28 week appt & new belly shot

So I had my glucose test today and now just have to wait for the results. It wasn't so bad drinking that dreadful orange drink but I hope I don't have to do it again. If I do fail, I'll have to do a 3 hour glucose test which is not fun. I gained another 5 lbs in the past month so now I'm up to gaining a total of 24 lbs. Guess I need to lay off the sweets! :) The dr. said I'm measuring at 33 weeks! Ummm . . . will we see Brennan a month early? My best friend, Heidi, said that can change each visit too. It could be the position she is in or she's going to be a big girl.

Dr. Hood & I also talked about scheduling my c-section. I wanted to schedule it for Sept 26th but he is off that day so we are going to try for Sept 25th. I'm praying we'll be able to schedule for this day so then I'll have a full week at home with my mom here to help. Then my second week of recovery Stephen will stay home with us. It will be nice to have someone home with me for those 2 weeks of recovery since I won't be able drive and Ethan will be going to preschool 3 days a week.

Everything else looked good at the appointment. My blood pressure was good and Brennan's heartbeat was strong & fast. He said she is head down which would explain the pushing that I keep feeling. Apparently she's shaking her little booty at me a lot! I'm not sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing . . .

9/25 is Kaylee's 1/2 birthday, so Brennan would be exactly 6 months younger! Sounds like everything is going well - fingers crossed for the test results!!

Hi Stephanie. I've been keeping up with your's and Stephen's blog since Brad left PCS Partners. And I believe Brad's talked to Stephen recently. New babies are so exciting. Our little one, Addison, will be 6 months on July 22. And Layna will be 5 on Sept
25. I think that must be a popular date for babies because we know several others with that birthday. I hope your testing comes back normal. Good luck.

Hi Rhea,

It's good to hear from you. I can't believe that Layna is going to be 5! Time flies. Glad you guys are doing well.
