New Clothes

So today was the first day I wore maternity clothes. Right now I don't have to wear them all the time but I sometimes they are more comfortable. I got a Bella Band so I can wear my 'normal' clothes a little longer. The tops are longer and it seams to be more comfortable. I borrowed many shirts and a couple of pairs of pants from a friend. I still need to go shopping for a few things as she was not pregnant during the summer but I am good for now.

Yes that is a skirt, and I wore it to church.

Doctor Visit #5

We had a regular check up at the ob office at 28 weeks. So at this stage they do what is called a glucose test. It's a test to check for gestational diabetes. It's only one hour. You have to fast then drink this stuff that has a given amount of sugar, that kind of tastes like a cross between Tang and half flat Sunkist. Well I 'failed' that one so I had to take the 3 hour test. I had to fast for 10~12 hours before the test started, then during the test I could only drink water. I have passed that one, so I do not have gestational diabetes.

We are still working on the house and the nursery, so things are progressing. I will post pictures when things have more dramatically changed.
