Bare belly...

Here is a picture taken on our recent vacation...I have gained just about 20 lbs total and I am 28 weeks and 4 days along...lots of belly:-)

Happy Friday...

Today I got great e-mails from my IP's...I recently send them some small baby books - I love books and know that M (IM) loves books as well - so what could be better than helping to start the babies library:-) Well I got two very sweet thank you emails today - M&M glad you liked the books!!

I cannot believe how quickly time is passing. I am almost 30 weeks along now and M&M are getting closer to holding their sweet little bundle of joy.

As I am growing...reality of my impending delivery and Baby V's arrival is starting to sneak up on me. Sure this ending is part of the process but it always get a little scary for me right about this point. When you are first pregnant - the little bean is .. well a little bitty bean....not so much anymore. Once I am big and round - well then reality really sets in. Although I have had relative easy deliveries with my own children, birthing a child is not pain free. I pray that everything will go smoothly and that labor and delivery will be a wonderful experience for all of us. I am looking forward to delivery day - I know it will be a very special time for all of us....M&M will be parents and I cannot wait to seem them holding their little miracle.

28 week OB appointment...

Today was my 28th week OB appointment and I had the wonderful glucose screening to look forward to...yummy...nothing better than a heavily sugary drink to chug down in 2 minutes...yuck! Anyway I asked the nurse when I would get my results and she said she would call tomorrow but only if it was bad simply I told her not to call :-)

I am feeling great and the check-up went well. I did not get to see Doctor E as she was doing a delivery at that point. Instead I saw the midwife...she is a hoot! Weight gain was good. I am up 4 lbs from last visit but blood pressure was good and baby V's heart rate about 135 bpm (I think). My belly has grown .. ohh my has it grown!! It measured 32 cm and I am at 28 weeks..yikes ... where will I be at 40 weeks! Anyway I asked the midwife about it and she said it is normal to be measuring ahead especially considering this is my 4th pregnancy.

Baby V continues to be very active. I feel her a lot all over my belly so I know she must be doing flips in there! Before long she will not have room for that anymore.

...well we are off on a vacation down the OR coast...can't wait to get away for a little bit with all my sweeties:-)
