Yesterday we were lucky enough to go to the Dr. and get a 3D image of our little squirt! Oh my goodness does that boy have some cheeks!! I was so excited to see those chubby cheeks on the screen! I can't even contain the excitement I have to just squeeze those cute cheeks once he's here!! Those cheeks are definitely a contribution from me!! I was such a chubby baby, and I had and still have some good pincher cheeks. Haha Derek laughed because he knew those cheeks definitely do come from me. The picture we got is a side profile view, so it's kind of hard to pick out a lot, but it was kind of fun looking at his facial features and pointing out which side of the family it came from. He definitely has a full set of lips that comes from Derek, and we are thinking maybe the nose as well. Hard to really say until we see him in person!! How exciting!
|Look at those pincher cheeks and those big lips!! Love this boy so much already!|
I am currently 27 weeks. Next week I enter the 3rd trimester- CRAZY!! I can't believe how fast this pregnancy is going! I have so much to get ready for it's unbelievable. I still am feeling good, but this past week I feel as though my immune system is down and I've been really really tired again. My low back has been hurting, and I wake up with a charlie horse in my leg about 2 times a week. Ugh, those are the worst!! I only fit into 3 pairs of my own jeans, and 2 pairs of my dress pants. Most of my shirts don't quite cover up my belly anymore, and I am getting to the point where I am about to give in and go buy some maternity clothes. I have gained a healthy amount of weight, and the baby is growing at a healthy pace and everything in my pregnancy looks normal. I am so grateful for this!! I had to take the glucose test yesterday to see if I have gestational diabetes. I haven't found out the results yet, but the way things look, everything should be fine! I was dreading drinking that dextrose because everyone made it seem horrible! I actually didn't mind it at all. Would I do that every day? No. But was it that bad? No. I'm glad it didn't make me sick like it does to some other women.
|27 weeks and doing well!|
Derek was so cute enough to take me out and get breakfast after my Dr. appointment because I had been fasting for the glucose test, and he knew that I was starving!! I am so grateful for such a sweet husband that takes care of me and wants the best for me!! I am grateful for where I am at in my life right now. I am really happy. I like my job, I have a healthy pregnancy, I have an incredible spouse, and we are lucky enough to expound our family and meet our sweet little boy in 3 short months. We know that so much change is coming, and we can't even comprehend everything that is going to happen. But we couldn't be more happy for this change. I love stepping back from life and realizing all my many blessings. Sometimes I wish time would stop in it's tracks and I could freeze this exciting stage in our lives!!! I hope that the rest of my pregnancy continues to go well, and that my son will enter this world with good health and strength.
