29 weeks & a little glucose talk

Happy Friday everyone! Not so much for me. I'm stuck at the hospital for the next 3 hours for this glucose test. I haven't eating since 8 last night, so I'm pretty cranky. I wanted to thank you all for your well wishes on this dang thing.

I just got finished drinking the nasty drink, which by the way has DOUBLE the sugar in it than the first time I drank it. Oy. I'm just hoping I don't get exploding diarrhea again. Seriously, that was awful. My stomach is making weird noises & baby girl is kicking & squirming all over the place.


Well, enough of that. Let's move onto more important things. Like, the fact that I'm 29 weeks pregnant. Which means I will have a baby in (give or take) 11 weeks!!! I have to admit that I'm in a small bit of denial. I don't feel prepared AT ALL, because well; I'm not. I keep saying to myself "oh, I still have _ amount of weeks. That's plenty of time to get everything done." I know 11 weeks is a while, but I want to get the big stuff done and over with before I'm so big & uncomfortable that I don't want to get off the couch. Catch my drift?

I guess we'll jump into the survey now:

How far along?: 29 weeks. Holy. Crap.
How big is baby?: about 2.5 lbs
Weight gain?: As of Monday at my Dr. appt, I had gained 4lbs in 4 weeks. So, that puts me at about 20lbs total. I'm guessing that's normal??
Stretch marks?: none, but the way my belly has been itching, I might GIVE myself stretch marks from scratching so hard. I'm trying to refrain from that though.
Maternity clothes?: just bottoms & a few tops. But still getting away with regular tops & dresses.
Sleep?: I still feel like I'm sleeping pretty well. No big complaints.
Best moment this week?: Seeing baby girl on the ultrasound machine with her chubby cheeks :)
Food cravings?: Lemonade from Chick-fil-A. Oh & cheez-its with hot sauce on them. Weird? Hell yes.
Gender?: girl!
Movement?: Constantly. And she has found my ribs. Good times.
Belly button?: Uh, it's non-existent as of now.
What I miss?: being able to clean my house without my feet swelling & hurting
Labor signs?: nope! stay in there baby for at least 8 more weeks!!
What I'm looking forward to?: House hunting this weekend. More on that later...
Milestone?: Making it to month 7!! WOOT!

29 week belly.
That's a fake smile since I was on my way out the door
to come here to the hospital...
Sorry this post is so dang long. It kept my mind off the fact that I feel like I am going to pass out & die of hunger. I'll let you all know how the results turn out!!


  1. Cheez-its with Hot Sauce is definitely a strange funny though!! I love your blog!!

  2. Good luck with the glucose test. I pretty much passed out when the drew my blood for the one hour, so I have no idea what I would have done if I had to do the three hour.

    I got really anxious when I hit week 30 about not having enough done, but then I had a chat with myself. All we really NEEDED, was food for the baby (check, I had boobs), diapers, a car seat, and somewhere for her to sleep. If we had at least those things, we would survive.

    Is that everything I wanted to have, or have done? No. But it was a great start.

  3. HI! I just stumbled upon your blog from Mrs. F and read your about me and thought "that's me!" Dh and I are high school sweethearts, (met in 2000) got married in 07, also did a few rounds of Clomid, and I have a birdie decor thing as well. Weird! Looking forward to keeping up with yall!

  4. What the heck are Cheez-its?! Good luck with your test, I hope you pass this one with flying colors.... and no embarrassing bathroom scenes!

  7. Thank you everyone!! I just got done with the test & I didn't get sick at all!! WOOT! I'm scarfing down Quiznos as we speak :)

I am currentlty 31 weeks along with #2 so of course I love following someone who is going through the same thing and I just went through that damn 3 hour glucose test 2 weeks ago.... YYYYYYUUUUUCCCCKKK... And the sitting around for 3 hours starving was not cool... I am sure you will pass... I did, I was so nervous bc I have been eating everything in sight that is bad for me! Oh well I know from my first baby that the weight comes off QUICK!!
