26 weeks, 3 days

I had my OB appointment this afternoon. My blood pressure was fabulous (122 over something– thanks Dad for the low blood pressure genes!) which made me happy since I gained 9 pounds in 5 weeks. Both the nurse and my doctor assured me that these are the weeks they usually see major growth. It might not have just been because of the girl scout cookies. I had my glucose tolerance test and should receive the results by the end of the week. If I fail that test, I have to take another one where I have to fast ahead of time and then they take my blood every hour for 3 hours. I really hope I pass! I’m measuring right on track and have been feeling pretty good so I get to go another 4 weeks before my next appointment which will be at 30 weeks! At that point, I’ll have appointments closer together.
Audrey was really looking forward to going to the doctor’s office. She even had her little play stethoscope with her, but since Ethan puked twice today, we decided that it might be better for Nathan to just take the van and kids home and leave the car for me. She was really sad about not getting to go inside! She has no fear of going to see the doctor! She’s still been singing “Jesus Loves Me” all day everyday. Her favorite line is, “The Bible tells me so”.
As for Ethan, well, like I mentioned, he seems to have some sort of stomach bug. He didn’t eat much today. Hopefully, tomorrow will be better.
