June 30 Drs Appt Report

We had another drs appointment today and everything went fine. I gained 5 lbs so I am up to a total of 9 lbs now. The dr is not upset about the low weight gain but he is going to do another sonogram at our next visit to make sure she is growing at the rate she needs to. We got to listen to her heartbeat again and it was very strong this time. The strongest I have heard during our pregnancy. I know she is growing because my clothes are getting tighter and tighter everyday. So something is going on in there ... :)

We have officially moved into the "every 2 weeks" appointment phase. Our next appointment will be July 14 @ 3:00 p.m. I will post pictures of the sonogram as soon as I can. John is very excited about getting to see "the kid" again as he says.

The carpet for Mary Audrey's room should be in this week according to the carpet place so maybe her room will start resembling a baby's room soon.

More in two weeks - :)

June 6 Drs Appt

Everything went well at this month's doctors appointment. Mary Audrey's heartbeat was good and she even kicked the dr while he was listening. I did gain 4 lbs this month so that puts me up to a 3 lb total weight gain so far. :( Mother, however, says I am going great with that since she had gained 20+ lbs at the 6-month mark with Jo and me. I did have another gestational diabetes test this morning and that came back fine.

The dr said our trip to NE in two weeks will be my last big trip. I can go to Jackson and such but no other traveling due to the hot weather and potential for blood clots due to long periods of sitting.

Next appt: June 30, 2008

Well, our house is officially off the market. Lots of lookers ... no takers so we will stay at Plum Road for a little while longer. Mary Audrey's room is coming together nicely. John and I bought out Babies 'R Us a few weeks ago, including bassinet, car seat, stroller, pack-n-play, swing, bouncie seat, diaper genie, bathtub, and monitors. We went to Woodland Furniture outlet (in north MS) the following weekend and found her furniture. You can take a peek at by visiting We ordered the cherry finish and it came in last week. We are changing the carpet in her room so we are waiting on that before we start to put the furniture together. I have also picked some fabric for her room. Take a peek at and

That is all the updates I have now. I will post again soon.

I think that is about all for now ...

The 4-H Office has gotten in the spirit of a new baby and has made this poster for John's door. It is so cute! They are actually quite talented artists!
