We had our check up for February, and everything is looking very good. They ran blood tests and glucose tests, and everything is appearing normal. My low iron was the only thing of concern, which in the grand scheme of things is really not a big deal. Nothing a few extra vitamins (and a big steak:) won't take care of. We have slowly, but surely, been putting together our nursery. It's been fun rearranging and setting up furniture in just the right spot (for that moment). Until the next day when it seems maybe a different arrangement would work better. Maybe it's just the fact that it is hard for a pregnant women to make up her mind:) Good thing Joe is a patience person. We now will start going to appointments every three weeks, since the time is getting closer. Hard to believe only 2 1/2 more months and our world will be blessed with such a special addition. It sure seems to have gone by fast.
Isabelle is a mover and shaker the last few weeks. She moves constantly. Sometimes I wonder if I will have anything left inside when she is all done with. She likes when daddy talks to her and seems to react everytime Joe touches my "belly". It's AMAZING the things the react to, even when they are in the womb. She also likes to roll around, and I think snuggle with my diaphragm because WOW is it hard to breathe at times. It's been fun getting to know and recognize her movements, as well as the frequent hiccups she gets. It's fun to be the mom already I can't imagine what it is going to be like having her here. We really can't wait!! Hope all is well with everyone. Take care until next time...
Joe, Jess, and Isabelle
"Isabelle" bump at 28 weeks!
