Nothing new

I haven't posted in a while. I guess that's because there hasn't been much going on. Here is a quick synopsis of the most interesting baby-related news in our world right now.

1) My dad came and finished the crown moulding yesterday. It looks great and I can't wait to get the room put back together so I can take some pictures!

2) Yesterday I had a blood glucose reading of 154. It is supposed to be less than 120 and the highest it has ever been before is 139. I couldn't figure out why it was so high. Finally last night it came to me...the diet Coke I had at dinner tasted funny and I now believe it was probably not diet. The size Coke I had contains about 70g of carbs. My limit for the whole meal was supposed to be 60. Oops! I will have to be more careful to be SURE it is diet next time.

3) I have never had a skin tag in my life. Now my skin looks like a mushroom farm. It's annoying, gross, and painful. I read that pregnancy hormones can cause skin tags and that they typically go away after delivery...let's hope!

4) A lady I know had her baby at 33 weeks gestation over the weekend. Thankfully her baby boy is doing well. But, it scared me a little bit to think how close delivery is. Rod is going to be gone during my 36th week. I hope our baby boy decides to hang on at least until Rod returns!

Sorry I don't have anything more interesting to report. :)

I'm always so afraid of fountain sodas for just that reason! I don't drink caffeine and I'm afraid I'll get something with it and be climbing the walls! Hopefully your sugar levels are back to normal again. And I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for those skin tags to go away. Ouch!

Brooke, actually that was an interesting post. Glad the moulding got finished up, I bet the room looks fab!
One slip up isnt bad, Im so impressed with your diligence!
and... skin tags.. I am battling them right now myself. I hope yours go away, but it seems they get worse with every pregnancy.. as a matter of fact Im on the search for a dermatologist to remove them for me {this will be the 3rd time}... I could do it myself, but the thought of the OUCH is too much.. Im a wuss in my old age! hehe ;)

Well, I found it very interesting, and I check on here DAILY. lol I am amazed at how well you are keeping track of your diet. I had such a hard time keeping track of everything when I had GD. The skin tags can get removed easily if they don't go away on their own. My sister had them before.

I cant wait to see the



Gabriel is now naming your son.
