31 weeks

I am 31 weeks along in my pregnancy today.  Wow, time sure flies when you have a preschooler to chase after and a homebased business to run.  I am so excited to meet baby Joshua!  I am hoping the Dr. will induce me a little bit early as he is still big.  I am now measuring three weeks ahead rather than four but that still can mean he is bigger.  The dr. will be doing an ultrasound in a month so we shall get a better idea then.  In the mean time, I am hanging in there.  I have a new diet since being diagnosed with gestational diabetes and I have been doing really good with it, surprisingly.  I actually lost three pounds in a week and they want me to eat even more.  This must be a great diet if you are really trying to loose weight normally, not while your pregnant.  Joshua is super active and I love feeling him move like crazy!  Mena is getting more and more possesive of him and I hope she will let Daddy help when he is born because she won't let him touch my belly at all right now.  Well, that's just a quick update.  Hope all is well with you guys!

My daughter and I

We're best pals...need I say more?!

These are my people...

Dom, Mena, and I went to Plymouth, Michigan on tax day to join our fellow Americans in a Tea Party Rally.  The speakers were wonderful!  There had to be around 500 people or so there.  Here are a few pictures.  I have a beautiful video to post but am not sure how to add it.  Any suggestions???

Easter 2010

Here are some shots from this Easter.  We had our own private Easter egg hunt in our backyard, decorated eggs at the in-laws house, discovered the Easter Basket on Easter morn, and celebrated Christ's Ressurection at an extended family members home.  Wonderful time had by all!

Well, I have been trying really hard this pregnancy to keep my blood sugar in line so I wouldn't be gestationally diabetic.  I failed that mission.  I am now 29 weeks pregnant and have gestational diabetes.  I am really sad that I couldn't do it on my own.  I now need to see a diatician and will hopefully learn some much needed info so I can keep on track.  I am excited to eat healthier as a family and hopefully this will be just the kick in the pants I need.  I really don't want to have to pass this on to baby Joshua and cause him anguish over his blood sugar later on in life. 
Like I said, I am 29 weeks along today.  I am measuring quite a bit bigger than that though.  I am measuring 33 weeks, 4 weeks ahead.  I am hoping to slow this down a bit with the new diet.  My OB-GYN says he may induce me a couple weeks early if neccesary.  He doesn't want Joshua getting over 8 and a half pounds.  I am great with an early delivery!  I just want this baby healthy.  Please pray that I can get control of this sugar stuff and really eat healthy, not only for me, but for him.
