Picture update!

So, it's been a while and we have been running around super busy trying to get stuff done. Quick update on me and Autumn...I met with my dr. and nutritionist last week and they both gave me great reports! They said my glucose levels look great so I just have to keep up with my balanced diet and we should be good. Autumn is measuring great with a strong heartbeat! We will get to see her on Tuesday when I meet with my specialist at Mercy Hospital for special ultrasound to make sure everything is going well and she is healthy, so later in August we can have another ultrasound to check on her to see how big she is getting to determine how early they need to take her. Today we finally got the special project painted in her nursery and I am soooooooo... excited it turned out perfect!!! Here are a few pics of me at 31 weeks and sneak peek at the nursery....

We have just a couple things left to finish up the nursery...hang pics on the blank wall above changing table and find a small bookcase, and then we will be finished!!

We got to go to IKEA for the first time this weekend with some friends and had a great time! I couldn't believe we spent about 4 hours walking around in that store. I LOVE it!!! We went to see if we could find the last stuff for the nursery, and ended up finding a new bedroom suit for our guest bedroom! I love it b/c it is great quality and cheap in price! So the last project to do is redoing our guest room. The furniture that is in there now was my old white furniture that I got back in jr. high so it is about 15 years old. Once we get everything done in there I will post some pics.

That's all for now, I will hopefully post some pics we get of Autumn on Tuesday and have a good report from the specialist to share! Hope you all have a great week and look forward to the 4th of July weekend!!! By the way, I have a new niece or nephew being born on the 6th, so exciting days ahead!!!! Until next time...

Prego Update

It's a miracle....2 posts in one day!!  A quick update on my pregnancy...

I got my test results last week and I unfortunately do have diabetes.  I met with my OB-GYN today and will meet with my nutritionist on Wednesday morning.  I only gained 2 pounds this month (thank heavens!) and Autumn's heartbeat is nice and strong!  I will have to go in every two weeks for appts now to see how my levels are doing.  I will have one ultrasound soon with a specialist to see how she is doing and then will have one more before we deliver to check how big Autumn is getting and her positioning to see where we go from there.  I am now actually doing quite well with this new adjustment.  My dr. has a lot of background in dealing with diabetes and has put my mind at ease.  I just can't wait for Wednesday so I can have everything explained to me about what my diet should be.  I think so far I have done pretty good balancing out my meals/snacks during the day for right now knowing nothing!  That's all I know for right now, I will update later after my visit on Wednesday and will also update on our wonderful trip we just got back from and post pictures!  I will leave you with a belly pic of me I just took at 28 weeks.  Until next time...
