My Strong Little Guy

》video:  my strong little guy 《 The baby books/apps and doctors keep advising not to worry if the baby’s movement lessens at the 9 month mark it is due to the baby’s growth and now having limited room to make big movements because of their size … Acelyn is actually moving around more than ever!

9 Month Mark

Pregnancy Status: Week 36 Current Mood: Miserable but only because I have bronchitis which is aggravating my migraines that are happening multiple times per week as it is.  I’m so excited to meet Ace in less than a month!!! Cravings: southern comfort foods Looking forward to: Seeing my little boy’s face and holding him for […]

Glucose Tolerance Test: 3 Hour AGAIN

Yes, my doctor said I needed to re-take the 3 Hour Blood Glucose Tolerance Test due to her concern that Gestational Diabetes might have contributed to my episodes last week … I got through an hour before breaking out in a cold sweat and nearly fainting.  The nurses let me lay in an exam room, […]

Why So Unhealthy ?

Today was my 32 Week Prenatal Visit and due to my ER visit last week (migraine), one of my doctors recommends that I take the 3 Hour Blood Glucose Tolerance Test … AGAIN. I’m sure she wouldn’t have recommended it if it wasn’t necessary, but I dread taking it again!  Apparently one of the levels […]

Third Trimester Update

Pregnancy Status: Week 32 Current Mood: ugh. Ace is pushing his entire body into my left side which is really painful and also adds to the lower back pain Cravings: none this week Looking forward to: my little boy being born Right now fearing: the discomfort for the remainder of my third trimester Partner’s Status: […]

My Baby Shower

My “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” themed Baby Shower was yesterday, and I must say it was perfect! Decorating Onsies was a hit!  We all had a lot of fun with this, and Ace will have the cutest, and silliest, one-of-a-kind onesies! I was instructed ahead of time to have typical Baby Shower Games too, so […]

What I Wasn’t Prepared For …

With this being my first pregnancy I feel that, during the course of the pregnancy, my doctors should have informed me if some very common and not-so-fun “side effects”. What they don’t prepare you for during pregnancy: *  nosebleeds *  round ligament pain *  urgency (with a little leaking) *  general itchiness *  slightly blurred […]

What’s this? Pressure? Contractions?

I had thought it was strange that in just this past week [29] Ace was moving around in a different pattern and putting a lot of pressure really low towards my uterus … then I started reading about Braxton Hicks contractions.  Apparently that’s the drastically uncomfortable feeling I’ve been experiencing and I can expect it […]

Its So Surreal

Pregnancy Status: Week 28 Current Mood: Hard to say; it is so surreal that soon I’ll be using the words “Mom” and “Son” when referring to my life Hormone Level: Normal-ish but needy Cravings: Nothing specific Looking forward to: “Meeting” Ace Right now fearing: Not having the nursery finished in time! Partner’s Status: He’s excited […]

Glucose Tolerance Test: 3 Hour

Arrived at 8am … My blood was drawn to have a glucose level to base the following tests on, before drinking the sugar solution. Finished the red sugar solution drink at 8:27AM which was chilled and tasted like overly sweetened fruit punch.  Yes, I admit I kinda liked it. I’m a little worried about the […]
