I can't believe it's been over a month since I've posted. I apologize to those who visit regularly. It's been a pretty rough time lately with my pregnancy and any spare minute I have when I'm actually feeling all right has been devoted to my family and home.

New news? Well, thanks to my friend Becky our family now has a new pet, a (female) gecko named George. She is really pretty neat. I'll have to post some pics later. I don't think I ever in my life imagined I'd be raising crickets as a food source, or for any other reason really. :)

As for this baby boy of mine, he seems to be doing just fine. He is extremely active (keeps me up at night already) and the doctor says I'm measuring great. As for me, I have been dealing with high blood pressure and the looming threat of bed rest and medication. This past Friday at my appointment I found out I flunked my 1 hour glucose test which means I may have gestational diabetes. I have to go in for a 3 hour test this week to see. No fun.

On a lighter and much more fun note, our family is really excited about Christmas this year. All of my shopping has been done for awhile and all I have to do is wrap gifts, which I enjoy doing other than the whole bending over my big belly this year. ;) The kids' last day of school for 2 weeks is tomorrow. I look forward to getting to spend time with them. Nick will also be on vacation for about a week and 1/2 which is really nice.

Please keep me in your prayers during these last 2 months of pregnancy. (Can you believe it? only two months left?!) I am really scared about the bed rest thing though. I have way too many people that depend on me to be sitting on my butt all day.

Well, if I don't post again until after Christmas..... I hope everyone has a joyous holiday!!
