Eli update

I'm 29 weeks now.  Only 10 more weeks to go.  We got to set our repeat c-section date last week, we picked February 15, 2012.  So 2.15.12.  Not bad, but I am still secretly hoping my water breaks and he decides to come on 2.12.12.  A girl can dream can't she?

I've started to gain a bit more weight, I'm still only up a total of 11lbs in 7 months.  Kris' family all said at Thanksgiving that I look "small" this time.  I guess that's a good thing, I do feel like I'm a bit smaller even though I'm at a heavier weight.

26 weeks pic - new one next week
I failed my 1 hour Glucose test, so yesterday I took the 3 hour test.  Everyone complains about it, but frankly it was a nice break for me.  They put me in a room with a black reclining rocker and dim lights and told me to just read or sleep the time away.  Didn't have to tell me twice, I enjoyed 3 hours of quiet time!  I hope I passed, but if I failed then we will deal with it.  Either way, just having to deal with this has really given me a kick in the butt.  After Eli is born I really need to get back on WW and lose the weight.  Like seriously lose weight, I have 100lbs I can easily lose, 115 would be a nice touch though, that would put me at about 155.  So yeah you will all need to really motivate me.  I need to be a better size so I have energy to keep up with my boys!

I'm still feeling pretty good, most days.  Some days I'm a lot more uncomfortable, but that's to be expected at this point.  I have been having some insomnia though, so I have no moved on from Tylenol PM to trying Unisom.  It does seem to help a lot to get me to fall asleep.  Eli is a very active little guy, Aiden felt him kick the other day.  His face was priceless, he kept telling daddy "mommy's baby felt hand" aka I felt mommy's baby on my hand.  He also kept telling Kris to touch my tummy to feel baby.  It was a very sweet moment.

I just took my one-hour glucose test this morning. yuck, yuck, yuck. Crossing my fingers I don't have to do the 3-hr test. I almost failed the 1-hr test with my son, so hoping I pass again. Hope your test results are good!

I tried to pick my daughter's birthday as 9/9/09, but they wouldn't let me :-P haha I was practically arguing with the nurse scheduler about it, too. She ended up with a 9/11 birthday, which, while sad, at least it's one people can't help but remember! Now this baby is due May 9, and I'll have another C-section, and I don't care what the date is as long as it's not on mother's day! I just want to enjoy that day without being cut open!

Ooh, third trimester! Crossing my fingers the test is negative. Wow, I'm having flashbacks here. (Our boys are 11 & 8.)

I hear you on the weight loss. I finally got my rear in gear and am 83 pounds toward my 120-pound loss. It's slow going, but worth every minute. 155 is my eventual goal, too, but people tell me I'll want to go even lower. I guess we'll see! Anyway, this has turned into all about me -- the point is, you CAN do it! Later. ;)

Oh hoping your test is negative and you are looking cute and all happy pregnant. I love the 2nd - beginning of the third trimester. It is the best.

Good luck with the glucose test - ergh. I went on WW after I had my son, and it worked SO well! But no need to worry about it now!
