Sometimes I send an e-mail to my mom and sister with the subject "Just a Few Things..." They are usually really funny. I put things Bailey has said or funny things from the week. This is just going to be a few things from the last few weeks:
*Went to the OB yesterday. Everything is great so far. I'm technically 30 weeks 5 days (as of today). Adilyn Cate is measuring 34 weeks. However, I am not a skinny thing so the doctor says that 1 cm of that is probably just my extra belly weight. Either way, she is measuring 3 weeks ahead.
*Bailey is getting VERY excited to meet her baby sister. I just hope she is still excited when she actually gets here! If you ask her what her sister's name is, she practically yells "ADILYN CATE!" I said, "what if we just call her Adilyn? Or what if we call her Adi?" NO MAMA, HER NAME IS ADILYN CATE!
So, I guess (at least as far as big sister goes) she will be Adilyn Cate. And, I'm sure she will get onto you if you call her otherwise.
*My dad wound up back in the hospital on Dec. 23rd. It was VERY scary! Luckily, he was having a reaction to some medication and he is just fine. But, over the last 3 Christmas's we have had 3 deaths, one almost fatal car accident (of my grandpa), and a trip to the ER with Bailey where they told her her heart was in the wrong place (they were wrong but it was still scary). So, every time we get a call around Christmas time telling us somthing could potentially be wrong, we get very nervous.
*We visited my parents for Christmas and it was LOTS of fun. We took Bailey to the square in Fayettevill and took her to Fun City. It was a BLAST! Very inexpensive and the whole family got to play.
*I'm WAAAAAY excited to watch this year's (or next years 2012) Rose Bowl Parade. My sister is in the Siloam Springs Band and they will be marching. So, if you watch, look for the brunette with the sleigh bells. :) They will all look the same but you can still pretend you saw her. I'm so excited! We have always had a good band and when I was in school we went to the Citrus Bowl Parade. It was fun b/c that happened to be the year that the Razorbacks went to the Citrus Bowl and the Razorback band paid for our entire band to attend the game. So, I'm SUPER pumped to watch Monica on Monday!
*My 34 week ultrasound (a perk of having gestational diabetes is an extra ultrasound) will be on January 23. This will help us get an estimate on how big Adi is. (Side-note, I am not super fond of the name Adi but I'm sure she will be called that so I am preparing myself, I do love Adilyn though) :). I will have another ultrasound at 36 weeks with my doctor just to see how things are going. Yesterday, she said I am at greater risk of having a still birth b/c of my gestational diabetes. But, I am not worried. I had GD with Bailey and controlled it with diet (like I am now) and she was fine. Doctor said that normally there aren't complications and when there are it is normally with patients who are on insulin. I guess I have pregnant brain b/c total I had gained 5 pounds my entire pregnancy. I thought it was 2. Anyway, I had lost 4 at yesterday's appointment which puts me at a total gain of 1 pound! I know there are still several weeks to put on a few pounds but I'm happy with her gaining and me not!
Here are a few (but not many b/c we used my moms camera for the weekend) pictures from the last few days:
