29 weeks!

If you are trying to do the math on my post title you will notice that I skipped ahead a week, the reason for this is because Olivia's due date was changed to Sept. 18th. I know it only changed by a week, I feel like it is getting super close!! On top of them changing her due date to the 18th, we also discussed the possibility of me being induced a week to two weeks early which then moves her due date to the beginning of Sept!!! Eeek that is coming quick!

The reason they are talking about inducing early is because my blood pressure has been borderline prehypertension and they have been watching it, last week it was 123/81 which is good they just want it lower for pregnant women. In the past it has been anywhere from 120/80 - 135/85 which is considered prehypertension so I risk getting preeclampsia. They are going to keep monitoring me and we will see how it goes from here :). At my Dr. apt last week I took a glucose test and so far I haven't heard back from the Dr. so I am assuming all is well there, YAY no gestational diabetes! 

Since I am slowly starting to gain some weight, I am starting to fill out and actually look like I am pregnant! Jared took my first baby bump picture for me on Saturday...

When I went to the Dr. last week she scheduled a sonogram the day after my apt so we could make sure Olivia was growing properly and everything was well on the inside. My mother in law came with me to my sono so the sonographer was trying to get a good picture of Olivia for her. Olivia wasn't cooperating, she was facing my back and she had her arm blocking her face. The sonographer turned on the 3D ultra sound and between me pushing on her and the sonographer getting the angle just right we got her to move enough to see part of her pretty face! <3 So in love already!!!

Looking forward to: working on Olivia's bedding and baby showers at the end of the month! :)

I have been working on knitting a blanket for Olivia (will post pictures of that once I have more done), during my down time from that I have sewn a couple of things for her.

I made a taggie blanket out of A&M material, I have lots more A&M material so you will see a few more projects for her out of this material :).

I also made her a bib from an old t-shirt that doesn't fit me anymore, I have a ton of shirts that I will be converting to bibs in the next few weeks!

In other news, I have laid out a design plan for Olivia's bedding and started picking up fabric so Mom and I should be starting on this project soon! :)
