Pregnancy Journal: Week 25

This baby is getting bigger by the second!! I keep looking at my stomach and wondering how in the world can things get bigger and then, low and behold it does :) I had my 6 month doctors appointment last week and failed my glucose tolerance screening, so now I have to take off work later this week to go get the 3 hour glucose test done. Bummer!! I am not looking forward to having my blood drawn 4 times in 3 hours, that is for sure! After a lot of feeling down and disappointed, I've started to feel fairly optimistic about it. I did a ton of research and it looks like the screening isn't all that accurate. In fact, 85% of women who fail the first screening, end up passing the 3 hour one, so I have a pretty good shot at not having gestational diabetes.

Other than that bummer news, my doctor's appointment went really well. I am measuring exactly where I should be and my weight gain is right on target. The baby is active all of the time, which makes me wonder just how active of an infant we are in for. He seems to never sleep! Anthony still has a lot of fun feeling my belly and feeling him kicking and rolling around. Now we can definitely see him make my stomach move, which still is kind of crazy to watch. Sometimes I will be laying down and out of the corner of my eye, I will see the blanket move because of a really strong kick!

Anthony took his exit exam for graduation and he did pretty well! His instructor is the type that likes to make everyone feel nervous until the very end of the semester, so she hasn't posted any other grades. Now there are only a few little assignments he has to complete, about a weeks worth of clinical hours for him to do and he will be done! We are so ready for him to graduate :)

Love the updates! I didn't realize that you have to go through a three hour screening and have your blood drawn 3 times if you fail that first glucose test! Dang! I'm sure you'll be fine!
You look super cute pregnant! I seriously think a pregnant belly is the cutest thing in the world! Enjoy every moment of it and flaunt that belly- can you believe you are taking part in creating your CHILD?! SO COOL!!

Congrats to Ant! We are so proud and impressed with him!!!
