7 months!!! (28 weeks)

so here we are entering week 28!! ahh i just can't believe i'm 7 months!! i'm entering my 3rd trimester!! wow!!

here is a link to a video we made a couple weeks ago with our new FLIP HD camera we got for Christmas for the baby from the Hodges :) check it out! Here is the (now working) link

I had my Glucose test on Wednesday...and well, i was supposed to fast for 2 hours prior and only drink water. i asked my co-worker to give me a lunch break in time to keep the 2 hour window. we were also told in one of our birth classes to eat high carbs for the 3 days prior to the test and it would make your body used to a higherglucose level and therefore be used to producing more insulin...anyways, i kinda did that- not really though. so back to my 2 hour fasting time- well i was in the OR doing a case and my sweet student brought gummy rock candies in that morning (b/c they're my fav!) BUT really, i mean really, i'm not a candy or sweets type of person, so its only RARE that i actually eat candy anyways... sooo i come back from lunch and theres another emergency in another room, so i'm sort of distracted and everyone was in such a fun mood that day- my nurse friend, Zeh starts eating the gummy rocks-he loves them too! so i'm like- hey, share my friend! haha one thing lead to another and i've eated like 3 of them!!! he hands me my 4th and OMGOSHHH i realize i'm supposed to be having my test in an hour and am supposed to be fasting!! ekkk so, of course, everyone tells me i can't take the glucose test it will mess it up, etc... with our busy lives and as hard as it is to get out of work in time to get to the DR i didn't wnat to cancel.... so we get there and i told the DR i accidently ate gummy rocks (seriuosly how stupid did i feel... i'm a medical professional!! HAHA) so she cringes and says i can't do the test today, so i tell her i drank a huge thing of water on my way and convince her that i only ate like 3 of them- it should be fine.... so we go on with the exam where she said everything looks fine and i'm measuring perfect (which i still struggle with when i see people in my birth class that are due after me and are WAY bigger than me- or people at work) so its good to know i'm on track :) get my blood drawn and we go home

i get a voicemail the next day saying my glucose came back at 148 and the cut of for diabetes is 135!!!! omgoshhhh so i immediately start thinking of all the horriblethings and then stop for a minute and pray-- this is not in my control and i cannot change anything, Jesus is in control and will lead us through whatever He places in our path... oh yeah and the CNM said she didn't think the 3 gummy bears did it :( i'm still mad at the gummy bears! HAHA

so i have to call tomorrow morning to schedule my 3 hour test (and have to miss 1/2 day of work) and get my blood drawn 3 times, etc to see if i am truly gestational diabetic-- so everyone PLEASE SAY A PRAYER that it was just a false positive and that everything will be jsut fine! i trust this in JESUS NAME!!

so other than all that fun, we also got the baby furniture in this week!! and Dave put up one of the pieces today :) yippie!! Below are pics
i also continued my craziness and cleaned out all the closets and drawers and have 2 huge bags full of clothes to donate, reorganized all our shoes, got the baby clothes that we have gotten all washed and hung, did like 7 loads of laundry and uh hummm assisted the master at assembling the furniture (emotionally haha) we then went to the gym everyday this weekend and got the house all cleaned oh yeah did i mention the 4 hours we spent on accounting homework sat am?!

so as i sit here typing, Dave is working on finishing 1 leg of his side project and has been ABSOLUTELY amazing at helping me take care of the house, making me baths, making me sit down and not letting me do anything on top of being a rockstar at work, and keeping up with all he has to do! he's also been super supportive with everything thats been going on lately- i couldn't live without him and am SOOO thankful God saved such an AMAZING man for me :) i'm such a lucky girl!! i love you hunny :)

  1. Hey mama! You look great! Sounds like you have been super busy and productive. The furniture looks nice. 7 months is crazy! :) I'm having a baby in a crazy is that? Ha. Let me know when you do the 3hr how it goes. I'll say a prayer. I still don't get this though...why would they recommend tricking your body into giving an different response than it normally would by having lots of carbs the days proceeding the test. The purpose of the test is to see how your body NORMALLY responds to high glucose. Maybe I'm too goody goody to try to 'cheat' on a test or maybe I'm just TOO pregnant to think anymore. Ha! That's probably it! :) Maybe you can clarify... Oh...I also couldn't get the video link to work. It takes me to a log in screen for your work??

  2. Love the funriture...good job Dave! I can't wait to see the crib with all the cute blankets and sheets. 7 months already...time is flying! Btw, I also couldn't get the video link to work.

  3. You will be so glad you have Roomba when the baby comes out. It is still my best friend with benefits. Love the belly shots and the cute new boy clothes. You have to check out Petit Bateau. There clothes are so soft and cute! Karen
