29 weeks

So, I am now 29 weeks. Sorry it has been so long since I last posted, I am a busy girl :) Well, I was diagnosed with borderline gestational diabetes, so that is stressful and concerning. basically I just have to change my diet and eat different types of carbs and try to stay away from sugar. Since I am just borderline I do not need to get insulin or check my blood sugar levels every day, so that is good. I also have to start exersizing more often. So that leads me to today. I walked about 2 1/2 miles with Ella, who I practically had to drag towards the end. I walked all the way to my in-laws house and then Derek came and picked me up. Then we went to Big Hat Days, and walked more. So I am tired, but feeling very good about myself.
Spring break has oficially started and I am so happy about that. I only have 5 1/2 weeks of school and I will be done forever!!! Which is pretty much amazing, and I am pretty proud of myself :) I am getting really excited about Bejamin coming home, I have had dreams like crazy that we are leaving the hospital with our little boy. I am ready for him to be here and I can't beleive I still have to wait almost 3 months to hold him. Derek is getting very excited too, it is all we talk about!
Speaking of Derek, one of the Chapelins at work told Derek her had a dream about him and in his dream Derek was the Chief! I am not sure how I feel about this...maybe it was a prophetic dream. I thought it was funny, but I can also see that Derek would actually be really great at it. He really cares about this community and wants to make a difference...anways just thought I would share that with you.
Oh, we finally registered..please take a look at our registry (babys r us) and see if we missed anything. I already had an infant travel system/carseats, the furniture, and a rocker so those things we don't need. But, Derek and I are pretty certain that we must have missed something!
We also have a lot of projects going on around the house. We are getting the backyard ready to be seeded, hopefully at the end of this month, plus we are trying to get the baby room in order. Derek is refinishing the furniture, and it looks awesome! It is darker now, and matches so nicely with the walls. We are trying to get more decor pieces, but we are being frugal about that, so we buy bits and pieces here and there.
I feel like I am getting bigger by the day, which is fun, but a little bit uncomfortable. Ben is still moving like crazy but now I get to guess what part of his body I can feel. Of course I can't really tell what is what, but I do know his head is loving the right side of my tummy! The other night Derek and I were eating and Ben curled up on my right side of my tummy into a little ball, it was hilarious because it was like the size of a canetlope, and it was just on the right side, then the left side of my tummy didn't even look like I was pregnant. We were a little freaked out, but were laughing so hard that it hurt. I love those moments!!!

Jax loves the right side of my tummy too! I hardly EVER feel him on the left. It's funny when they are all settled to one side and your tummy is lopsided. Good times! Thanks for the encouragement. A friend of mine volunteered to watch him so that will help hopefully. Plus I'm just praying that I can get into the online classes.

Great update. Lots of info. The bare belly is awesome. I can't hardly see you without crying; knowing I still won't see you for 6more weeks. Dad is feeling bad he doesn't get to see you pregant again. I'm proud of you for walking. Probably made you feel good, even if you were tired. Enjoy your break. Give Benji Bear a hug from his gma.
