25 & 1

Yesterday was a VERY eventful day so I didn't get a chance to write my weekly pregnancy post:
Here's how it went

9:30AM: I'm drinking my "fruit punch" for my glucose test and it's not so bad.
10:00AM: We arrived at Hay's Women's Health for my appointment and received a call from Mark Wittenburg and my friend Beth (his wife) telling us that she has been having contractions every 10 minutes since 6PM the night before and her doctor told her to come on in.
10:30AM: The nurse calls me to the room and takes my blood for the test. Not fun
11:00AM We happily leave the appointment after hearing a great sounding baby heart beat, having a few questions answered, getting a names of local pediatrician, and setting my next appointment (the last monthly appointment) for November 10th.
11:15AM: Text from Mark that says "Beth is 5cm and the baby will be here today"
11:15-11:30AM pure excitement in our car! That baby isn't due until November 12th! My last blog post was about this! We pray for baby's health and for Beth's and get home to change and head to the hospital.
11:30AM: We arrive home to a big box of KENNEDY'S BEDDING on our porch :) :) Oh I wish that crib were here! It is so pretty and I can't wait to set up her room!
12:00PM: Hospital, wait, Beth decided on epidural, wait, more waiting..........
6:06PM: ..........

Nathan Robert Wittenburg is here!! He's healthy and doing great and so is momma! 5.7 pounds and 18.5 inches long. All of the nurses in the nursery are ohhing and ahhing over him and of course we are too!!
Proud mom and dad

On Saturday Beth and I were talking about how she probably won't be at my first baby shower on November 13th because of Nathan's due date. Oh how we were wrong. Thank you Lord for reminding me that its Your time not ours!! He is precious.

So with that:

How your baby's growing

Head to heels, your baby now measures about 13 1/2 inches. Her weight — a pound and a half — isn't much more than an average rutabaga, but she's beginning to exchange her long, lean look for some baby fat. As she does, her wrinkled skin will begin to smooth out and she'll start to look more and more like a newborn. She's also growing more hair — and if you could see it, you'd now be able to discern its color and texture.

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 25 Weeks & 1 day
Size of baby: Baby K is the size of a Rutabaga???
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Gained 22 lbs
Maternity Clothes: Jeans ordered online should be here any day now. I'll model them for you
Gender: Girl
Movement: getting kicked several times a day :)
Sleep: Had a HORRIBLE nights sleep Monday night but last night was better
What I miss: sprinting ;) I can't wait to train for a race or two
Cravings: Milk, Fruit
Best Moment this week: Her bedding arriving. Purchasing maternity jeans (can you see how much I miss my jeans ;), Nathan Robert being born!!!!! Her first friend is already here and waiting for her!
