28 weeks

Wednesday, June 25, 2014

This week has been a crazy week. I had my glucose test yesterday, it was a busy day and my phone died at 2pm. I got home at 7 plugged my phone in and had a voice mail from my doctor. I knew this wasn't a good sign as she told me they would only call if something was wrong. I have low iron and very high glucose levels (mines was 180 below 130 is normal). They told me to take iron tablets every day and I will have to start checking my blood sugar regularly. I am hoping that I will be able to manage this though diet and exercise. I looked today to see how many days we had left till we get to meet our baby girl, 12 weeks or 84 days WOW. I feel like time is quickly approaching and the readiness I thought I had is slowly slipping away. Lots to do!

On a more exciting note we leave for our first Breland family vacation.  We are headed to Dauphin Island Alabama on Wednesday of next week, but not before a couple of pit stops. We will leave on Wednesday and take Charlie to stay with my grandma where he will get to stay and run free (well more than normal) for 9 whole days. From there we are going to go see Nate's Grandma Red. I got to meet Red 2 years ago on her 89th birthday and loved every moment I spent with her. So I am so excited to get to see her again and spend the fourth with the whole family there.

I really don't plan on doing a whole lot besides laying in my lawn chair on the beach the whole time we are gone. SERIOUSLY NOTHING!!! We are going to get family pictures and maternity pictures done while we are there so I am just a tad bit excited about that. I found Jennie Tewell Photography after a long search for the perfect photographer, I defiantly think I found her. I LOVE getting pictures done while I am visiting a different state. Its so much fun to get to work with different photographers with all different styles.

Anything making you queasy or sick? Nothing out of the norm

Wedding rings on or off? Off, I can still get it on but leave a little too much pudge around my fingers for my liking.
