Pregnancy Month 6+

Wow... can you believe how close we are to meeting our baby boy? Less than 10 weeks and he will be here. We are so excited.

This past month has been a busy one! At our last appointment (around 27 weeks), baby boy was measuring around 2 lb. 3 oz., and growing right on track. He is an active little guy, and I love feeling all of his kicks and wiggles.

This past month I took my glucose test, which was not too bad, but unfortunately I failed.... so then I had to take the 3 hour test as well. The 3 hour test required that I fast for about 12 hours prior to my 8am appointment. By the time my appt was over at about 11:20am, I had fasted for 15 hours and I was so hungry! Thankfully, I was able to meet Lee for lunch right after the appointment, and we got great news that I PASSED! Praise the Lord!

In addition to the glucose test, this past month we finally made some progress in baby boy's bedroom... we (mostly Lee) got the room painted, his furniture purchased, and his car seat/stroller purchased as well. We are still working on getting his bedroom furniture put together, but we've gotten to dresser and glider done, and next will be his crib.

Overall, I'm still feeling pretty good as far as pregnancy symptoms go. Lots of feet/hand swelling, which I expected would happen being pregnant through the summer. This past week or 2 I am just now starting to notice my big belly, and am getting uncomfortable. Sleeping on my side all the time is causing me some back pain, and bending over has become a task I try to avoid, but those are all symptoms I've expected would eventually come. I keep telling myself that if this is the peak of my symptoms, I'm a lucky lady!

During the last month we took our babymoon, a weekend getaway to Nashville. We also celebrated our 5 year anniversary on this trip, making it extra special. We stayed at the Opryland Resort. If you've never been there, I recommend checking it out! It is a beautiful place. We walked around and saw the resort, laid by the pool, ate way too much good food, did some shopping, and we also caught a Matchbox 20 Concert, which was my birthday gift to Lee.

As I'm finishing this blog post, I am now 31 weeks pregnant, and this pregnancy is more than 3/4 over! These past 7 months have flown by. I'm starting to have a mix of emotions: excited to meet our baby and wanting that time to be here, thankful to have this big baby bump and not wanting to wish way this pregnancy, and feeling a little nervous about going into labor, which will be here in no time.

Other than some swollen hands and feet, a mix of emotions, and a growing baby, we don't have much else to report for this month, which is great!! That being said, here are some updates of our baby bump. It's been OVER a month since my last bumpdate, so there's some extra pictures this time... next month's bumpdate will have a few less. :)

Normally this blog post would stop at 28 weeks, but since I'm late posting, here are weeks 29 & 30 as well!
