Snoogle Me To Sleep

This morning Chris and I had another doctor's appointment. We heard Preslie's little heartbeat, and the second the Doppler was on my stomach she starting kicking it. It was so crazy to hear the little kicks through the Doppler. The doctor said it was good that she was so active. I also got my stomach measured for the first time. 28 inches....which puts me in the 98th percentile. Meaning this baby is going to be a big one....YIKES!! I go in again in 3 weeks for the Glucose test, which I hope goes well. I am not a huge sugar person, so it'll be interesting to have to drink the liquid. :)


Lately I have been having the worst rib/side pains when I have been sleeping, so Chris and I invested in a Snoogle pillow. Seriously the greatest thing invented. It doesn't take up too much room, and you sleep so well on it. There are over a dozen different positions you can use with it also. I highly recommend it to all the preggies if you are struggling with getting comfortable. I love it!

The Glucose test really isn't that bad. When I went in I thought I was going to have to drink this huge 32 oz Big Gulp of the stuff, but it was a pretty small cup. I wouldn't worry too much about it!

I love the glucose test :) Tastes like orange soda, it's really not that bad.

I so WISH I had one of those pillows when I was preggers! They are awesome!

For me the glucose drink wasn't bad to drink either but I don't know what happened! Afterwards while I was waiting the affects of the drink took over and I almost passed out in the waiting area. They had to wheel chair me into a room with a bed and lay down. It was pretty crazy. I had problems sleeping too when it got later in the pregnancy but I never got one of those pillows, I'll have to this time if there are problems again. Glad to hear she is so active, isn't that fun!? (until you need to sleep that is:).

Oh ya- you gotta have a pillow. I had a body pillow. I basically worked the same.

Also, the drink thingy is no biggy. It tastes good.

Cool pillow, it looks really comfy!! Does Chris hate it because it takes over the bed and his cute wife? Anyways, the glucose test was funny for me both times because it was like drinking orange soda that makes the baby go nuts, or at least my babies went crazy with sugar highs!!
