28 weeks

So today I am 28 weeks pregnant! The baby is apparently the size of an eggplant (according to several baby websites that track this sort of thing). I had a doctor's appointment on Friday, where I unfortunately failed the 1-hour glucose test, so therefore have to proceed with the 3-hour test to determine if I have gestational diabetes. Fingers-crossed, I won't, since I was barely above the limit on the test from Friday. Everything else seems to be progressing nicely.

Finally feel like I'm "pregnant enough" that people can at least tell that I am in fact pregnant, although sometimes I wonder. I guess folks are still nervous about the "what if she's not". They always seem relieved when I bring up in casual conversation that we are in fact expecting.

Anyway, it's been a great weekend, as I finally got some much-needed filing done, and we've managed to clear out about 90% of the stuff that doesn't belong in the nursery (ie. boxes of junk/stuff/keepsakes that we can't seem to get rid of), and rearranged furniture.

A good friend of mine got married last night, and it was A-W-E-S-O-M-E. I love weddings, and this was a great one! Here is a photo of Brian and I inside the reception at Hibernian Hall in downtown Charleston.

Not the greatest photo, since it was taken with a phone, but at least gives you an idea! I was so sore today from all the dancing last night. It was quite the party, and there were plenty of great friends there to share in the fun!

Then today, I went to a Photography Workshop in North Charleston! It was a 4-hour course on digital photography, and I at least feel like I have a little bit of a better grasp on how to use the camera. It will definitely take practice, but I'm excited to know some tips that will at least help me get started before the baby comes! Here are a few practice shots that I took of small vignettes in the nursery. You'll notice that we've hung some new artwork as well!

This first piece is from an artist out of Malaysia that I found on Etsy. It's called Owl Wow Awww, from ilovedoodle. I love that it shares our love of both owls and bikes!


The next vignette shows a tandem bicycle print that we already had, which is also from Etsy, and is an artist who is actually local (PerlaAnne's print called we are so good together)! The other is an owl print that my Aunt Carol framed for the baby shower a few weeks ago, along with the bicycle.

All in all, a fun weekend. Sorry to see it come to an end!
