Here is what you've all been waiting for! Yay!!! Enjoy.
In other news, I had my 30 week check-up today. I'm officially visiting the doctor every 2 weeks. A couple of exciting things. I do not have Gestational Diabetes. Yay! AND, so far I've only gained about 14 lbs. I lost a few this time, but nothing to worry about. I did that with Jackson too. A couple of not so exciting things.....First, I have GBS. Group B Strep. I had this with Jackson too and all they need to do is give me antibiotics when I go into labor. This is just to make sure that nothing passes to the baby. The only bummer is that I'm allergic to penicillin and that is what they would normally give you. So, I have to make sure that I remind the doctor and nurses to not give me that. Not such a big deal. I get to stay in the hospital for a full 48 hours too. I was actually thankful last time because of how exhausted I was and North Central Baptist nurses were GREAT to me.
Now for the real bummer!!! Jason and I were planning on going to Houston at the end of August to see an Astros game. That puts me at about 36 weeks. My doctor told me today (pretty firmly) that we couldn't travel. There were too many risks involved. Did you know that if you travel and end up going into labor that your insurance could possibly deny you??? If they dig deep enough and find out that your doctor told you not to go they could choose not to cover you. Crazy! So, yeah....I was pretty bummed and so was Jason. We were really looking forward to seeing that game and a couple of our best friends. :( I guess it will have to wait and it's well worth it anyway!
So, there is my news and my pics. The 2nd one is a TERRIBLE picture of me. That outfit is not flattering at all and it was from Jason's camera phone. Yuck. But, it's a picture. :)
