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.  


  1. Glad to hear the contractions stopped. We are excited to see this little one too, but not too soon. :) We are praying for a healthy pregnancy and baby.
    Oooh, I love the spanish language. I'd love for my kids to learn Spanish, but I'm feeling slightly compelled to teach them some french, given that it is our second official language. :)

    Hope you are enjoying your visit with your company.... but please, send them home already, would you? :)

  2. Thanks for the updates. So glad the baby is doing well and we'd love to see her, too, but not too early. I'm glad the contractions stopped, too. So-so thankful that hubby is doing so well with his throat condition. That is such a blessing and an answer to prayer.

    Glad the kids are doing well in school and sounds like they are really doing great learning Spanish.

    Love you all
