27 weeks and 2 days

Yesterday, Josh and I worked on the nursery and got a few things done. We finally have the letters for her name hung on the wall. We bought those letters the day we found out she was a girl... November 2.
I also added the ribbon and bows to these Vera Bradley lampshades that I bought awhile back:The nursery is coming together! YAY!

Today, I had a doctor's appointment. I have been experiencing really strange feelings in my stomach since about 14 weeks. At my last appointment, I mentioned it to the doctor and she didn't seem too concerned but wanted me to let her know if it continued. In the past few weeks the strange feeling has changed to pain. Sometimes it feels unbearable but thankfully, I only experience it when I am sitting upright for extended periods of time... but sometimes it happens just after a few minutes. I let her know about again today and she still doesn't seem really worried. She thinks it may be the baby pushing against my stomach--especially since the pain has increased as the baby's size has increased or it could be a hernea. I won't be able to know for sure until I have the baby. I'm just praying the pain eases up!

Little Julianna had a great heartbeat today. It was 140-- which is about the same as it has been for the past few months. I have gained weight. Today I weighed 154, which is total pregnancy weight gain of 26 pounds. It blows my mind when people tell me I don't look pregnant. I feel like I'm the size of a cow! My blood pressure was also good today-- 110/70. Things are looking good!

I also had my glucose tolerance test today. The drink wasn't as bad as everyone had said. Several women that I talked to told me that they could barely drink it and that it tasted really awful. But I found it to be just a really sweet orange soft drink. After an hour, they drew my blood and I passed the glucose test. I was definitely happy about that!

It was a really busy appointment today because I also had to get my RhoGAM shot. My blood type is B negative so I had to get the RhoGAM shot 13 before my due date so that when I deliver the baby and I are safe because they do not want out blood to mix. The shot wasn't fun at all. I have never had a shot in my bottom and I hope I don't have to have another one anytime soon! I'm sore!

Since I'm in the third trimester now, I will be visiting the doctor every 2 weeks for the next 8 weeks and then every week up until my due date. Hopefully the next visit won't be as busy!
