I know I haven't wrote in here in a while, but I am now officially at 30wks!
We also go the results of the glucose test that I had at our 28 wk visit, and everything was good there so I don't have gestational diabetes thankfully! But I am having gallbladder spasms, which are very uncomfortable, so I was started on a medicine and a diet to help with that. We are going to go back when I'm 31 wks, and I think we'll start the every other week visits after that? I know he had mentioned we may see the high risk Dr one more time just to get his opinion on our possible delivery time due to me having a classical (vertical) incision on my uterus.
It's crazy to think that as early as 7 wks we could be going to have our little girl, or as late as 9 wks away. O_O I told Chris the other day when I realized how close it was that I didn't think I could do it. I think I feel that way this time because with Chloe we knew from about 16 wks that there was a very high chance she wouldn't actually come home with us, so we just enjoyed her pregnancy as much as we could, and never went through any preparations for her to come home. Now we know Puff will be coming home with us and we're going to have a child to take care of for the rest of our lives, it's kind of a surreal feeling this time around.
We also got some maternity pictures done by our friend Mari, with Mari Annelise Photography, which I recommend to any one in our area. I will def be posting them soon, I never took any maternity pictures with Chloe, so being able to this time was def something we looked forward to being able to do.
Other then just being tired, and taking random naps when I don't even think I'm that tired, everything's been going really well thankfully. We've got the nursery basically fully done, just have to touch up a few spots of paint, and get the curtains/ decorations hung. We've got her crib, changing table, and rocker all where we want them to be too.
I guess I will end this post there, and I will def be posting pictures of her room and our maternity pictures once we have everything! Just keep praying everything continues to go well for us, and our little miracle!!
Notes from dad:
I've slowly realized that the days are only getting shorter and the weeks are starting to feel like mere blinks of my eyes. I'm growing nervous, anxious, and overall excited about what is to come. Until this point I've ignored the fact that my life is about to change forever yet again. Chloe's life and (predicted, but) premature passing hit me like a freight train. My life was forever changed by a little girl whom I never got the chance to truly meet.
Puff, I think will bring joy and light back in to my life. As I've said before, I'm out of the dark hole, yet a big part of me is still missing. It will be a challenge to take care of a child full-time, but it'll be a challenge I'll accept with open arms.
In the picture I am 26 wks pregnant with both Chloe and Puff, you can def tell there is a difference in their growth.
