28 weeks

Little girl is moving more and more. Somedays it feels like she is moving my whole stomach! I had another ultrasound and Rase is an excellent technician!! She got to see all of the heart and was very happy with what she saw. She said that if she gains a half pound a week like she is suppose to then she will be around 8lbs when she is born but she is measuring 1cm bigger than what she is suppose to be so I am hoping that she comes a little early. Not to early! but early enough that she won't be huge. Also I have been gaining like I am suppose to-at about the middle I thought maybe I was gaining too much too fast but now if I gain a pound a week like I am suppose to then I will be able to lose most of it during labor!! I am hoping to lose all of it and be back to my pre pregnancy weight by the first 8 weeks. Big goal I know but I can hope and wish. Today I was looking for a movie and looked at the pictures of David and I holding Keagen and I don't remember what it feels like-which is really frustrating but it also makes me look forward to holding Kaitlin that much more! I can't wait for her to be born and us be able to bring her home.

27 wks

I am officially in my third trimester! It is so hard to believe that I have a little over 12 weeks left! Actually I am hoping 12 weeks from today! I am hoping that she will come on the 10th of May so that she comes on a Monday so it is a week before a full Sunday. I went in for my last appoinment and have now started going every two weeks but they decided to throw at me my one hour glucose test and they said that I had to have the results back to them before my next appoinment! I called Ben Archer to see if they do it here and they don't... so I had to do it there which took forever so my levels came back elevated and now I have to do te three hour glucose test on Thursday along with another ultrasound because little girl has decided to b stubborn and won't roll over so they can see every part of her heart (which is beating strong-I might add) and then the follow up after the u/s. Alot for one day!! My mom bought me a glucose meter so that I can check my blood every morning so that if they try to put me on medicine I can show them my numbers for this week and let them know they are crazy! Your glucose number should be between 70 and 120 and I have been 79-107 every time! I will do some more research on GD before my next appointment though just so I know what to expect. Today I got to steam clean Kaitlin's room and David set up the changing table so hopefully by the end of today we will have a good portion set up and ready for our little one!
