I missed my last weeks post. I took a long weekend and went to Florida. I have never been there and it was AMAZING. I am such huge sun girl!! I seriously would be better off in a warmer climate if my whole family didn’t live in Wisconsin.
Once I got home I caught up on laundry, cleaned the house, and got ready for the week. It took me awhile to catch up on sleep. I took a red eye out to Florida and took a super early flight on Sunday, I do not do well with little sleep. The next trip I go on I will pick better flights.
This week we had our 24 week doctor appointment. We went over the results again from the 2nd ultrasound and everything looks great. Baby H’s heart is growing great and working well. I can’t believe at my next doctor appointment I will be going on my third trimester. I will also have the glucose testing done. ANY TIPS AND TRICKS ON HOW TO PASS IT THE FIRST TIME AROUND. With the last three pregnancies I have failed the one hour test each time:( and have had to go back for the three hour test- and those are awful.
