Not only have I been behind in my blogging but I was seriously slacking with getting the kids birthday pictures done professionally!  We finally got our July birthday boy done and still have our Sept birthday boy yet to do....followed with our girl who is going to have a birthday in a couple weeks.  Ahhhh!!  Well, here are his pics and the first one is the one we bought.

28 week appointment

I had an ultrasound today to check if the placenta has moved up out of the way for baby to be born and it has!!  We thank the Lord for this answer to prayer.  Baby looked really good.  She is measuring exactly according to her due date and she looked healthy and very active.  She is approx. 3 lbs and 14 in long.  We are thankful for this good report today.
I've been recording my blood sugar at home and the doctor was very happy with the results.  I did experiment a little with some foods to see how it would affect my sugar levels and there are some things I do need to eat in moderation.  He would like me to continue monitoring but was very happy.
So it was a good day today!

Grandma and Grandpa visit

Had a nice but quick visit with Grandma and Grandpa over the weekend!  The kids loved it!

Thought I would update about pregnancy etc.  I had a doctors visit yesterday and had high blood pressure again.  I took in my record sheet which I have been recording my BP at home morning and night.  The numbers were great so the doctor is not concerned with my BP anymore.  He sees that it is high only at office visits (which I don't know why....oh well).  I need to start recording my blood sugar at home now to see if I am diabetic or not.  He was fine with me not doing the 3 hr glucose test.  Baby had a good heartbeat.  She is lying transverse (side to side) at the moment.  All my babies tend to flip back and forth, up and down until the last minute!  I go for an ultrasound in 2 weeks to see if my placenta has moved away from the cervix.  Praying it has so that I will not need a c-section!   I have been having some contractions.  The other day they were 10 mins apart for an hour.  I was getting a little worried but was glad when they finally stopped.  Don't want this little gal to come too early!!  Thirteen more weeks to go!  Other than that all looks well.....

The family is all doing great.  We were just talking about hubby's throat the other day.  It has been 20 months since his last surgery!!  (He was going every 8 months!!)  We are so very thankful the diet change seems to have done the trick.  God is so good.  All the kids are doing great.  We have started learning Spanish which has been interesting.  I think it will be a long time before we are fluent in the language!!!  Other than that, school is going well.
