At my last appointment, when I was 28 weeks, I had to have blood drawn for the glucose tolerance test. They also tested my iron levels. I got the results back today and everything was great! She said my glucose levels were "awesome" and my iron level was in the normal range. I also gained 2 pounds since the last appointment, which is normal. They say to gain about a pound a week during your third trimester. So far my weight gain has been just right. According to my home scale, I started out around 114 pounds. Currently, I weigh around 132 pounds. I still have about 9 more pounds to gain if I gain just one pound a week. So, it is looking like I'll end all of this at around 141 pounds.
In my photography class the other day, I was talking to one of my students about how much weight I had gained. He said, "It's ALL baby!" haha! I don't think Jonah is 18 pounds..but I knew what he meant! Almost all of the weight I've gained is in my belly. It is huge! I can't believe that it is going to get even bigger! I'm very happy that I haven't gained a bunch of weight in my arms, legs or face! I just this week started noticing that my face looks a little fuller. Hopefully, it won't take me too long to lose it after Jonah gets here!
On a different note, here is a sweater that my mother-in-law bought for the little man. Whales, of course!
I finally finished the orange valance for his room. I like it!
Here is the complete beach outfit for Jonah. My mom bought the hat, sunglasses and flip-flops. Jesse and I bought the trunks and matching rash guard shirt. He'll be super cute at the beach!
The other day, I found some items on the Facebook Putnam County Yardsale page. I bought an orange Moby wrap for just 2 dollars...and I bought this playmat for only $10.
Here is a wooden Melissa & Doug toy that my mom bought for Jonah. He probably won't be able to really play with this for a while....but it really looks cute in the nursery!
