Is it bedtime yet?

Not so much for the kids, but for me! I had an appointment this morning in Boise with my ob, so we had an early start to the day. Amanda couldn't sit today.... well, she could but her hubby got home from a couple weeks away for work at 10pm, and they didn't get home from the airport until after 1am. So I didn't want to impose. Mark wanted to come to an appointment, meet the doctor, be a sweetie- so we dragged all the kids to the doctor again. They behaved better when it was just me! Hilarious!

The doctor is very happy with how well the baby is doing. He's measuring about the 52% range for his size, at about 1lb 3oz right now. Everything looked perfect, and he's happy with how my numbers have been doing. I put on a lb from the 4 that I had lost since my 20 week appointment. The boys were busy pushing the alarm lights by the door, keeping Mark occupied during the ultrasound, which is sad. But I have plenty more ultrasounds coming and we'll just get a sitter for any appointments he wants to go to.

So I was to Boise and back this morning all before 11:30! It's a 1 hour drive each way. After a quick lunch Mark headed to an appointment of his own, and we won't see him back home until dinner, hopefully here soon. If the chicken cooks quick enough. By 2:00 I was starving for a snack. Same thing at 3:30. William crashed on the couch for a nap sometime between 4:00 and 5:00, I was reading and not sure of exactly when. He'll be up late tonight, and all I want to do right now is curl up for a nap myself. Not sure how I'll make it to bedtime!

Sounds great! I'm so glad Mark got to go with you, especially since he wanted to. So neat of him. Hope you ended up getting your much-needed rest!

Wow, What a day. Sounds like fun. I am glad to hear everything is going well with the baby. Do you have a lot of ultrasounds because you have diabetes? I have only heard of one or two ultrasounds in a pregnancy, sometimes three if there is a complication.

Yep. Every 4 weeks right now, just to make sure he isn't growing too slow or too fast.
