PREGNANCY UPDATES !

Some of you know that I scored a little high on the 1 hour glucose tolerance test. I have been checking my blood every two weeks...and so far so good...everything is within normal. I have to get another test most likely Saturday...I anticipate the same. I doubt I will make it for another....(I hope I wont.)
So far into this pregnancy I have gained 10 1/2 pounds. This does not sound like much...but be assured my babies are large and healthy...and I seem to have plenty of "stores" for myself. :) This pregnancy I have been carrying much like I did Isaac...right out in front. In fact the other day I was in a school bathroom, and happened to catch myself in the mirror at "just the right angle", and you could not even tell I was prego --HA. Perhaps I will be able to borrow my Mother in laws camera and get some belly shots...as I really dont have very many.
Other stuff...blood pressure is good...no protien in my urine...so far so good. The baby is head down. I asked the Doc. what he wanted me to do when I knew I was in labor...do you want me to stay at home a while, or just come right in...he said absolutely NO laboring at home for you. I tend to go very quickly, so I am glad that he thinks so too.
Some things that I need to get done before Elijah comes: Clean, Clean,Clean. Get baby clothes to Corys Mom for washing. Buy going home outfit for Elijah. Pack a suitcase for myself. Buy gifts for the other kiddos from Eli. And a HOST of other things. Pray for a surge of Energy for me, and that I wont be too uncomfortable. Thanks.

You are almost there!!!!! I can't wait to hear about your baby shower! I am sure that will be great fun-and it always helps to get mama's over the 'hump'.

I'm glad your sugar testing seems to be good for now- I hope it stays that way!

Enjoy getting a going home outfit for Elijah- that was one of my favorite things to do, get Samuel's going home outfit and blanket ready :)

It was good to talk with you the other day! :) Take care and get LOTS of rest!!!!

We will be praying for energy for you here! I know too well the feeling, although, like I said at church the other day, I am at the other end of the spectrum-just starting out tiredness! It won't be long. It is also good that Eli's head is down and where it should be! Take care and see you Sunday, Lord willing. :)
