28 Weeks

I honestly don't know where time has gone. Everyone keeps telling me is slows down and then it feels like it takes forever for the baby to come but to the two of us we feel like time is flying right past us and finding time to breathe is becoming a challenge. Tomorrow we are 28 weeks! Which means we have less than 12 weeks or 85 days to go. However you look at it its going by super fast. I never thought in a million years we would be sitting here getting ready to meet our miracle our little baby girl. I can't wait for the day for her eyes to meet both of our eyes and tears to run down my eyes. Tears of joy. Tears of long awaited love. 

Pregnancy has been going great. Nothing to much to complain or mope about. If every pregnancy was like this then I would be pregnant all the time! It's been such a walk in the park *knock on wood*. I better be careful with my choice of words because maybe next post I will be posting about how miserable I am, LOL! I haven't weighed myself in two weeks. I know for sure I have gained something because baby is growing and so is my belly. It's like overnight my belly just appeared. For a while I didn't feel "pregnant" and now I'm fitting more and more into maternity clothes and I can see my belly pop out! The most awesome thing to see on a daily basis. Before I used to hate looking in the mirror now I love it and just stare at my ever growing belly. Makes me smile. 

So what would a girl with an easy pregnancy have to complain about? Really, nothing. The only thing I am finding more difficult is keeping my bladder normal. I have to pee all the dang time other than that and mild pressure on my lower belly everything is peachy. Thankfully there has been zero swelling with my feet or ankles. For sure I thought the other day when our temperature hit 105 I would be seeing my feet swell and thankfully nothing. Phew!

So what has happened in the past couple of weeks?! Well, we celebrated 9 years of being together and being in love. I still can't believe I have been in love with my other half for nine years. She is my better half and I truly understand what people mean when they say you couldn't live without them. I could never live without her. She completes me. Her daily smile and laugh still tickle me, and it will never, ever get old.

I also celebrated my birthday. Years before if you asked me how I felt about getting older I would have been sad and terrified and this year I was just happy. Age is just a number. Before, in the previous years I was scared because it seemed as thought birthdays reminded me that we were one more year without being pregnant and our chances of fertility had lowered. This year we celebrated the fact that I was given another year to live and celebrate life. 

In upcoming news our baby shower is next Saturday. Can't wait! Everything is just getting real!

Oh and how could I forget....tomorrow I have my dang gestational diabetes test. Now this is not my first time. My doctor had me have one at 16 weeks and I passed no problem....this time I am a tad scared I won't pass it. I have just been to good of friends with sweets. I hope and pray all goes well. I just want our baby girl to be okay. We also have a doctor appointment! Can't wait to see how all is going.

Well I leave you with pictures of the last two weeks!

Make sure you are careful what you eat day before your test. I accidently ate twizzlers the night before my 1 hour test (baby boy really wanted them and baby brain made me forget about the test at that time lol )and I failed so had to do the 3 hour test which I passed. So musta been those darn twizzlers!! lol

Amanda! Oh my goodness that sucks! I thought about sugar all day long and decided none except the few bites I had in the morning time. I ended up not doing my test because I had a bad stomach ache so Monday I go in!
