Only 43 days left!

Well lately we have been feeling our little girl move/kick so much more these days. It's so exciting. We have been going for fetal monitoring weekly and will continue to do so until she is born. She has been a little stubborn in these appointments. She defienetly has a mind of her own. :) Next week we get an ultrasound to see how big she is getting.
I'm now on 20 units of insulin at bedtime, which seems to be working. I'm trying hard to keep my blood sugar in check, which seems to be working. I found out at my last doctors appointment that I have actually only gained 6 POUNDS this entire pregnancy! Which seems to be ok, and obviously most of that is the baby. I seem to have lost weight like every other appointment, which is crazy. My doctor is not concerned about the lack of weight gain, since I could stand to lose weight.
I will be 34 weeks tomorrow! I have only 43 days left! I can't believe how close we are getting to meeting our baby girl! We can't wait!
This weekend is my baby shower. I'm so excited for it! :) I don't know much of whats going on at it, since my mom won't tell me, but I know its going to be fun! Anywho, thats what's been going on. I will post pictures of it afterwards.

32 Weeks & Valentines Day

So I'm 32 weeks today! I can't believe it! Dave and I have been getting so excited. We can't wait to meet her. We wonder who shes going to take after. Is she going to have darker skin with brown hair, or fair skin with blonde or strawberry blonde hair! We go into her room, a.k.a. the nursrey, everyday and look at what weve done to it and still plan on doing to it.
Well I now have to go in every week for fetal monitoring, and I am on Insulin overnight. I have to give myself a shot in my stomach around 10:30 everynight. It kinda sucks, but what can you do? The last time they checked, her weight was 3 pnds, 8 oz. Which is in the 53rd percintile. So thats good, hopefully wih the insulin and diet i'm on she wont get to large to deliver vaginally. We took a tour of the hospital last saturday where I will be giving birth to her. It just made me even more excited. All the rooms I will be in are private, so i'm super happy about that. We finally go our tax return back so we plan on buying me the things I will need in the hospital, and after we bring baby home!
Oh yeah yesterday was Valentines day. I usually hate this day, becuase of all the hype it gets. But yesterday was amazing. So Dave and I went out last saurday celebrating this holiday since we knew he had to work Tuesday, which was fine, he baught me my favorite flower, pink roses and i got him loads of candy. It was fine. So yesterday, when he is leaving i'm feeling particularly down, (stupid pregnancy hormones) and I now know he could obviously tell. So I decide tot take a nap, and like an hour later i get a text from him asking me out for dinner. I was like "what?" and then I said "no", because then he would be taking no pay for the day, and he said "you really going to say no?" I said "well no, i guess not, yeah i'll go, but i'm very confused, where are you?" Dave says "just go get ready, i'm on my way home." At this point im confused and super excited! So he gets home and says we need to go. Then we show up at the movies and he buys tickets to The Vow, which I have been wanting to see since he came out recently! I assumed I would just have to rent it on red box, because he doesn't like movies like that. Anyway, then we went to dinner at Chili's, and it was a really relaxing night. He is so sweet! He never surprises me and so I was very happy that he did. It was a nice evening and I just know that i'm truly blessed with an amazing husband, who I know is going to be a wonderful father!
