Never a dull moment

This little guy likes to keep me on my toes. I had my 30 week appt yesterday so Dallin and I headed to Showlow. I wanted to do a few things there so it was easier to take Dallin with me. Dallin didn’t like my appt and didn’t like anyone touching me. My doctor came in and measured my uterus. It wasn’t measuring right and at my last appt it was. My doctor wanted me to get an ultrasound done to see why he wasn’t growing. As he left to find Leanne (ultrasound lady) my heart just dropped. All I could think about was the last time we had to find Leanne- we got bad news with our miscarriage. My doctor seemed to be really worried so I was trying not to think about things and just to calm Dallin down. During the ultrasound, Dallin just laid his head on my chest and laid next to me. We enjoyed watching baby brother and he was a great comfort to me. I was so relieved when she said he was measuring just right and doing well. My doctor said it’s probably the way I am carrying him. He said not to worry because the baby is growing perfectly. Well, the worrying mom in me is back. I will probably worry until this little guy is in my arms. As we left the office, I had to fight to hold the tears back. I told this little one he can’t scare me anymore. He’s done that a few times. The best part was that we got another cute picture.

He looks really snuggled in there tight. Leanne said he sure looks like Dallin. We can't wait to see him!

Oh yea- my glucose test came back normal. YEA!!! I don’t have to do the follow up 3 hour test.

The Best Husband

This next Wed. I have my 28 week doctor appt where I get to do my glucose testing. With Dallin, I was 2 points over and they made me go back to do the follow up 3 hour test. Of course my numbers were fine and I was told it was something I ate. Darn all those lucky charms I ate. I HATE getting my blood drawn. So, I don’t want to do that this time. Last Mon. I decided I would cut out sugar and while I was at it no bread. I still am eating sugar in food but don’t add it to anything and no sweets, candy, cookies, ect. And I love bread but it goes right to my hips. So, I was going to be good for a week and a half. No, I’m not as healthy an eater as I use to be and this little guy has a sweet tooth so I knew it would be hard. Ryan told me since he loves and supports me he would do it with me. He was cutting out sugar and pop. Ryan has a big sweet tooth so I knew that would be hard. We both have been really good. I was so touched by Ryan’s support. Thanks honey for being right there with me. I don’t know what I would do without you!!

This is me at 27 weeks. Yes, I finally feel and look pregnant. It’s crazy how my belly just popped out there overnight about a week ago. Some ladies at church told me they were beginning to hate me because I didn’t even look that pregnant. I am glad to have my belly. This little guy is so active. But, he was getting bigger and his home wasn’t. I wasn’t feeling him move as much. Since my belly has gotten bigger I feel him day and night again. Now our favorite thing to do at night is watch my belly move and jump. This guy does some neat tricks. I carried Dallin more along my back so my belly didn’t do many tricks. We are loving this. We are excited- only 13 weeks to go!! We can’t wait to hold and see this little guy and tell him how much we love him!!

Tally and Colby

Tally and Colby came to spend the night at our home last week. We love them and had so much fun!! Dallin was sad when they had to go home. We need to do this more often.

We had lots of fun playing Monopoly. We stayed up till 11:15 playing and had to finish in the morning.

We made yummy brownies and they had fun frosting them and getting all gooey!

We made some birdhouses.

I think we looked for Easter eggs for 2 hours. They didn't want to stop and loved the hard places Ryan found.

Tally is going to be a great big sister! She took Dallin's hand as we ran to the store.
