Well here we are, 11 weeks away from meeting out precious angel!

Olivia is getting so big! I have only gained 17 pounds and the doc says another 10 is okay. I hope it is doable! Olivia will be gaining about 1/2lb each week from here on out. That is about 6 more pounds! Ack!!

On another note.... here is the background with my thyroid. When I first got pregnant I was taking 75mcg. They moved me up to 125mcg and 175 mcg throughout. Well, when I went in Jan. he said it needed to be increased MORE! So, I am taking 200mcg. After taking it for a month, regularly, my numbers went from 399 to .3! WHOA! NORMAL range is .3-3.0. Sooo, 399 was completely unacceptable!!

So, because of all this drama... starting at 32 weeks they will consider me "high risk" and I will do weekly NST's (Non-Stress Tests) at the hospital. I'm pretty excited, being able to hear her heartbeat and see her movement on a machine for an hour each week will be pretty neat. Basically, they just hook a machine up around my tummy and watch her heartrate/movement, etc. for an hour.

Other than that, all things are great here!

Court date on March 7. That's about it. :)

I will write more this weekend, but just thought I'd let you all know, I PASSED the glucose test!! Yippeeee, I can continue with all the sweets I want!

Olivia is doing well. She has her times where she just moves and grooves and anyone can feel her. And other times, she doesn't budge and won't move at all (sorry Aunt Joyce!)

Thanks for all your continued support, love, and prayers. I am feeling so completely blessed!

Doctor's Appointment

So, went to the doctor yesterday for my glucose test. I was completely dreading it, but after it happened, there was nooo reason to be worried. We got there and I had to pee soo bad. So I asked if I could go ahead and pee in the cup while I was waiting. I ran into my favorite nurse and asked her it was ok to go ahead and pee even though I needed to drink the glucose. Mind you, Mom is in the waiting room thinking I am just going pee. Mom is my backbone and goes to every appointment, therefore she was supposed to reassure my while drinking this crap. So, Shelly (the nurse) instantly runs off to get the "glucose cocktail"! I started freaking out! All I wanted to do was pee, I wasn't ready to drink!! (This is where the overreacting and worrying came in). So I chugged the watery sugary mess in less than a minute. LOL, it really was no big deal.

Anyway... Olivia wasn't phased too much by the sugar. Her h/b was 147, which is the slowest it's ever been. I am measuring 25 weeks, so two weeks behind schedule. I have also only gained 16 pounds. I'm pretty proud of that! I am really aiming for the 30 or less mark. I hope I can do it! I know the last 3 months are weight gain time.

The most exciting thing, I now start going EVERY TWO WEEKS!! Aaahh!! That means it is getting close! I can't believe it!

The next appt. is Feb. 27th. The 3D u/s is Feb 29th, I can't wait to see her again!

Martina McBride

So, I have heard this song so many times, but just today did it REALLY have an impact on me. I am strong because of my daughter!

In my daughter's eyes I am a hero
I am strong and wise and I know no fear
But the truth is plain to see
She was sent to rescue me
I see who I wanna be
In my daughter's eyes

In my daughter's eyes everyone is equal
Darkness turns to light and theworld is at peace
This miracle God gave to me
gives me strength when I am weak
I find reason to believe
In my daughter's eyes

And when she wraps her handaround my finger
Oh it puts a smile in my heart
Everything becomes a little clearer
I realize what life is all about
It's hangin' on when your heart
has had enough
It's giving more when you feel like giving up
I've seen the light
It's in my daughter's eyes

In my daughter's eyes
I can see the future
A reflection of who I am and what will be
Though she'll grow and someday leave
Maybe raise a family
When I'm gone I hope you see how happy
she made me
For I'll be there
In my daughter's eyes

25 Weeks!!

Oh my gosh... 25 weeks down... only 15 more to go!! That's scary!! Here are some recent pictures I took tonight. Don't mind the South Park pants. Haha, they are dad's. I don't think he notices they are gone yet and they are so comfortable. Also, notice the dog scratches... Winston is a violent sleeper. The tattoo still looks normal (Kathryn! :P) and look at all my veins. It's crazy!! Enjoy! :)
