29 Weeks!

This week past week was such an exciting week for us!  First off I had my glucose test checking for gestational diabetes and if I failed I would have gotten a call yesterday...no call!  Thursday led to my 3-4/D ultrasound which I took my Mom along with me.  It was a little bit different experience being further along.  Last time I had very little problem laying on my back for an hour, this time I immediately got a little nauseas and started sweating.  I had to turn to my side a few times because I just couldn't stand it on my back.  Here is a short video they took of the baby:

It was really a neat experience to get to see baby again!  This leads me to the weekend, our "Baby Moon"!!!  We went up to the "thumb" of Wisconsin Door County and stayed the weekend.  We had so much fun just seeing the sights and spending time together.  Here are a few photos:
Look out at Ellison Bluff

Al Johnsons Swedish Restaurant - famous for the goats on the rooftop!  See him up there?

Peanut Butter Oreo & Raspberry Shortcake - never a shortage of desserts

Door County is really well known for its wineries which we weren't able to partake in, but I did schedule a Haunted Trolley Tour which was really fun to go around and see some historic places and hear stories from its early history. 
 

 We finished our trip with one of our favorite Sunday rituals getting breakfast.  We went to a place called Mel's Diner in Sturgeon Bay which is the town we stayed.  I found the restaurant in the Door County Dining Guide!  It didn't disappoint. 
It was a pretty short weekend, but we were both happy to get home and pick up Lady who stayed at my Mom & Dad's while we were gone.  We stayed there to eat lunch and watch the Packer Game and then finally made our way home...but it doesn't end there.  (I told you this week was exciting.)  As soon as we got back home I noticed I had a voicemail from my Mom telling me Dick had forgotten his wallet and phone.  He had planned on going out deer hunting near our house on some public land, but decided to head back to my parents and just hunt on their land.  After sitting out for 45 minutes (in my stand by the way) he sent me a picture text that he got a doe!!  So concludes our adventure for the week.  This weekend we have a big party/family reunion back out at my parents house.  I can't wait!!! 
 
The weather is cooling off and we are getting into sweater season!  Here is this weeks bump:

The bump is lookin' good! You're in the home stretch. Do you feel ready? What are you most anxious about? Looks like your Babymoon was a great trip away. :) Loved the pictures!

Thank you both! DanL I had this epiphany after making a big decision on a child care provider that I am feeling much more prepared. I think once I have my shower and know what else we need I will really feel as ready as possible!
