I went to the doctor yesterday for my 26 wk check up. Yesterday was the yucky glucose test. It actually doesn't taste as bad as it could. I did a great job of chugging it in 1 minute flat! This is a huge accomplishment for me. I'm more of a sip girl.
Anyway, all went very well with the check up. Vitals were good for both of us. Boy! Nathan Alexander (we finally picked a name) is growing growing! I've gained 22 lbs to date. This is quite a jump for me with approximately 14 weeks to go. I gained about 35 lbs with Sydney over the entire pregnancy, most of which accumulated in the last two months of pregnancy. So, I am curious to see what the final count will be. I certainly eat a TON more now than I did with Sydney. I'm also not drawn to healthy foods. Last week, don't laugh, I ate a meatball sub for lunch four out of the five days. I couldn't get enough of them. I totally blame Nate. Anyone who knows me, knows that I really don't like eating the same thing day after day. Lately, anything Italian and mmmmm. I'm supposed to have a birthday dinner for my mom, dad and sister at the end of the month. I was debating about what to prepare. I keep coming back to lasagna and I know it is selfish! :)
So, I guess I'm starting to get closer as I was informed that since I have to come back in two weeks for my Rhogam, my two week visits start now. IKES! Where did the time go? I have so enjoyed this pregnancy. Sure, I was yucky sick in the beginning, but once I got past it, it has been smooth sailing. I have the standard gripes (i.e. leg cramps, constant bathroom visits and sleepy syndrome), but all in all this has truly been a remarkable experience. I love my Sydney dearly, but that pregnancy STUNK! I'm so glad I get to see this time what the fuss is about. I never understood why some moms would talk about how much they LOVED their pregnancy and what a JOYOUS experience it was for them. I thought they were lying or freaking crazy. Now, I understand! :) Remind me I said this later when I am complaining I want this baby to be born. Ha ha!
Jess, I'll try to post a belly pic soon. I have so many pics to post. I've got to play catchup. :)
