Pregnancy update...

Check out that belly...taken at 28 weeks!

I went to the doctor's yesterday for my 28 week check up. Things seem to be going well and moving right along other than the fact that I am huge, have reached my total weight gain that I did the whole pregnancy with Andrew and I feel like I could birth this baby tomorrow. Well, there seems to be an explanation for that...I am measuring 32 weeks ahead- a whole month ahead. I am really not surprised because this whole pregnancy I have felt like I was a month further along that I really was.

In the beginning at got a positive pregnancy test at 3 weeks- which is REALLY early. I have shown much sooner and felt much larger. I have gained much more weight and just felt so big so much sooner. Now, yes this could be just because I am having a girl and it could mean that I do have 12 more weeks to go, but at this point I would not be surprised if this little girl is born in July, instead of August.

I am at the point in my pregnancy where I go to the doctor's every two weeks. I am making my rounds seeing the two other doctor's in the practice- only because my OB is due at the same time as my original due date. They have not changed my due date, but I have sort of thought all along that it was off (only because I ovulated really early). So with all that so say, I a feel good, but big. Baby girl Loveall has a great heart beat and they told me I passed my Gestational Diabetes test with flying colors! So I can not complain! I will keep you all updated in two more weeks.

Oh and we think we have decided on a name, but if you know could change in a week! We will be sure to tell you sooner than later...

Emily, I'm so happy to hear an update on the baby! I am so intrigued that you are growing so much faster with this baby. I am convinced it's the girl factor. I was comfortable with both the boys during pregnancy, but as you know, Bryn was a different story. I bet you will go early, considering you were early with Andrew. I can't wait to meet her!
Oh, and happy very late b-day to Andrew! How could I have forgotten, considering his b-day is the day before Bryn??? He is so precious and I am so thankful God gave him to you and Matt. We miss you guys! Love you lots!

I just spent some time catching up on all that y'all have been up to recently. How exciting! Seeing St. Louis & hearing about graduation totally made me want to go back to visit. :) It's such an awesome place.

I'm glad your pregnancy is going well. I'd love to get together sometime. Maybe this week if I don't have the baby in the next few days? I'll e-mail.
