This year I really am 28

For some reason this past year I thought I was 28. If I really thought about it, I knew I was 27, but my automatic answer when people asked was always 28. Well, as it turns out, I just turned 28 today! When Matt brought out my cake he had the numbers 68 on there and said, "Happy birthday Grandma!" He always calls me grandma at my birthday since I'm 3 months older than him.

I had a doctor's appointment, a nice birthday song (in harmony) from my grandparents, and a nice and unusual 2 hour nap by Dean (so I got to lay down for a little while after I finished a couple things). I taught 3 piano lessons (Dean started melting down half way through so he ended up in with Matt for about 45 min.), and Matt picked up some cheesesteaks and fries for us for dinner. See, I've come a long way. I actually enjoy a good cheesesteak. A thick slab of steak, not so much. But a nicely shaved and cooked lean steak with some good chewy bread, melty cheese and onions is kind of nice once every other year...(I'd probably have picked Taco bell, for my "cheap" birthday meal but like I mentioned before, they tore it down.) My friend Erin is going to hang out here on Friday night so Matt and I can go to the Temple. Next Friday or Saturday I think we'll get a babysitter and actually go to a sit down restaurant and maybe a movie. Not that much of anything is out right now...





So at 23 1/2 weeks, I've gained 11 lbs. total (since my first visit at 10 wks. It's a little more if you go back to my still nursing and pre-pregnant weight.) which brings me to 142. My blood pressure was 104/60. Once again she said the baby is a super wiggly guy and it took her awhile to get a good heart reading since he wouldn't stay still. Dean was captivated by the doppler thing and I told him we were listening to the baby boy in my tummy. Later today he pointed to my belly and said, "boy" (his new word the last few days). It's getting harder and harder to take him with me to my appointments. He's just so busy and curious I have a hard time keeping him out of everything!

Happy Birthday! And any birthday with yummy cheesesteaks and a healthy baby heartbeat can't be a bad one, I say!

I had the same problem this year, I thought I was 28 the whole year before my 28th too. I honestly couldn't remember if I was going to be 28 or 29!! And I don't have prego brain. I guess that officially means we are getting older, age doesn't really matter and I don't even remember!! Well here's to the grandma..Happy Birthday!!

Glad you had a happy birthday and glad you are really 28 now.

I hope on my next pregnancy I don't gain 11 pounds in 2 weeks like I seemed to with Clara.

Not that you care, but the bank doesn't have to send an interest statement unless it's $10 or more... :)

Happy birthday Celia! (okay, belated birthday) Glad you had such a nice day! If you ever want to drop Dean off over here for any of your appointments, feel free. I totally understand, I cannot take Spencer to mine, he's WAY too wiggly and curious for a gyno office. :)
