Today was the last appointment while in my 2nd trimester. I was pleased to see that I had only gained 4 pound since the last appointment a month ago (especially since we had our church christmas potluck the night before)! Baby Ringls heartbeat was strong and loud, which always puts my heart & mind at ease. I was lucky enough to have my glucose tolerance test today, which means I had to drink some nasty sugar water substance and wait 1 hour for a test. They want to make sure my calcium and vitamin D levels are where they should be so instead of a finger prick I had to get blood drawn. I think the worst part about giving blood is removing the cotton ball that is taped to your arm. That junk hurts! After the appointment I did some Christmas shopping with mom. We have our family Christmas party in Biloxi this weekend, so I got our secret santa gifts for the party (both of which I wouldn’t mind ‘stealing’ for myself)! I counted it up and we only have 4 gifts/people left to shop for. I am ahead of schedule this year. God bless online shopping & free shipping!!
Tomorrow begins the start of my 3rd, and final, trimester! That means we have 12 weeks to go until our due date (if she comes on time!) My uncle Steve placed his bet on Sarah arriving on March 6th. I’m okay with early arrival guesses, just don’t go pushing me a few weeks back, ok ;) I have to admit, if she comes on my birthday (March 13th) I certainly won’t complain, that would pretty much be the best birthday present of my life. However, I’m still rooting for 3/11/11
Last we have my weekly photo. No post is complete without a photo!
