28 Weeks

So, here we are another four weeks later, and another four weeks bigger!! I am currently about 6 1/2 months along, so I am in the third and final trimester.  It has kind of been a busy month, so here we go.  

I was finally able to get to Greeley to get maternity clothes, so now I don't feel like a stuffed sausage in all of my clothes!!  This is one of my new maternity tops, not too glamorous, but it sure is comfy and cool.  While in Greeley, Janel and Jyl took Dawn and I garage saling and I was able to get some stuff for the baby.  I found a few neutral clothes, a pack-n-play, a Boppy pillow, some bottles, and a bouncy gym.  It's kind of exciting to just be getting stuff for the baby, who will be here using all of it before I know it!!

As you can see, I have grown a little bit since last time, even though it doesn't feel like it.  Matt and I were just saying today how it doesn't seem like I'm big enough to be 6 months pregnant, but we just attributed it to me having more vertical living space for the baby.

Of course I had to put on a tank top so everyone can see just how bit my stomach actually is (the pink is for you mom!!).

I also had a fun time at my doctor's appointment this month as I had to take the gestational diabetes test.  I will admit that it wasn't as bad as I had been anticipating, but it wasn't all that much fun either.  Thankfully I do not have gestational diabetes, so it's all good.  I was telling Matt that I had better not have gestational diabetes because all that  I eat is sugar, so I would have been in trouble.  

My doctor also informed me that I will now be having appointments every two weeks now for the next 8 weeks, and then it's every week after that.  To me, that means that the baby is getting close!!  Matt and I are also signed up to start Prenatal Education classes in July, so things are starting to pick up and soon we will be having a baby.  I  think that we are both anxious and nervous, but really excited!!

Week 24

 So I promised Kiane a few days ago that I would update my blog with new belly pictures (sorry Kiane, I lied), but I finally got around to it, so here they are!!

This one is  just me in one of my work shirts, in which you can definately see a nice sized gap.

This one is for all of you that enjoy seeing every single little bump.  I guess I could say that this month has been pretty uneventful, just lots of movement and kicking and discomfort.  Hopefully next month's post will be a little more exciting for you guys, but for now that's all she wrote!! 

Don't forget to vote for what you think the sex of the baby is.  Matt already voted and I'm just confused, so I will not be voting, but feel free to voice your opinion!!
