Memorial Day Weekend!

First let me catch you up on my sugar tests. I had to have a 3 hour test done. For those of you that don't know about this test let me fill you in. I had to go in first thing in the morning bc you have to be fasting.....then they take your blood before you drink the glucose stuff, after you do that you have to sit there for 3 hours and they take your blood 3 more times on the hour! I had to have all of the blood taken from my left arm. This was how I spent my day on Friday.

On Saturday Zack and I went to Houston for our old neighbor's little boy's first birthday. He is adorable! I hadn't seen him since August, needless to say he is a lot bigger and practically running from place to place. It really started to set in this weekend that we are going to have a little boy and it will be HIS first birthday before we know it. We stayed Saturday night and headed back home on Sunday. Sunday was pretty lazy. We didn't get home until that evening so we just went to bed. Monday we went to my parents house and swam all day. I decided hat I didn't want to wear my maternity swimsuit and pulled out one of my bikinis. I figured it was just me, Zack and my little sister. No one would mind the belly. I need to take a picture of myself I really haven't taken any since my sister took some over a month ago. I never knew that my stomach could get SO big!

I'm really starting to worry about the whole house hunting thing. We are still waiting to hear about a house that we stumbled across. It hasn't even been put on the market. It is totally true about the whole nesting thing too. I'm really wanting to be settled and get Carson's room ready. We have all of his furniture, but it's in boxes. I want to paint and hang his wall letters and put his bed together.....please keep us in your prayers about the house thing. We have to move out of our Duplex July 9th.

Sugar Blues!

I went to the Doctor again today. I'm down to going every two weeks! I made sure that this time I didn't eat anything sweet today. All I drank was water.....I just knew my sugar was going to be okay! She came in the room and started talking to me about things then she asked me what I had eaten sugar was 2+ AGAIN!! Last time we decided that the 3 oreos I had eaten after lunch was to blame, but this time I REALLY didn't eat anything sweet. I was due for my glucose test by this time anyways, so tomorrow I'm going in first thing in the morning to do it. I'm really trying not to eat anything sweet tonight just to make sure. I really hope that I don't have to do the second glucose test. Hopefully my results tomorrow will be perfect and I won't have to worry about this anymore. I gained a pound over the last two weeks!! I was quite impressed. I think it's normal to gain a pound a week from now on. I just didn't want to see a huge jump like it was last month! I gained 7 pounds in one month! That was almost half of my total weight that I have gained.

On another note, this little boy is the most active thing in the world. It feels like he is stretching every limb out at once and it looks really funny as well. Zack and I just lay in bed and night and feel him tossing around in there and laughing at how weird it actually looks when you just watch my stomach. Those are my favorite times right now! I'm really starting to have some back problems and I'm hoping that they will just plateau out right here. I have ANOTHER cold! It's those nasty nose kids that I work with everyday! I'm hoping I can get rid of it before this weekend! We are going to Houston to see our old neighbors and their little boy. He is turning 1! I can't believe it.

I am going to work on making my blog a little prettier! I just haven't gotten the hang of it yet. SO, other than another cold and some sugar problems we are doing GREAT!

The last couple of weeks!

The last couple of weeks have been full of decisions. Zack and I decided that we were going to seriously start looking at houses. We have found one that we can totally see ourselves living in...SO tomorrow is the day we write a contract on the house. Hopefully we will be able to get it for the price that we want. If the contract goes through I will post pics of it on here. I don't want to jinx the whole thing.

It's amazing how our neighbors have suddenly been able to keep their dogs quiet! They still have ALL 6 of them, but at least they are keeping them quiet.

I had another doctors appointment yesterday. I had gained quit a bit of weight, but the doctor said that it was fine considering I hadn't gained much until this point. There is def. no denying that we are going to have a belly is getting quit large! The doctor said that everything looked good and that I have to start coming every 2 weeks. I can't believe that we are to this point. I can't wait to meet this little boy sometime in July.

Zack and I got to get a 3d-4d ultrasound done yesterday! They started the scan and Carson was facing my back...I could not believe that he was going to be so stubborn. It took a lot of mashing and me changing positions to get him facing us....then he kept covering his face with his hands! He finally decided to show us his beautiful face. It took a long time though. This is my favorite pic that we got
