27 weeks and 1 day

Last week was one of those weeks where I barely had any energy. It was difficult to get myself to do anything. I'm praying this week I will have more energy to get things done around my house.

Saturday afternoon Nathan said, "I had the most wonderful dream last night." I asked him what it was about and he said he dreamed that our son was born. He said he got to hold and kiss on him. He said he was perfect. I love those moments when he shares things like that with me. Definitely melts my heart.

The night before he had his arm around my belly as we were going to sleep. He was able to feel the baby moving a little bit. As he fell asleep the baby started kicking his arm. It was so strong that I could feel his arm jump. I was going to say something about it to him but he was sound asleep. When I told him about that the next day after he shared the dream with me, he said that's probably why he dreamed that. He said when he woke up his arm was in the same place.

Lately I've been told that I look like I've lost weight in my face and chest area. Some have actually used the word "skinny". Which is the best thing I could ever hear. lol I've never been told I look "skinny" before. That's a new one. This coming Saturday I'll be 7 months along. I still don't look near as big as most at this stage in my pregnancy. In some ways that's a good thing. I do feel like it is noticeable that I am pregnant.

On Saturday Nathan finally went with me to Babies 'R' Us. It was a lot of fun getting to add stuff together to our registry. I still need to go add more things. It meant a lot to have him with me to share that experience together. I told him that's the only time he has to go to add stuff to our registry. He hasn't been looking forward to going, but later that day he admitted that he did enjoy some of it. I knew he did, because he wanted to scan things. He picked up a few items and was like oh we need this. Then I was looking at blankets and he would say stuff like "oh how about that one because it has animals on it?" It was so cute. I loved every minute of it.

On Wednesday I go for my glucose test. I'm not looking forward to that at all. I have to make sure tomorrow that I don't eat hardly anything with sugar in it. That may prove to be difficult. I'll be updating then about how everything goes.


  1. Thanks for the recipe sites =)

    That's so cute about Nathan's dream.

  2. :-) I'm glad you two enjoyed the Babies R Us trip. I knew he'd get into it eventually.

    Looking forward to seeing you in October !

  3. You look great, Adrian! You're definitely looking more and more pregnant. I'm so glad you're enjoying your time with your little one inside of you. :)

    I hope that glucose test goes well! Is it normal to have a glucose test, or is the doctor taking an extra precaution?

  4. I love when Nathan has these little dreams...SO sweet. Anyway I did notice something on your registries. You have a stroller on two different ones, and a diaper I guess my thing was, what if two people get you both...I was just wondering. I noticed because Franklin and I were trying to pick something out for you....anyway goodluck Wed. Let me know how it goes :)

  5. such a blessing to have your husband go through this with you and to be excited and caring and even shop with you. God is so good...praying for you about the glucose testing. Ps - you do look pregnant and the joy of it is evident!

  6. You look beautiful and I loved the video of the baby kicking!

  7. That is so sweet about Nathan's dream! :) Mike loved looking at baby stuff too. You do look great! You look much better than I did!!

    The glucose test won't be bad!
