I am 27weeks and 6days...

Iron bed frame from Ikea.

Crib and changing table from Baby's R US.

Today I had my glucose screening test where I was given only a orange drink that taste like Gatorade after fasting for 12hours and had to wait another hour to have my draw blood. The doctor said everything looks good! Weight gain on tract (2lbs a week), blood pressure good and my tummy measurement right on tract. Baby is head down with arms and legs facing the left. I was thinking the baby was head up all this time so all this kicking was really head butting... And something when I lay on my left side and night I get the funniest tickles; maybe that's the baby's tiny punches...lol.

This weekend was so exciting we purchased a crib, changing table and bed for big sis. We were at work assembling furniture and decorating the entire weekend. So happy that their room is coming together. Unpacking was put on hold just temporary; I'm so ready throw everything away and start new.

Back tracking to what y'all miss during our wedding planning, here's a link to our engagement slide show. I get so touched everytime I see it.

I just got news that Leo's lil cousin baby boy was born pre-term today. The mom was due late January so that made her about 22-24 weeks. I'm so afraid for them a baby born so early will have many health issues. My prays go out to Jamal Jr. and to his parents. Lord I call on you in their time of need.

I confess...

I love this shared nursery space idea from HGTV.com

It's been 5months since my last entry and so much has happened. During the last 3months of our wedding planning we discovered we were expecting! Five months in short: pregnancy, wedding, Cancun, and moving. So bear with me dear bloggies pictures and updates soon to come...

Retro photo of my love and I

We have been in search of a new photographer...When we first got engaged that was the first vendor we decided on. We choose Bella pictures because we thought It was the safest and most reliable photography company. How Bella works: You meet with a your assigned Photography consultant for the first meeting, they give you the impression that all their photographers are top quality and trained in wedding photography, and they have many available products such as wedding albums for easy purchase. Just $50 buck reserves your date! Well its 10months later and 3months on Sunday away from our day. We finally get a photographer that they choose based off of how well you described your style to your photography consultant and we were not happy. Blogging this process now, makes me feel like how did we see this as a good fit for us? After we saw our first choice we panicked and went into search mode. My wedding coordinator says the most people don't find there until 2months before their wedding but we really wanted this out of the way!!! So here we are searching for a new photographer that better fits our style. And I am excited to say that we may have a winner!!!
