monogram decal for above the crib. I think we have enough clothes & blankets to do our first load of baby laundry! My registry is done. I feel very ahead of the game.

My next appointment is Oct 9th (our 4 year wedding anniversary!) and I'm dreading it b/c I have to take the 1 hour glucose test. After that I start going every 2 weeks...which is just insane. These last 100 days are going to fly by. I wish I could be pregnant forever! I at least want to hold out until Dec 19th. I want to make it to Winter Break, then BB can come anytime after that!

I'm off to enjoy a beautiful Fall of the last quiet weekends ever.

Isn't 12/19 Chris's bday?? I only know that cause 12/18 is my bday. Maybe you'll have a xmas baby. What is your exact due date. I know I was hoping Jake would come early those last couple of weeks. But he came right on time.

Yes, 12/19 is Chris's b-day :) It's also the last day before winter break. He would love the baby to be born on his b-day! Our exact due date is January 1st.

The glucose test is SUPER EASY. I was intimidated but it went well. I had the drink in the fridge and poured it in a glass wine glass and added a few ice cubes to make it look like soda and it tasted good. (Not GREAT but still good.) I had a breakfast full of protein--protein rich wheat pancakes and turkey bacon---tons of water and no fruit. I passed with a 76 and I think cut off is about 135'ish. You'll do great!!

For the glucose test they gave me the drink at my previous appt and i just had to drink it an hour before the next appt. I actually thought it was good. Tasted like orange gatorade. A new years exciting. I can't wait to see pics of your 3d baby :)
