October Summary

We started out the month with baby showers! We then found out Brian was named Doctoral Student of the Year in his program at NIU! What a smarty pants! Then the Cardinals won the World Series and we ended the month with a record number of trick-or-treaters (nine)!

Working on the little bean's room this weekend... doing some painting, putting up a wallpaper border, etc. I'll post pics when we're done!

Pregnancy Update (30 wks)

Had our 30wk appointment today. Everything looks great (the doctor said "picture perfect pregnancy," so we can't ask for much more than that)! The little bean's heartbeat was 140, my belly measured 31 cm.

Pregnancy Update (29 wks)

I was generously baby showered twice this weekend and had a lot of fun. The first shower was hosted by my dear friends Katie and Janet (Click here for photos!), the second was hosted by Mom (photos coming soon)!

Pregnancy Update (28 wks)

And so the third trimester begins! We can hardly believe it! Went to my glucose screening appointment Friday (standard test for Gestational Diabetes) and had to drink nasty sugar juice, sit around for an hour, and then endure yet another needle while they drew my blood yet again (thank goodness for Brian, my hero, who sat in the waiting room for an hour just to hold my hand for 1 minute)! We should know the results at our next appointment.

Brian's dad was here this weekend and got to see the nursery as it stands at this point (not complete, but close)! The little bean also did some "belly dancing" for him, which was fun for him to see!
