Weekend Update

Friday evening Jeremy and I attended my annual work holiday dinner (we always do it after the holidays so more people can attend). It includes dinner, drinks, fake casino night and prizes. It was a great start to the evening. After the party was over some of my close co-workers and I headed to our favorite Irish Pub downtown to continue the party and celebrate my birthday and another good friend’s birthday. It was a great night. We didn’t get home until 2am though and boy I was tired…exhausted really! LOL Not used to all that dancing and staying up past 10pm anymore! Saturday was a great day of rest and sleep! :O)

In pregnancy news…I got my Gestational Diabetes test results back….I PASSED!!! WOOT!! No 3 hour glucose testing for me! I really hope that is the last time I have to do that test, well until we have another! ;)

25 days until the BIG ULTRA SOUND! Counting down those days!

Day 100!

Ummm…yeah you read that right, today is day 100 of being knocked up! I have been pregnant for 100 days, doesn’t seem possible.

Yesterday we had our 16 week appointment. It went well. We heard a healthy heartbeat and my doc told us that the heart rate is 149.
Now if you google heart rates and gender you will see this:

Heartbeats
One belief that has been around for some time, and even had some acceptance in the medical community at one point, is that the fetal heartbeat differs for boys and girls. If you're having a girl, then the fetal heart rate will be above 140. A boy will have a heart rate below 140. However, that pesky science has reared its little head again to say that this is complete fiction. A baby's heart rate is not affected by its sex until it is born, when a girl's heart rate will increase considerably compared with boys during labor.


So now we just have 28 days until we have our ultra sound that will tell us for sure – boy or girl! Can’t wait! Less than 1 month!! YAY!!

On top of the appointment yesterday I had to do my first Glucose Test, I had to drink the really sugary orange drink in 5 minutes and then 1 hour later get my blood drawn. I am just praying that my body took that extra glucose and got rid of it the right way, I will find out in a couple of days what my glucose blood draw numbers are. Prayers for a low number please!! I really do not want to “fail” this test because if I do I have to go in for a 3 hour test to make sure I do not have Gestational Diabetes. More waiting…

Well that’s my update. Happy Friday everyone!!

The nursery plans begin...

Time for decorating!!

Last weekend we went to Babies R Us and picked out our crib and nursery set. Here is the picture.
Photobucket

We love it. The best part is that it is a convertible crib which means this kid will be set for the rest of his or her life in the bed department! Yes!!!

To add to the full picture of the nursery here is the set that we are buying for the bedding. We decided on Classic Pooh. Pooh Bear was my favorite toy/stuffed animal growing up so I decided it was perfect for our nursery. Our plan is to put up a white chair rail and then paint a sage green below and do a tan on top. Neutral and soft even though we are planning to find out the sex. I really never thought you had to do Pink for a girl and Blue for a boy. Neutral colors are great! :O)

So thats that...I can't wait to get started!

38 days until the BIG Ultra-Sound - BOY OR GIRL?!?!?
