It's WAY too hot!!

I have been so busy! The weeks keep flying by, and once again, it's Friday. Last weekend, we took once last trip to San Francisco before Magdalena gets here and we had an awesome time! We stayed with my sister and brother in law in Oakley, and then we all went into the city all day Saturday. It was really fun, but it completely wiped me out. We took the BART to the city and did the tourist thing, eating at Hard Rock Cafe and going to Fisherman's Wharf. Then we went to see the Giants play the Diamondbacks at AT&T park. That was really fun, although we had seats way, way, way up and I was so exhausted walking up and down!! The Giants won and it was really fun. I think the most exhausting part was riding the MUNI train back and forth from the BART station, even though it should be only a ten minute ride. Nobody gave up a seat for me, and I had to hold to those handrail things for dear life. My arms and hands were so sore afterwards, because I was so afraid of falling. Mark was holding onto me, too, so that helped. I didn't want to be like "I'm seven months pregnant! Can someone move for me?" so of course I just suffered through it. Oh, well. It's over now..maybe I'm too polite sometimes. I don't like "playing the pregnancy card" and I just keep pushing myself. I talked to the Midwife about it, and she was like "Stop! Listen to your body and if you feel tired, sit down. Don't push yourself too hard." And she forbid me from leaving town anymore. I really wanted to go the Encounter coming up, and I also really wanted to go to conference in San Jose on the 21st of this month. Sigh. Mark will just have to go and report back to me. Well, now on to baby news. Well, I had an ultrasound on Tuesday, and Magdalena is beautiful and perfect. Seriously, she's so gorgeous and such a cutie-pie!!! The 3D ultrasound was amazing and it just took my breath away. She is measuring big, though. The Ultrasound lady estimated that she weighed 4 lbs, 14 oz. The same technician also said over and over again the I was going to fail my 3 hour glucose test because she was positive I have GD. Ugh. I didn't appreciate that and I have been fighting the urge to get really scared about having a 12 pound baby or something. Not like that would be too weird..Mark was 10 and a half pounds when he was born and his mom didn't have GD. I took the three hour test and it was so not fun!! I had to fast for 12 hours (hard for me at this point), then get my blood drawn. Then I had to drink an extremely sugary drink that is twice as sugary as what you drink with the one hour test. It instantly made me nauseous, but I got over it. Then, I had to get my blood drawn every hour for three hours...for a total of four blood draws. Yuck, yuck, yuck. I felt so tired and gross afterwards. I hope I passed it, but I do have a lot of the signs that I have Gestational Diabetes. Oh, well. I have an appointment with the midwives on Monday, so we'll see what they say. Also, the 4th of July was awesome. In the morning/early afternoon, I hung out with a lot of the women from cell group and all their precious little children. We went to One Mile and had a great time having a picnic and swimming. Here's some pictures from the San Fran Trip...and one of our little girl!!

  1. Ug, seriously? People not offering up their seats for pregnant woman is in my top 5 pet peeves. IT IS SO RUDE! I know how you feel, but it's all worth it!

  2. She is so precious!! 3-D ultrasounds are so cool! I wish I could have gotten one. That is really neat that you got one last trip in though before she is born. Are you nesting yet? When is your shower, I would love to send you a gift, are you registered anywhere?
