26 Weeks!

It seems as though I am writing my weekly increase post more frequently, which is good that means time is flying.  This week I had my last every 4 weeks Dr. appointment and now starts the every 2 weeks appointments.  Annabelle is measuring 1 week ahead but the Dr. said it is still hard to tell and that doesn't mean she will be here earlier... hmmm I wonder how they measure that anyways because I am sure my measurements is going to be much different than someone who was way skinny before getting pregnant.  Her little heartbeat was going strong at 140bpm.

Our next appointment is at 28 weeks and I will need to do the 1hr glucose test, I hear it is oh so tasty... NOT!

Annabelle is starting to kick more and harder so I can feel her from time to time each day.  We also got some Belly Buds so she can listen to some classical music each day and we have had them for a while but really just started using them.

Next week is Thanksgiving and the end of the year will be here before we know it, thank god!  I am very much looking forward to having Annabelle here with us and though we might not be totally ready for sleepless nights (who ever is) we are very much looking forward to them with her.

I have been reading a book that was given to me by friend Danielle (thank you!) on breastfeeding and who would of though how much you need to know.  But it brings up some very good points about not letting the hospital give her a bottle of pacifier while she is learning to breast feed and many other good tips.  I think I can do all the reading I want but until she is here I won't really know what to expect until I am in the thick of it.

This weekend we need to work on painting the molding Jerry put up in her room and getter her alphabetical letters sanded and primed.  I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!!

I promise to post more pictures soon, I know I have been slacking on the picture front.

  1. The glucose test really isn't that bad. People make a much bigger deal out of it than needs to be. It like flat orange soda. So long as you just drink it all before it gets warm you're good.


Thank you for your comments!
