28 weeks ( appointments every two weeks, here we come)

28 weeks today!! This is before I went to my glucose screening and failed. This means I have to go back and do the 3 hour test on Monday morning. FUN!! I blame it on the Christmas season sweets, and having a 2 year old, so I have no energy to exercise anymore after teaching 200 middle schoolers. So, for the next 5 days I am on low sugar, low carbohydrates so I don't have to do it for the rest of my pregnancy. The doctor says that my weight, blood pressure, iron, etc, is great!! so she doesn't think I have anything to worry about, but I'm not taking any chances!!

I have also added a picture of Bekah and I reading the other night. She can no longer lay against my belly. She has to lay to the side, or sit the way she's sitting in the picture. So cute!! Lots of fun!!

Ughh! I watched a friend go through two pregnancies with gestational diabetes and it wasn't any fun. We'll be praying you pass on Monday!

My sister didn't pass one of her tests during her third pregnancy but she passed the long one!! I know it can be easy to fail the first test even if you just a had a little bit of sugar so hopefully, that is case with you!! I will pray that you are just fine!!
Plus, I do remember when I couldn't read to Grace anymore because she wouldn't fit on my lap as well!! (when I was pregnant with Dax) Funny stuff huh!! Ohh, and thanks for the encouragement about labor!! Relaxation is definitely the hugest thing and that is probably why Dax's birth was soo much harder....... because I freaked out in the middle and couldn't gain control back!! I just wanted him out!!
