Not what we wanted to hear... *Updated*

Well, apparently my doc appt went so well because we didn't have any test results back yet to talk about.

Glucose Test My sugar level came back high. I was too shocked and forgot to ask what the number was. At any rate, I have to go to have a 3 hour lab done tomorrow. I had this done with Tyler and it came back normal so we're praying that will happen again.

24 Hour Urine for April I do a 24 hour urine same once per month so they have something to compare to in case we were to see preeclampsia come on. My protein level for March was 94 and this month it was 240! Needless to say that is a jump and since my blood pressure has been good they are apparently not sure what is going on. So I am seeing a kidney doctor some time soon. I am on a waiting list because when I tried to make an appointment the soonest they could get me in was May 28th! I told the receptionist between my sobs, "That is unacceptable!" She said she would let the nurses know and they will fit me in the schedule. I was so blindsided that I didn't even ask what kind of tests they will be doing, so I am going to call back today to get some more answers.

I was, with reason, very upset yesterday...the protein issues didn't start happening with my pregnancy with Tyler until 35 weeks. And then I had him 3 days later. I'm praying we don't have to have this baby is just too soon. :-(

I'll update again when I have more info...

Update: Kidney doc appt May 6th at 3:00. I don't need to be on bed rest or anything until then. The nurse just reiterated we need to find out why my kidneys are spilling protein since my blood pressure has been so good. As for the what they will be doing, we're not really sure yet other than more blood work.

Is it possible?!

Can I really be almost 7 months along?! WOW! I have no idea where the time went, but it's just flying by!

I had ultrasound #6 on Monday and everything is still looking great. They gave Sprout his first "test" and he scored an 8/8! He weighs approximately 2.4 pounds and I'm measuring a week ahead of schedule. I'm positive my baby bump is bigger now than when I delivered Tyler at 35 weeks! It's really amazing how different this pregnancy has been. When people ask how I'm feeling I can finally say, "good" and mean it! :-)

On Tuesday I had a check up with Dr. S and she said everything is looking great. (I'm going every other week now and calling in my blood pressure the weeks I don't see her.) My blood pressure was up at my last appointment but this time it was 114/70! It's been very low at home also, so we are hoping this is a good sign and I'm going to go full term! We also scheduled a c-section for July 16th. Things are falling into place! We'll keep praying this baby keeps cooking as long as he's supposed to! :-)

Josh and I finally decided about a month ago to give Tyler a new "big boy room" instead of buying new baby bedding, etc. His new room is going to be what is now our office so we have to get everything cleaned out of there so we can paint and get him in there before the baby comes and he has two things to adjust to! We have twin mattresses from one of his co-workers so we just have to get a frame and headboard. His new theme is planes, trains and trucks and we've already found some cute stuff to decorate! We're going to paint a blue sky on the top of the walls and green on the bottom. Where the blue and green meet we're going to make the green look like hills. (LoL...does any of that make sense?!) We have trucks and trains to put on the hills so I'm hoping it turns out cute! I'll definitely post some pictures! :-)

BTW - Tyler just told me he has whiskers cuz he forgot to shave today! I swear, you just never know what they are going to say!!!

Sneak Peek at our baby boy!

I had no idea they were going to do a 3-D ultrasound at my appointment on March 31st! I've seen them online before and thought they were creepy. But when it was MY child it was AMAZING! We even got to watch him move around in 3-D and he opened and closed his mouth. It was unbelievable!
