Prental Tests: Glucose Challenge Test
Did the 1hr glucose screening test. Failed it by 4 pts, which is ridiculous. Have to do the 3 hr one next week.

Announced Baby's Gender to Family
We had a gender reveal party combined with a July 4th celebration and set off confetti cannons in the backyard. We took pictures of everyone's reactions and then set them in a slideshow to the phonecall recoding I made of the nurse telling us the gender - TEARS!! We wanted a girl, so everyone was happy.

Felt My Baby Move for the First Time
I was curled up in the recliner on my left side, with a full bladder I was just about to get up to take care of, when I felt a tickle really low and to the left side of my front. I put my hand down there to see if it was some weird muscle spasm or gas or something, when I felt it again, stronger - from the inside!! I recognize it and although it's super early, I think the conditions were just right and I felt little peanut move. Last OB appt. said baby was way over to the left side, so that makes sense if that's his/her hang out spot. Haven't felt anything since, but don't expect to until Peanut is a little bigger. Still! Exciting! My other two pregnancies I felt first flutters at 14w and 13w respectively.

Started Wearing Maternity Clothes
Never really stopped. Never liked things around my stomach after Oscar's pregnancy. Loose comfortable clothing has always been my style. But I started showing really early so by the end of May, I had broken out my maternity pants.

First Prenatal Appointment
It was crazy. Got my blood taken, then when I went to get my exam done, the power went completely out. My dr. did a full pelvic exam by the light of the cell phone flashlight that the nurse was holding up. It was surreal. Progesterone was good though!

I'm so thrilled we actually have baby in there! The whole appointment lasted forever, but we got to see the little guy/gal on a big screen and it had little arm and leg buds and you could see the baby shape! Oscar was just a little bean, but this one we could see the baby. HB 133. The pics they printed for us were not the best. We saw way better live. Plus, it looks like the egg came from my left ovary!? My left tube has been blocked for years, so apparently it got unblocked.

Bought Baby's First Outfit
I'm addicted to Kickee Pants - they make babies clothes made of 95% bamboo and super soft. I got one for Oscar in light green and it was his first and only outfit. I bought one for this little bean the other day - Peacock color. It's like a deep sea blue, so it'd be good for a girl or a boy.

For a week, I'd been getting these horrible headaches every night. DH had to bring be frozen peas to put on my head at one point... It was my first tip off, but he just thought I was coming down with something. Once I got a good line on 10dpo, I decided to tell him. I waited till the kids went off to school and then accosted him on the way to the shower, hugged him, and asked him if he'd be ok helping me through a couple more months of headaches for a big reward at the end. He freaked. Was so happy!
