Pregnancy Update: Weeks 24-26

Wow - time flies! It's been a whole month since I posted a pregnancy update!  It's been a very busy month for us.  I was out in Austin a couple weeks ago for ACL and we traveled to upstate NY to visit family last weekend.  It was all very fun, but I think our travel days are over until this baby gets here.  Only 3 more months to go!  Here is a look at the last month.

At 24 weeks, we had to visit a high-risk doctor.  We had to do another ultrasound 2 weeks after the gender one to get clearer pictures of some of her organs for the doctor.  For some reason they were measuring her as having a drop in weight from the 20th percentile to the 11th.  The doctor thought it was probably a bad measurement, possibly due to the baby's position, but wanted to make sure.  Since I was feeling her moving around a lot and my belly was measuring where it should, I wasn't too worried.  Turns out, the baby is completely fine.  She was actually measuring in the 40th percentile for weight.  So while I'm still with my regular OB, now I have to go to the high-risk doctor for any ultrasounds, which is kind of annoying, but I'm happy to make sure the baby is ok.  Here are a couple ultrasound pictures.  Check out that cute profile!

I was unaware that I was pregnant back in April when I bought my ACL ticket.  I still wanted to go, as my last "crazy" weekend before the baby.  I went with my best friend Melissa and her husband (my hubby is not a fan of music festivals, haha).  We were sure to get some fun bump pics, like the one above, which was in front of some artwork they had there, and the one below.   If you follow me on Instagram, you've seen the next 2 pictures. :)

I saw that they were selling these cute onesies and had a matching adult shirt at ACL.  I couldn't resist getting a little memento from baby girl's first music festival.

Last week, at 26 weeks, we were in NY.  It was such a fun trip and I'm sad I couldn't stay longer.  I loved seeing my family and I even got to see some friends from high school.  Also, the fall foliage was gorgeous!  I was looking forward to cooler weather, but it ended up being a bit colder than we expected!  The average temps were 45-50 each day.  It was a refreshing change from the Texas heat though. :)  

This week I hit 27 weeks, aka 6 months.  I have the dreaded glucose test today at my doctor appointment.  I'll have an update and bump picture up next week!
