29 Weeks

Here I am at 29 weeks exactly. I'm at +24 lbs which is a little higher than I would like, but after a week of crappy eating on vacation, I won't complain too much. My blood pressure is good and just got word that I passed my glucose test. Yay! My emotions get the better of me a lot this pregnancy, but I don't know if its all pregnancy related or if some of it is just me trying to work through a lot of emotional issues - either way, trying to hold it together some days has been rough. I just wish I was able to enjoy being pregnant...but alas, its just not meant to be. Trying to enjoy it as much as possible, all the little kicks and wiggles and special time with Beckett. Also, trying very hard to stay focused on eating healthy and walking as much as I can, although, I can't walk far anymore without the belly cramping. Still trying to keep from gaining that 50 lbs like I did last time ;) Beckett is extremely active, and according to the baby center emails I get, he's…

10. Describe your most embarrassing moment.

My REAL most embarrassing moment is not something I ever want my kids (or anyone else for that matter) to have to know about, soo...

I've had a lot of embarrassing moments in my life, but one that I can think of that still haunts me to this day, is the fact that I couldn't get a date for my Junior Prom. Sure my boyfriend dumped me two shorts months before Prom (everyone I knew had dates at that point), and sure I didn't know anyone outside of Girard High School that I could've gone with anyway, but the fact that I couldn't get a date stings my ego more than anything. To add insult to injury, the guy I was "talking-to" (that's what we used to call someone you like, who liked you but you weren't yet officially "going-out" - oh, the HS drama days) promised to ditch his date at the prom and just go with me instead BUT danced with me once and then left early with his date to go "change clothes&…

9. List 10 people who have influenced you and describe how.

1. My Grandma Kay - she was a huge influence over me growing up. I can think of so many of her great qualities that I try to live up to: Seeing God in all the little things He does for us, Loving others no matter their circumstance, and Cherish the past and those who were in it.
2. My mom & stepdad - What more influence could someone have over me than the people that raised me?! They taught me wrong from right, the importance of not putting my makeup on while driving, if you don't have the money for something right now - don't buy it, gave me the blessing of being raised in a small town, made me get a job when I was 16 (thank you), every holiday and childhood tradition are soooo important to maintain as a parent, I could go on forever. Thank you guys.
3. My dad - I was taught a lot of life lessons from my dad without him being around much. Good, bad or indifferent, he has influenced me a lot in my life. He wasn…
