Solidly into week 24 of this pregnancy thing. Thought I would give y'all an update about how I'm feeling and what I've been working on. Our 24 week appointment was yesterday and lasted about 5minutes. Heartbeat was strong, I'm not having an complications, so we were in and out. Next about 28 weeks=Glucose Test.... keep me in your prayers because it seems everyone gets Gestational Diabetes these days!
2013 Goal Update:
*Bible Reading: Still going strong! Made it through 1-2 Chronicles and Romans! Now onto Ezra, Nehemiah and Esther :-)
*1200 Monthly Fitness Minutes: YES!! Every Month and usually over that!!! So happy that even pregnant I can continue my healthy life goals!
*Bucket List.... not doing so hot here...but having a baby is kind of a big one on my bucket list so that counts right?
*Resolving to do one of the following before the end of August: Hike Taum Sauk Mt, line dance, or run a 5k...might be pushing it on the 5k thing lol
