29 Weeks Along

Technically, I'm not 7 months yet. I should be holding up 6 fingers but I forgot that until I uploaded the pics. I feel nearly as big as I was when I had Taeya. Still have a little room to breathe but only before I eat. Once I eat, I feel like someone has a belt tied around my upper belly.

I haven't been taking nearly as many belly shots as I did with Taeya so I thought I'd grab a couple in the mirror while I was thinking about it. That belly looks huge!

I go in for my next OB appointment on Wednesday. I'll be having a growth scan (ultrasound) done on baby boy. They want to make sure I don't have the same issues I had with Taeya. She grew on the small side from 1/2 way through the pregnancy to the end. I have a feeling this little boy is going to be a lot bigger than Taeya was when she was born. When they measured my belly at my last appt. 3 weeks ago, it was measuring 3 weeks ahead which it NEVER did with Taeya.

Please pray about Phil's job situation. He's in a four hour long interview right now!! It started Monday at 12 and should finish around 4. He has a face-to-face interview, 2 tests and some sort of role-playing scenario. We are praying that God will open the doors so Phil can start working soon!!!

We've been doing some fun things like camping, visiting family and moving Taeya to her old room so look for some pictures soon!

Baby Due Date Poll

At the request of our friend Annie, I created a second baby guessing poll for baby Camp # 2. I currently have a scheduled c-section for November 3, 2010 so there's little chance he'll come after that date. However, he can come early if I go into labor earlier than 11/3. We're pretty much 100% sure this baby is a boy but you can guess girl if you'd like. :) It'll dock you 400 points if you're wrong though.

I'd love for all of my blog readers to participate in the poll even if you don't regularly comment. It's fun for me to see who is viewing my blog. Please don't be shy! I know I have some readers who never comment on my blog and I want you to participate as well. I will mail a $5 Starbucks gift card to the highest winner based on the points that are earned as long as I am able to contact them when the time comes. (In other words, don't be anonymous or you won't receive the prize if you win).

The points are awarded using the following scale:
Point Penalties:(The lowest score wins):

Incorrect gender: 400 points
Date & Time: 5 points per hour
Weight: 5 points per ounce
Length: 10 points per inch

***The poll is located on the top of the right sidebar of my blog.***

May the best guesser win!

Less than 100 days!

Wahoo! I just noticed my ticker says I'm down to 98 days. It's actually more like 93 (or less) because of the scheduled c-section. It's getting closer. 13 weeks 2 days left until the c-section.

I found out today that I passed my glucose test last week. So glad I didn't have to do the 3 hr test. I have to do a 24 hour urine collection because I've been spilling protein in my urine for the past three visits. I think it's just because I need to drink more but we shall see. I feel great and my blood pressure has been great at each visit so I'm not too worried about pre-eclampsia.

At my visit on Wednesday, I was 25 weeks 2 days but was measuring 28 weeks so it seems that baby boy is growing well.
