Belly picture time!

I love how every time I take a picture of my belly, I think it's huge.

Right up until I see the next picture of my belly.

I lost my feet this week. I can bend over and find them, but when I'm standing up straight, they don't appear at all. Maybe if I had bigger feet, I'd get a glimpse of nicely-pedicured toes. But they're not that big, so they're hidden now.

Yellow is also very nicely hanging out head-down already, so I get to see/feel a butt shifting around just above my belly button pretty much all the time. And, like his/her sibling, Yellow seems to have a propensity for getting hiccups, so I've been feeling those every few days already, too.

In other pregnancy news, I failed my 1-hr glucose test this week (didn't eat before the test... I don't recommend that). But, because my midwife is awesome, and because I REALLY didn't want to do the 3-hr test (there is nothing natural or good for you about sugar-shocking your system like that!), I get to just do some standard blood sugar testing this weekend with a regular ol' glucose meter at home. As long as those numbers are fine, then I'm good to go. I'm pretty sure I'll be fine, but I'm happy to get to test this way instead of the sugar-shock method. This is just one more reason why I'm SO very happy I found my midwife and didn't settle for the less-than-ideal care I felt like I would've gotten from the OB I initially saw. It's good to be a person and not just another pregnant lady rotating out of the exam room every 5 minutes.

Anywho, onto the good stuff....
