Meet my new Doc, Madie Grace

Well, we just got back from my 24 wk OB appt  and everything looks great so far. I am going to have to go into see a nutritionist because of the possibility that I may have the Gestational Diabetes again this time. I have resigned myself to it, but man, taking chocolate away from a pregnant woman just isn't fair!! But I really don't want to have an almost 11 lb baby again either. So I guess this is it, I am officially putting myself back on the program. Sigh. Madie and Jack did great though. The doc let Madie play with the heartbeat monitor and listen for the babies rate, you should have seen her. She thought she was hot stuff after that. Everything else went great though, just trying to gear up so that I can leave San Antonio the end of March and head back to Destin. I have been going through the closets and trying to purge what we don't use or don't need and I didn't realize how much junk we have. It feels great to let stuff go though. Too bad Ben would be happy if I got rid of all of it. Anyone else with that problem?

Back to the Beach

Well, we are headed back to the beach. We found out on Friday that we will be going back to Eglin for a year for Ben to finish his phase II training for Physician's Assistant school. We will probably be renting a house in Navarre, which is a 5 minute drive from the beach. We are excited and sad to be returning. The beaches here are beautiful and I am looking forward to taking the kids a lot, and it also will be great for me to know my way around the are since I will be there by myself for a while before Ben comes. ( Air Force won't let me travel past 36 weeks, so I will be moving the end of March). We are saddened because we are military, so by nature we love going to new and exciting places. I 'm more than certain there will still be plenty of time for that though. So.... if your up to a trip to the beach, give us a call, we would love to see anyone that's in the area.
