Week 27

(Note: My husband gives the best foot rubs)

I found this photo very appropriate for this entry. Sat. evening I was doing errands none-stop, bridal shower and ended the evening at my Mother in-laws home attending a Christmas Party. My feet were completely swollen and in so much pain by 10:00 I could barely stand! Chris is amazing though and made up the bed for me so I could be level and give the blood circulation moving again.

I've treated my legs and feet poorly from skating the past 15yrs, which includes many times freezing them to the point of no return! This has left small points that remain numb, nothing like the whole foot thank goodness! I'm usually the type to bare the pain, but the motivation to do so is hardly reachable lately.

Can you believe I have 13weeks left? Time is passing us so fast!! I'm trying to soak in every moment of this pregnancy! You only have the first once and as Thomas S Monson mentioned along the lines that we're given one opportunity to live, so I better enjoy these years before their gone!

Chris is going to make such a wonderful Dad, he's finishing painting the crib and dresser Friday, preparing us for the move in 3 weeks! I love my husband and last nights 2 hour conversations driving back to Provo regarding goals we have in raising our children give me so much to look forward to! (One thing he's determined to do is sit down with them on an individual bases regularly to see how church, school, sports....are going in their life. Something my Dad use to do with each of us kids was take us on a date of our choice, I value the relationship I have with my Dad and hope this new generation will feel the same toward Chris and myself!)
Other then that Wed I have the glucose test, wish me luck! If anyone has any pointers to get it down and what to eat the 12hrs, feel free to share!!

according to the paper they gave me for my glucose test... no sugar 12 hours prior (cold cereal, milk, candy, etc.). But you can eat a high protein breakfast (eggs and toast). Though if you look on the bag, bread has sugar, so who knows. But I was really strict with what I ate because I did not want to do a three hour test! If you aren't sure if there is sugar in it, just check the bag. Oh and take a snack with you so you can eat right after they take your blood. Good Luck!
