The good, The bad, and the Beautiful

The good - I'm no longer sick at all. I feel pretty good most of the time and have even felt the baby move a little here and there. I am getting an u/s to see the baby again and find out the sex for sure next week.
The bad - I failed my 1 hour gtt by 2 points. Last year the cut off was 140. This year they changed it to 135 "to catch more borderline cases". I scored 137 and the computer didn't flag it since it was still set to 140 as the cut off. I spent 2 weeks thinking I passed it only to go in and have the MW tell me I had to go have the 3 hour test done because of those 2 measly points. I'm trying hard not to dread the 3 hour test and thinking of it as a way to get lots of knitting done. I would like to have Christmas gifts done by my b'day (late Sept) so this could be a productive morning even if it involves fasting for a long time and 3 blood draws.
The Beautiful - This is what Curtis now does when you ask him to smile for the camera (he had just come in from playing with the hose so that's why he's wet). He's super cute as always and keeps me on my toes. We are in the two's for sure but even with the stuggles over independence, we still have some great times and I love nothing more than watching him learn and grow more and more each day.

Smoke in our eyes

Not a great pic but....Curtis was at his cousin's b'day party and she is very girly. He ended up enjoying the feathered boa and fancy pink microphone a lot. MIL said he looked like a young Elton John!

My throat is dry and I'm finding it hard to breathe. We've been stuck inside for two days because of the smoke. There are something like 80k acres of forest on fire in GA and FL right now and the subtropical storm is blowing the smoke on us. It's so gross feeling and Curtis and I hate being couped up indoors.

check out my big guy

So we're not 100% sure since it's so early but there is a good chance my hunch was wrong and this one's a boy. We'll be sure at the next ultrasound at 20 weeks but I'll be surprised if it's not a boy because what I saw looked very boy to me and the tech agreed.

He's measuring big by a full week and they may move my due date up. I guess I make big babies, but I have no idea why since Curtis is small now and I've never been big. Otherwise the tech thought it all looked fine and we'll just wait until the MW confirms everything on the 24th.

Life is great!
PS - No diabetes so far...fingers crossed it stays that way.
