Long time no see!

So the baby ticker says we only have 96 days to go - pretty amazing, huh? We had a checkup yesterday and the doctor says my 'fundal height' (fancy words for 'top of uterus') is measuring 28cm (which means that my belly sticks out that far). The fundal height measurement usually corresponds pretty closely with how far along you are (ie: 28cm = 28 weeks) However, we're only 26 weeks along, so she's measuring 2 weeks big! Of course, those numbers really mean nothing - the doc could have been stretching the measuring tape, or I could have had a big breakfast that morning, or I could have had a little extra belly padding to begin with (me??). But, its fun to speculate about a little overachiever! We listened to her heartbeat again - galloping along loud and strong. And of course she's still kicking and punching her way through the world - she's now discovered the most fun thing to do is to jam her foot up in between my ribs and just wedge it there for a few minutes. Now THAT's not the most fun way to wake up in the morning, let me assure you - it definitely takes your breath away (and hurts like heck)! I have to go in tomorrow for the superfun glucose tolerance test - drink some horrid crappy 'juice' drink, wait an hour, get a blood sugar test. I'm sure it will go fine. Next appointment is November 1st, and then we start going every two weeks! I guess I really need to pick up the pace on buying all the baby junk - I am just not motivated to go look at cribs and changing tables at all! Maybe I'll do it this weekend. I did update her registries though - and - just search for my full name and you'll see all the wonderful junk we need :) Okay, I think I've rambled on enough!
