I got a good review at the last checkup. The baby's heartbeat was good and strong(loud and clear, not soft like before), I'm on track as far as my weight goes, I've brought my sugar and ketone levels down, brought my fluid intake up and everything is looking good. Yeah! It was very encouraging and I'm feeling good. I've been feeling little flutters of movement, but not much localized "kicking" yet. But I'm enjoying the little bit that I've been given for now. I definately look pregnant now... unless I wear big baggy sweats - then I just look fat. But I've got some cute maternity stuff and a new haircut to help me stay cute and not let myself go - at least not every day. I'm excited for this trip to Florida next week. I think Isaac has gotten more used to the idea. I'll post pix when Lauren and I get back. Much Love!

I'm about 19weeks along now, which is about halfway through the pregnancy(give or take). I had my 18week check-up last week. My sugar levels were borderline when they tested my glucose awhile back, and diabetes runs in my family... so I'm off of sugar for the rest of the pregnancy. I've done really well so far. But its only been a week. Give me a awhile and I'll be begging for a milkshake or something, anything!
I haven't felt any definate movement inside yet but am trying to be patient, its not uncommon for first time moms to take awhile before they recognize movement.
I'm hoping to take a road trip to Florida with my sister Lauren for her senior spring break. Isaac is really nervous about me being gone for 4-5 days... but this is the last time I'll be able to do something like this for awhile and I don't want to pass it up. I'm not as fragile as he thinks I am... and my nurse said it'd be fine. It'll be fun!
