I am sitting here waiting for my next class, and I started thinking about my life. Sometimes things don't go according to what you had planned, but sometimes they go even better! Remember my post last february, when I hated life. I had just lost a baby and I was majorly depressed and didn't understand why I had to go through that, "why me?". But as I sit here I am honestly so grateful for my life and how everything has worked out.
I have an awesome husband, who is learning more everyday how to be a better father and husband, and he is so great. I love to watch him with Lucy. He lays on the couch and watches her shows, or he plays ball with her. No matter what he is doing he will stop and listen to what she has to say, he is always so kind and patient. During this pregnancy he has really picked up my slack around the house, he does the dishes, takes out the garbage, cleans up whatever mess In the living room, and helps Lucy clean up her toys, just so I don't have to stress about it. Since I am in school he is also helping me with studying and homework too. He is just amazing. We are nearing our anniversary of our first date, and I am just filled with so much love for him. This whole thing started 5 years ago!!
As I am typing this blog I can feel little baby boy moving inside of me. There is no better feeling in the world. I already love him so much, I seriously feel like this was the perfect time for him to come into our lives. I tell you what, the lord knows what he is doing after all :). He is going to be so loved. He has the best big sister in the world who cannot wait to hold him and kiss on him. He has the best 4 grandparents, and so many aunts and uncles that are going to love him. And a mommy and daddy that are so filled with joy that it's ridiculous!
5 years ago I would have never imagined my life turning out this way, but I would not change it for the world. I am so in love with my family, and I don't think they hear that enough. They have been putting up with my crazy hormone changes and being so supportive to me. I am just so grateful to everyone in my life....

The Fair!!

Pictures from the Eastern Idaho fair in Blackfoot! It was a fun night, but boy were my feet tired by the end. Lucy fed goats, rode a pony, sat in big tractors, and we danced all night to Ronnie Dunn! Plus don't forget the delicious funnel cake, which is the ONLY thing we splurged on.... Yes we are pretty proud of our self control :)

Josh Turner concert

We went to a charity concert for the Idaho meth project and Tyler's favorite country star was performing! Our friends, Kim and Ryan came too! It was a ton of fun, and so great to have my husband all to myself for a night and dance and sing along to our favorite songs!

28 weeks!

Little baby boy is very active these days! I am doing great with my energy levels, keeping up with my prenatal exercise videos from my dr. I have tried to cut out a lot of sugars from my diet and eating less carbs. I have been drinking a lot more water, which makes a huge difference. December is going to be here before we know it! We bought Lucy a little baby of her own, with a bottle and passy, and I made a little bed for it, she is enjoying learning how to be a mom herself, she is so excited for her baby brother to come! Tyler loves to lay his hand on my belly in bed at night and feel the kicks and rolls, it's so sweet. I am just so excited for this blessing, he is already bringing about big changes.

Random stuff

These are from our Pioneer celebration here in Pocatello. What a fun day we had! We went to the parade in the morning, took a break for lunch and then headed over to the fair grounds. Lucy was brave enough to ride a big horse with daddy!

We got to watch Tyler's old roommate, Parker graduate from BYU-I. We were sad since this also meant they were moving to Oregon that same weekend.

We have also had lots of fun in the sun this summer.

Tyler and I both celebrated our birthdays as well!

Lucy and I got to go to Bear lake for my family reunion. These were pretty much the only pictures I got of our trip. Lucy hitting her first piniada! Overall I think we had a pretty fun summer.

Week 25

25 weeks! Only 15 more to go....

To do it, or not to do it?

My doctor, well my fill in Doctor  (because my real one is out of town till the end of the month) called me today and told me some troubling news.
Let me go back a little bit. So when I was like 23 weeks pregnant, I asked Dr if I could do the glucose test early, not that I had any physical concerns, I mean I feel great. But when I was pregnant with Lucy, my levels were high, but not high enough to have to do anything about it, and since I am a bit heavier with this pregnancy, I just wanted to ease my mind. So she said we could go ahead with the test. I passed, but once again my levels were kind of high. She tells me that I am going to have to take it again at the normal 28 weeks just to be sure about everything, but there was no concern at that time.
Last week I went in for my regular check up and my "fill in" doctor (she is a little intense) told me that it was time to take my test again. and they also wanted to do an A1C blood test, to see what my blood sugar has been doing for the last 3 months. So I went in and had all my tests done. Well I got a phone call today from the Nurse telling me that all my blood tests looked really good, except my glucose was still kind of high. ugh... so she proceeds to tell me that they want me to go up to the hospital and do the 3 hour glucose test. And I am not happy about it. I had to do the 3 hour one with Lucy, because I screwed up and ate before the one hour one. Needless to say i am do NOT want to do that again. Making a pregnant woman go through that is torture! I really feel like I am okay, and this is going to be the same story as with Lucy. Just high... but not high enough. I already watch what I eat, and I take my vitamins everyday. I just don't want to do this, because I have a feeling that it is not going to tell them anything.

So my question to you guys, who are reading this... has anyone had gestational diabetes, and are there any physical signs that I should have? Like light headedness, or tiredness, I don't know? Like I said, I feel completely normal. some advice would be great.
