I can't believe I'm already 30 weeks. The time is just flying by. I am now into the every other week doctor appointments. And the weather is getting warmer so we're doing more stuff so I'm sure the next 10 weeks will go by even faster.
I had my glucose test almost 2 weeks ago, and I passed that! I was super nervous about not passing because since Mason was so big we all thought for sure I had gestational diabetes but it just wasn't picked up on the test with him.
As of my appointment last night I have gained 20 pounds so far. Baby's heartbeat was 140 bpm and everything was looking good. This baby is super active, especially at bed time.
We still don't know gender, but the kids are having fun guessing and coming up with names. Mason is pretty set on naming the baby Minecraft. I have a feeling he's going to be upset when we don't pick that.
I got this recipe from a friend back in high school so it's been around for a long time. She used to make it for all our cheerleading holiday parties. Her family called them Goobers, but I see them mostly known as peanut butter balls or buckeyes. Whatever you call them, they are good.
1 cup confectioners sugar
1 1/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 package chocolate chips
1 Tbsp vegetable shortening
In a small bowl, combine the confectioners sugar and cracker crumbs.
In a saucepan, heat butter and peanut butter on low heat until it's melted.
Let your dog lick the peanut butter spoon and laugh!
Mix the sugar/crumb mix with the butter/peanut butter mix until mixed well. Roll into small balls and place on wax paper.
In a small sauce pan, heat the chocolate chips and vegetable shortening on low heat until melted. Making sure you don't burn the chocolate. Once melted dip your balls into the chocolate until coated and return to wax paper. Let cool in the refrigerator covered in wax paper for about an hour.
Store in a container with a lid so they don't dry out.
