So much has happened since my last bump date. I was 18 weeks along when I posted and now I'm 31 weeks (tomorrow).
Two weeks ago I went in for my one hour glucose intolerance testing. I never failed my other two tests when I was pregnant with Ava and Lily so I was sure I was going to pass this time too. Wrong. I failed by 5 points. So last week I had to endure the three hour test. That means I had to drink more of that syrupy drink, they had to draw blood from me 4 times and check my blood sugar level! Thank goodness I passed! What a relief!
I was looking forward to last Friday's appointment because I was able to see the baby on the ultrasound! He is measuring 2 weeks a head and is doing just great. He had hiccups and it was just so great to know everything is still on track. He is healthy with a heart rate of 161 bpm. Since he is measuring 2 weeks ahead that means I could either have a big baby boy or he may make his appearance sooner than Thanksgiving. I'm hoping he arrives early! He's already 4 lbs., 2 oz. and is in head down position!
Baby C has been moving around a ton. Lily felt his big kicks for the first time and she was so intrigued.
I barely have tops that will fit me. I've resorted to wearing Noah's t-shirts at night because they are more comfortable than squeezing in even my bigger shirts. Been getting up more at night to use the bathroom too.
Momma has gained more weight. I hit the scale at 155.6 lbs. That means I've gained a total of 25.6 lbs. already, more this time than my previous pregnancies. I still have approximately 9 weeks too. Oh well, it will all be worth it.
I can't wait to meet my little man. We have not decided on a name. Noah is pretty set on Leviathan Max Cruzan, so I guess it's just me holding out on a name. I don't think I will decide until he gets here.
This morning my work threw me a baby shower. The breakfast spread was so yummy. I feel so blessed to have such a great work family. This weekend is my other baby shower thrown by my besties and sister. I'm so excited to see everyone and celebrate the baby again! Baby C is spoiled already!
Baby C at 30 weeks
