the bread is kneading in the bread machine (why do all that work???), the carrots sticks are cut and put away...and the house is quiet....ahhhhh! so i have decided to take a minute and blog. can i just start by saying how thankful i am that the march birthday festivities are done!! i love making cupcakes and celebrating my girls, but it is an exhausting to have them both in the same month. i am so thankful that this next bundle of joy won't be joining us for a few more months (though i am so excited to meet her). these last few weeks have been busy, but mentally they have slowed down. i have been able to check a few things off my to-do list and that alone feels wonderful....hopefully i will be able to mark a few more things off soon.
good news for today....i just found out that i do NOT have gestational diabetes with this pregnancy. that is a total answer to prayer. i wasn't sure how i was going to do it behind on this blood type diet and all...it would have been very complicated, but God knew...why do i doubt??? oh, i and i just realized that i only need to work four extra shifts to make up for my maternity leave...i may try to get them all in this month so i can actually enjoy the last month and a half of pregnancy....and not suffer from complete exhaustion before she comes (because i know i will endure once she gets here). hmmmm, what else is good about today....oh, the sunshine, grocery shopping done...i am sure there is more. now if our accountant would just call us and tell us that we are getting back an amazing refund, that would be the cherry on top!
i am 27 wks today, so that means i only have 13 more weeks to go. the time is starting to fly by. i am really excited to meet her, but seeing as how this is probably our last go around i am enjoying this pregnancy to the fullest. i really do love being pregnant, i feel great, other than my silly sciatic nerve....it's killing me. i love feeling her move around inside. she is super active around 1:00 pm, 6:00-7:00 pm, 11:00 pm...and if i am at work 3:00 am! i think the girls really enjoy watching my belly grow...they continually remind me how big my belly is getting (at least they haven't told me that my backside is getting bigger too...ha!)
well, i just heard the fan click off in alaina's room, which means she will be on her way down any minute. yep, here she comes, gotta run!
PS. thanks to everyone for coming to the girls birthday bash on saturday. i know the weather wasn't great this year (first time in almost seven years that we haven't had nice weather at their party), but we really appreciate that everyone was able to come. they had a blast, and i just enjoyed being with my family. love you all!!!
