Bump Bump Bump

I had a request for a picture of my belly! Here I am at my sisters wedding, I am seven months in the pictures! Enjoy, I will try to get some others up before the end! Oh and my hair is super short now so I guess I need an updated pic! Do you think I look like my mom at all?!

What a weekend!

We had a great weekend- I spent most of it in the pool which was great! Saturday night we grilled out and swam and played some fierce volleyball! Then about 10:30 I walk inside our house and it is a sweltering 78 degrees! Now normally our house is set at 68 degrees so you can imagine the shock I experienced! Our air conditioner decided to take a break on the hottest weekend of the year! It was lovely, now luckily that first night was not too bad at all in the bedroom- we had fans and I slept pretty well. Sunday morning it was nice because most of our house is in the shade, however upon arriving home from church it was getting hotter by the minute! My Dad and Shane went and played golf for Father's Day and Ginger and I hung out on the deck and then moved on to the pool for some lounging and more volleyball at about 3. I then decided that it was probably a good idea for me to just stay in the pool for as long as possible! The Zimmerman gang gathered at about 6 pm for dinner and we hung out on the deck until about 10 30 then I went home to the sauna and tried to take a cold shower...when I got out and went to the kitchen for some aloe (I forgot sunscreen) I heard angelic voices coming from our air conditioner unit....my neighbor had come over after an exhausting weekend of being on call to fix our air conditioner! I can't begin to explain how happy I was!!! Thanks Mike, you really are the best!!!! It sure is nice to have great neighbors! So in the end the fiasco was resolved and I slept quite well last night!

Normal!!!

Ok so I was really nervously awaiting my glucose test results that I had to take last Thursday so I had to call the office. I had to leave a message but they called me right back with the GOOD news, I am normal! Thank God, I did not want to do that three hour test! I would have dealt with it, sure, but I am so relieved that I don't have to! Bring on the Frosted Flakes, Fruity Pebbles, and Lucky Charms. Stupid cereal cravings. I could eat cereal for all three meals and be totally content, Abbey may come out looking like a marshmallow or Tony the Tiger but at least I would not have heartburn or acid reflux! Last night I thought I was being wise but eating my cheeseburger with out the bun because with the bun meant: mayo, mustard, ketchup, red onion (aka the devil) and lettuce- without the bun meant simply A-1 so I went with the A-1. Bad bad bad idea, I woke up with acid reflux about 4 times. Yes I know I can take Pepcid and Zantac and I will be getting some of that today, but I wanted to complain anyways.

How should I celebrate my test results...maybe a bowl of Frosted Flakes, Fruity Pebbles and Lucky Charms all mixed together? Maybe not...mmmmm maybe a whole pint of raspberries or blackberries...or maybe some Bing Cherries. Yummm

Feeling Good!

Well I had my gestational diabetes test yesterday so I am anxiously awaiting the test results! Hopefully I DO NOT have it. But if I do I will deal with it!

I am feeling good for the most part, the evenings are getting uncomfortable now. My stomach feels tight and well crowded! Which I am sure it is! I got good reviews at the doctor again. I met with Dr. Bowers this time around, I am rotating through all of the doctors at the office in case my doctor is not available when I deliver. My blood pressure was 128 over 80 and I have gained a total of 6 lbs so far and I am measuring right on track for delivering on August 25th! I now start 2 week appts until August and then I will be on weekly appts, how exciting! Abbey is moving around like crazy! Its so fun to feel her kicking around in there! I think I am getting close to being able to "see" the kicks if I tried! Seems all the kicks are on the left side?
