There are 96 days left until baby Estes is due.  I assume she will come a bit early but who knows?  I feel like I haven't blogged in forever but I guess it's only been 2 weeks (easy to tell when you post pregnancy updates, lol).  There's not really a lot going on.  I'm really uncomfortable and I know it's just getting worse. School is really hard right now.  I don't know if it's just me being emotional or if something is really weird here.  Anyway, I'll be glad when the baby is born and I can have a few weeks off.  And at this point a few is about it.  A couple weeks ago, my dad had emergency open-heart surgery.  It was pretty scary but he is ok now.  And, I had to take a day off to have my 3 hour glucose test.  I'm trying so hard to keep my sugar down and most days I do pretty well.  At my OB appointment last Wednesday I had lost another pound!  I'm trying not to be overly thrilled b/c originally I gained 5 and now I've lost it so I just weigh what I did when I got pregnant but I still have 3 months to put some pounds on, lol.  Though, on Saturday, I start my 6th month.  During my 5th month with Bailey I gained 8 pounds so I'm glad that is not happening (yet anyway). :)

24 weeks and pictures

24 weeks 1 day :)
Bailey broke the mirror so I had to turn it upside down and of course, that's the dirty side.  And I always forget not to wear black but it's SO hot today I don't want to wear long sleeves!
 Sister, wasn't having the best time at the shower so Memaw Janet (my mom) told her a story to calm her down before she could open her "big sister" present.
 I am SO Swollen but at least my girl is adorable (as usual) :)

 She is SUCH a poser!
 And this is Zach's cousin's wife.  She is about 5 weeks farther along than me.  Her mom made some comment as SOON as she walked in the door that I MUST be due any day since Kandi is due in January.  She was MORTIFIED when I told her I wasn't due until March 4.  It really doesn't bother me, honestly.  I got big fast with both of my babies and my mom did too.  Bailey was a perfect size and even if this one is bigger, it's just one of those things.  And, as you can see, Kandi is only a foot taller than me!

Viability and a baby shower

Well, I promise to post pictures later.  I have been sick most of the day.  Head colds are NO fun and I have given this baby as much medicine as I feel comfortable with today.  I have finally reached viability.  I DEFINITELY want this little girl to stay put for several more weeks, but I am so happy that I have finally reached viability!

Also, Zach's family threw us a nice shower today and I got lots of cute things (and lots of stuff I don't need, lol) but it was fun and I feel so blessed.
