21 weeks pregnant


Can you believe I'm 21 weeks pregnant? Well, I can't. Each week that passes I get more and more stunned...closer and closer to three children. WOW.

Vegas and I feel completely blessed and we are looking forward to the arrival of Firecracker. We have been doing a little prep work and planning...the name is picked out, the clothes have been located, the carseat located (but still in attic) and plans have been discussed...the two plans.

The plans that no wife wants to even think about having...what will happen if the husband isn't at the birth?

Well, let's just not go there.

We're good. We're happy...and everything is going along well.

Went to the OB on Tuesday for a follow up. Got the clear to travel through 36 weeks pregnant. I'm going to have the GTT (glucose tolerance test) done at home over a period of a few days monitoring my blood levels (probably a better alternative then drinking the nasty stuff and not having a real idea as to what my levels are at other times of the day).

Oh, and everything look good! The only concern was my blood pressure which was low...but low is better then high and it wasn't too low! (102/58) Kind of funny because when pregnant the first time around I had extremely high blood pressure!

Well, all is well here with us...we have a 3D ultrasound scheduled in a few weeks. Looking forward to getting some good pictures of A3. Hopefully some that I can share with all of you!

Oh and...we do know the sex of the baby and will most likely share after having it confirmed by the 3D ultrasound. Vegas thinks its a silly game to tell certain people and not others. I guess that's what I get for wanting to not know and finding out because he wanted to know...there is no "happy-medium". I'll also then torture you with our name...and YOU WILL all like have no choice about it!

Ultrasound scheduled in two or so weeks.
