week 27!

on tuesday, the baby did not stop kicking all day. all day. the whole day. and when i got home, alex felt a few minutes of what i'd been talking about. we have a very feisty baby in there, and it seems a shame that the only way she can express herself is through violence.

week 26

we just got back from breastfeeding class, and had aunt jodi and eric over for desserts! baby LOVES desserts! at the beginning of the week, we had our childbirth class - so now we're entirely prepared, right? there's nothing else to learn?

week 25! success!

if success is measured by whether or not one's belly reaches the batman book, that is...

this week we took the glucose tolerance test, and it wasn't nearly as bad as i had feared. i got fruit punch flavor, and it tasted just like kool-aid. not something i would drink every day, but not gag inducing, either. according to the doctor, my swollen feet, growing rear, and ashkenazi heritage combine to make me a prime candidate for gestational diabetes, so we're waiting and hoping to not get a phone call later in the week. the baby has upped her kicking quite a bit, and for most of today i felt like she was trying to make a break for it.
i also decided that i hated all of my clothes, so i bought myself some new tops and a skirt to make myself feel better. next up - haircut! i haven't had one since march!

you gotta see it to believe it!

after last night's post, alex and i spent a good 10 minutes watching my belly - because now we can SEE the baby move. from the OUTSIDE. who knows what sort of havoc she's wreaking in there - we just know it's super awesome to watch my tummy jump around.

week 24!

so let's do a little math. 24 weeks. each month has 4 weeks. 24/4 = 6. this means that i am 6 months pregnant. yowza. we had our first anniversary this week, and went out for a lovely dinner. right now, the baby's going crazy!

edited because i accidentally used week 23's photo again - sorry for the outfit duplication.
