28 weeks

So I am 28 weeks and here is my picture...

I am feeling great, and have lots to update you all this might be another relatively short post, and then a couple more posts later. I had my appointment yesterday with my doctor. We had a growth scan again, and our baby is growing well, and not too fast, so the doctor was pleased with that progress. We also discussed my lab results from the day before. I had my one hour GTT, and passed it. Boy was she surprised by that. To be truthful, so was I. I am also not anemic, and things are going mostly well. I did however voice some concern about being able to feel the baby all the time, because of my size and the anterior placenta. She was concerned about my higher blood pressure. Because of that, I will have one check up in two weeks, as is standard after 28 weeks, but then two weeks after that, starting my 32 week, I will be going twice a week for NST's. The rest of my appointments will be scheduled for me when I go back in two weeks. I am a little nervous about this, I feel somehow like it is a burden on my family, as we do not have a second vehicle right now. I am relying on my MIL and my mom to take me to appointments.

On to my previous post this afternoon. Josh and I decided to work a little more on the nursery since we were able to get to IKEA this week and pick up the shelves and a rug for the nursery. I love the floating shelves, and my husband did a fantastic job putting them up so they wont fall down. The rug was a new item at IKEA, and I had picked out a green fuzzy rug instead, but the one we decided to get instead was about 20 or so dollars cheaper. I was so happy with it when we were in the store and when I got it home I unrolled it, and it seriously looked black with grey instead of brown and tan (like it was in the store). I realized though that it was just the lighting, and because of the green in there, it was distorting the color. I am still not ecstatic about it, but it will grow on me and it will be a lot easier to clean than the other one. I think the nursery is coming together quite well and I will be excited to see it when we get the changing table in there and finish decorating the walls with some homemade artwork, to be debuted after a little while....since it is name related and some of you out there still don't know what we are I will keep that under wraps until the time is right.
