Caution...B-U-M-P Ahead!

This past Tuesday, I had another check up at the IWK. Before we left, I got DH to take another picture of me so you can see Junior's progress ;o) This is us at 27 weeks -

A little bigger, no? LOL!

The appointment went very well. The doctor is still extremely happy with my progress. I had to do a gestational diabetes blood test and the first one came back on the high side of the cut off line but the second proved it to be a false positive. I figured that was the case. I suspect it was all the candy and chocolate over the holidays ;o)

The nurse located Junior's heartbeat and it still remains strong. He kept avoiding her though so she had to keep moving the Doppler around. BOTH of us weren't happy when she decided to see if she could feel where his head was! I suspected it was on the right hand side and was right. That was until she found him and then he kept moving again to avoid her. LOL!

He definitely is an active one! I told DH that I hope this isn't an indication of what's to come... Our next check up is on January 31.

DH took this week off so we could do some baby things. Today he's putting the second coat of paint on the nursery :o) We chose Secret Garden by Beauti-Tone as the base and will accent that with stripes along the top of the wall with Muddy Waters (Beauti-Tone). I'm not sure if I mentioned it yet or not but the theme of the nursery is monkeys :o) Junior got his first stuffed monkey for Christmas and I found THE MOST adorable onesie with monkeys on it -

LOL! LOVE IT! He's our little monkey boy for sure :o)

I still have two more 2011 finishes to show you and my current WIPs. See, I wasn't kidding when I said I was way behind on my Blogging!

You're still small enough to be enjoying it, lol. Just you wait!! You'll be so eager to have him by forty weeks that you'll be begging to go in to labor! I hope you both do well all the way through. Enjoy as much of it as you can, and when he starts keeping you awake at night, press your belly up against your dh so he can share in the fun!

Carol said...

Great to hear your update, Cathey--and you look wonderful... Hard to believe, your own little monkey will be here in three months, isn't it?

I love your monkey theme and the room colors are great...

I had the same gestational diabetes scare with my last one, but it also proved to be a false positive after the second test. He was just a very big baby... almost 9 pounds coming from little old me! Almost 1 1/2 pounds larger than either of my other two!

Keep up the good work, my friend :)

Lynn said...
