Happy 24 Weeks!

Hello again! So much has gone on in my life since the last update, so I'll catch you up real quick.

After Katie and family went home, we were told we had to move out of our house so the landlord could completely renovate and repair it entirely. So we had 10 days to move out. I am still kind of amazed we did it, honestly. DH had just started working nights before the last update, so I pretty much was on my own for most of the packing and move out duties. In the end we hired movers to help get everything to the apartment we moved to. Half our stuff is in a storage garage here at the complex. We are hoping to be able to return to the house in 6 months.

While Katie was visiting she brought us these awesome Belly Bud things that help me be able to share their voices with the baby. This is what my belly looked like the first time I used them :)

Shortly after we moved in, I took a belly pic, at 22 weeks 4 days.

Now back to my current update!

Saturday we officially hit 24 weeks!

To celebrate hitting 24 weeks, I took a belly picture.

To celebrate 24 weeks in Montana, Katie and Jack built Gummy Bear's crib :)

Today I went to my 24 week appointment. It went really well! Baby Girl is sitting upright and has been for at least the last 5-6 weeks. She likes tap dancing on my cervix. Her heart rate was about 148 this morning, which is good because she was resting (not moving around at all while I was waiting for the appointment) before the Doppler shocked her awake. She did not like the cold gel or the Doppler invading her space and made sure to move around a LOT while we were trying to get her heartbeat.

As for me, I've gained 8lbs total so far, only 2 since the last appointment... that was kind of shocking since I thought for sure I was gaining more than that, with Halloween and all. Next appointment I hope to share the same type of good news, but being that thanksgiving is the week before the appointment, I'm not holding my breath! I crave sweets!

Next appointment is Nov. 27th for a one-hour glucose test. YAY I'm so happy it's not a 3 hour NOR is it a fasting test! I can eat right up til the appointment but nothing during that hour. I just remember almost passing out during the 3hr fasting tests when I was pregnant with my boys, so I'm SO thankful!! After the Nov 27th appt I will start seeing her every 2 weeks. Shocking that it's coming up so fast!!

That's all for today! So happy everything is going well! Thanks for reading along and following our journey!

Real quick I just want to give a quick shout out to Jack, who is celebrating his third birthday this week! Happy Birthday kiddo!! We hope you have an awesome birthday and get to eat lots of cake ;)
