Not Me! Monday

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

I did not skip lunch on Friday so that I would have time to get my nails done instead. A pregnant woman would NEVER choose a French Manicure over French Fries. Not me at least!

I totally did not forget to bring the beautifully wrapped gift to the wedding we'd been planning on going to for over a month now! And I definitely do not have a Type A personality that would allow me to be anxious about forgetting this present and keep me off the dance floor for a majority of the night. Not me!

It most certainly did not help that I thought I could fit my 6+ month pregnant body into an ill-fitting non-maternity dress. I don't think like that at all, not me! And since I would never think about squeezing myself into this non-maternity dress, I would definitely not have the pictures to prove it:

I would never think to ask Justin to cut me out of the dress at the end of the night because the zipper broke, and I didn't have the patience to wait for him to figure out how else to get me out of the extremely uncomfortable, non-maternity dress. I wouldn't just buy a dress to wear for one, single, solitary occasion . . . totally NOT ME!

Finally, I did not make Justin drive all the way to the mall yesterday, just a half-hour before closing, so that I could satisfy my craving for pretzel sticks. Those things are pure, buttery goodness . . . er, I mean evil! And I don't crave anything that is the least bit unhealthy, not me!

26 Weeks = New Pics and New 'Do!

I'm a little over a week late on this, but I was just waiting to have new pictures taken so I could post everything at once. Anyway, our latest maternal fetal appointment went really well. I wish the tech got some better pictures, but I'll share what I have anyway. Also, the current stats are:

1. My BP was 155/82 (starting to creep up steadily, but I was expecting that as I head into the 3rd trimester here . . . will probably be upping the meds soon) 138/100 at the OB's office less than a week later (it's a little all over the place, but they'll keep watching it closely)

2. Baby's HR was 156 (strong and steady!)

3. Baby weighed 1.5 lbs (35th percentile = on the small end of normal)

4. Baby's foot measured 2 cm (just under an inch)

5. They were able to look at the heart more closely again this time and were able to see everything that they couldn't see before. The doctor said "the heart is perfect", so yay! As always, a big THANK YOU to everyone who is continuing to pray for us and this baby.

See, It Snows in Georgia!

Okay, so it is starting to melt already, but we did manage to go out this afternoon and snap a few shots:
