SO Excited!!!

So, after going through about a week of strong nerves and anxiety, I am finally getting super excited! Don't get me wrong, I was excited before, but now I am truly looking forward to EVERYTHING this baby will bring. I keep having these crazy dreams of walking in the park with Brandon and our baby and I think of all the weekends we will get to share together. I can't wait to go on walks together, go to the park, go on family vacations, the whole shabang. I am even excited about the challenges that I know will be here soon. I am so blessed to have such awesome family members who know what they are doing. (And who have let me practice on their sweet children all these years.)
I am starting to train Brandon on how to do "baby" things. We read all about life with a baby and he is so ecstatic and can not wait to be a "hands-on" daddy.
Also, my belly is finally growing! I think strangers can finally tell I am really pregnant and not just fat. At 22 weeks today, I bought my first pair of maternity jeans! They are so awesome and I can't wait to wear them. They are called Maternity LA. I bought them at Pea in a Pod. On a not so cool note, my belly button is beginning to pop out and is getting pretty ugly. haha
Last night, Brandon felt the baby kick so hard that he pulled his hand back and screamed! We were laughing so hard we were crying. That thing sure is kicking ALL the time now.
On Feb. 22nd, we have a doctor's appt. to have the diabetes and glucose testing done. I am totally NOT looking forward to that. Keep us in your prayers please.
All in all, this is just to say how amazingly blessed I feel to be having a baby! I just want to know if it is a BOY or a GIRL!!!!!

so glad you're getting MORE excited! i'm so happy for you. carrying a child and becoming a mom are truly an amazing experience and it'll be nice to welcome you to the club really soon! we're also very eager to find out if we're having a niece or nephew!

the glucose test is usually no big deal. you drink a bottle of stuff that tastes like a really sugary sunkist, get your blood drawn, and that's it. most likely the result will be normal! just don't have a sweet breakfast that morning, sometimes that throws it off.
