We made it.
This is the moment in my pregnancy where I breathe a sigh of relief.
We had a doctor's appointment last week, at 27 weeks.
It was a year and a half ago where we went to the same appointment, at 27 weeks, with David, where I drank that delicious orange drink in preparation for my glucose screen, and then was given the worst news of my life.
But this 27 week appointment was different. I left the clinic on cloud nine. The baby's heart beat is strong. His/her head is measuring at 29 weeks (yikes!) and everything else is measuring right where it should. At 27+ weeks.
I've been waiting for this. I needed this appointment to go well. I needed this pregnancy to go well.
And so far, so good!
I had a minor set back and had to go in for the 4 hour glucose screen, but good news, I passed!
I'm starting to expand around the middle. I'm feeling WAY more movement and I LOVE IT. I love every minute of it.
I'm still craving sweettarts, but definitely finding more ways to get those delicious seasonal root vegetables and greens into my diet.
I'm not worried about my weight, I'm staying active, doing yoga 2-3 times/week and I'm still spinning (although I'm nearing the end of this) once/week.
We are allowing ourselves to envision what our lives are going to be like in January. It's going to be here so soon!
And I'm letting myself get excited. Knowing nothing is guaranteed, but also knowing things are different.
I can't wait to meet this little nugget.
