July Photo Challenge - Bottle


Here is my "bottle" picture...Belikin beer in Belize. :) This was taken outside on the patio near our favorite room at the Sunbreeze Hotel. While we were there in May we bought a 6 pack to bring home so I can have my Belikin in September!!




A quick pregnancy update....(skip if it's easier for you)



I had a check-up on Friday afternoon...all went well. Dr. W is happy with how things are going; especially, my weight. Overall I am up only about 1-2 pounds from where I started. She said after giving birth I should be down about 25 pounds. I was shocked to hear that. J sent some text messages to Dr. A after our appointment to update him and he was also very happy with our progress. We are going to go visit him after our next appointment. It will be great to see him!

I asked about another ultrasound and Dr. W said normally she would not do one but Cinco is measuring about a week ahead so she is ordering one more. Phew! I really wanted to get to see him one more time. It was so odd to go from weekly u/s with Dr. A to "an needed" u/s with Dr. W. I am not surprised that Cinco is measuring big...my niece and nephews were each over 9lbs at birth, so I am expecting a 9+ lb baby!

I had the pleasure of going through my first glucose tolerance test on Friday. It was not quite as bad as I had expected. The glucola really reminded me of the juice we got as kids in the little plastic jugs with the foil tops. (Yes, I may have just dated myself and shown my age just a bit...oops!) I am still waiting to hear back regarding the results. The lab tech told me it can take 24-48 hours and no news is good news. Fingers crossed I passed!!

  6. I love the bottle photo. I have one from Mexico of a really old beer bottle sitting on a fence, overlooking the bay. Love photos like that.

    Glad to hear your doctor is so pleased with everything!
