26 weeks and counting

Yesterday I was 26 weeks pregnant. I got to celebrate by having another sonogram. My husband wasn't able to come due to work so my best friend came along instead. It was fun. The sonogram tech actually used to work at my last doctor's office and she had done all my sonograms with Bear. She spent a lot of time showing me everything and making me a DVD to take home to my husband. There is definitely no doubt that this one is all boy so it was a relief to get that confirmed. My friend was all excited and was a little teary so it was good to have her there.

Then we went to lunch and stopped at Ulta to look at makeup. After I dropped her off I got to go get my hair done and do a little Target shopping before I picked up Bear from MDO. All in all it was a great day. I also got the results from my glucose test from last week and my glucose was good so no 3 hour test. Yippee! I did turn up anemic but I will just need to take some iron and I'll be all good.

It just feels so much more real now. It's hard to believe he will be here in 3 short months. I measured 26 weeks 6 days but they are going to stick with the original April 21st due date for now. He was 2lb 3 oz so it looks like I am on target for another big baby (Bear was the biggest preemie in the NICU).

Congrats! My biggest fea while pregnant was failing that glucose test and having to eliminate sugar, it was the only thing I ate, and probably what led to such a big baby, but I didn't want to give it up.

Oh how exciting! It makes me miss being pregnant. But only for a brief moment! ;oD Enjoy these days! It's bittersweet when you look back on it when you know you'll never have another one....
