September 1st

That's our due date! Hopefully Baby Reese will be right on time as we both love the month of September. However, if he/she is healthy and wants to be a tad early that's ok too!

Today I had my follow-up appointment with my OB. He was happy with all of my blood results and I passed my first 1 hr gestational diabetes test! My hemoglobin a1c levels were the same so "borderline" normal aka right above, but no cause for concern. He was super happy with the ultrasound and said that he's not concerned at all and that my symptoms are great! We see him again in one month for our anniversary and we'll be 13 weeks which means we can announce it to family and friends on facebook and really get it out there for people in our personal life that have been kept in the dark.
 
I've been feeling awesome symptom-wise so that's always a good thing. I don't have much nausea anymore unless I get really hungry and I still have some food aversions. I'm tired all the time, which is normal, but it makes for a long day. Sleeping at night is still lacking and I wake up every couple of hours and it's not very restful. Napping isn't working too well since I can nap in one hour increments before I wake up to go to the bathroom. I also wake up super cranky and feel a little sick, but only when I nap. Oh, and I'm hungry all day...seriously, about every hour. And the emotions! Sometimes, I have to laugh at myself!

I'm not complaining much because I honestly love that I get to be pregnant and I'm so grateful that we have this opportunity. We are praying every day for our baby and know what an amazing miracle God has given us!

For the next month or so, I'll be working on my sewing (some for baby, some for some craft shows) and working part-time at the sewing gallery. It definitely keeps me busy and I can only do so much, but it's good for me. I'm hoping to have more energy in the next few weeks and I'll be able to start walking a little bit. Other than that, I'm just really happy and tired.

Each one of your posts is so inspiring, wonderful, and shows how good God is. I'm so happy to hear about all your symptoms. The worse you feel, the more you know it's really real at the beginning... until the bump starts to show. Soo happy you had an awesome appointment and you and baby are doing well. :)
