28 weeks 4 days and very thankful

Our appointment today was full of good news. No comment was made about my weight (up to 148 from 125 pre-pregnancy) other than “everything looks good.” Baby boy’s heartbeat was in the 150s, belly measured 29 cm, and I didn’t have any ill effects from the glucose drink to test for gestational diabetes. In fact, if the bottle had been any bigger, I would’ve had more! In my opinion, it was like a sports drink/gatorade/powerade. Results from the test will be in on Wednesday and they will only call if something isn’t okay. 

I can’t help thinking how thankful I am to be here. I can’t help but pray for everyone who has been and is praying for us. I couldn’t help but realize that my due date is two years almost to the day that Baby Drew went to heaven. Now, here we are and I don’t think we could be happier. We now know love that we didn’t before – love for each other and from those supporting us. Very loved. Thank you.
