i quickly snapped these 29 week bump pictures on my way out the door to meet travis for a dinner date.****
i feel like i'm finally starting to look pregnant. i've gotten many more comments from strangers over the last few weeks. i'm still measuring a little on the small side (27 weeks), but my midwife said it's completely normal.
i took the glucose tolerance test this morning. the glucola was not as horrible as everyone made it out to be. i drank it in about a minute flat to get it over with. it made me a little bit nauseous, but that quickly subsided after the one hour mark. other than that, the appointment went well. i was THRILLED to find out that sylvie is already head down and likely to stay that way. good job, baby girl! her heart rate was very good at 140 beats per minute. seriously, i can not wait to meet this kid of mine!
there is much to be done today! our dear friend, joe, is coming into town this weekend. we're a small stop-over on his drive from philadelphia to iowa. neither of us have seen him since last summer, and i'm so excited to spend some time with him! i need to get this place looking more like our hip apartment and less like babies r us exploded. wish me luck!
****by "dinner date" i mean that i went to the restaurant where he works (and was tending bar last night), and sat at the bar for an hour of his shift. i ate some amazing gazpacho and a delicious shaved vegetable salad. i even had a small glass (probably an ounce or so) of wine courtesy of my husband. ssshhhhhh! don't tell the preggo police!
p.s. sylvie totally has the hiccups right now! since she is head down (i repeat, GOOD JOB, BABY GIRL), i can sort of feel them in my butt. does this happen to anyone else??
