An apple a day...

...doesn't keep the doctor away! Okay, so maybe if I did eat an apple a day it would keep the doctor away:)

I had my 28 week appointment today with my doctor, and for the first time EVER, I actually got in and out in a reasonable amount of time. Usually I wait for hours, and today we were finished by 10:00 after showing up around 8:3o! Good thing too, because Aaron had to leave around 11:00 to travel up to Waco for an interview tomorrow.

Anyways, back to the appointment. I had the one hour glucose tolerance/gestational diabetes test done today. I am still waiting for the results, but hopefully they'll come back okay. The appointment was pretty routine, my weight is good, I am measuring right on track, baby's heart rate and movement is good, and my BP is great too.

I asked my doctor when my cerclage will be removed, and she said she'll take it out at 37 weeks!!! Yay! That's only 9 weeks away! I guess we might be having an early April baby! Aaron also asked about "catching" the baby at delivery, and if all goes well, he should be able to do that. I think it would be pretty cool for Daddy to deliver his own baby, so pray that everything goes according to plan for delivery.

Well, like I said earlier, Aaron is traveling up to Waco, and then on to Garland for his last two interviews for residency. Pray that all goes well, and that he gains insight into what the programs have to offer him. Also, pray that I don't get too lonely here at home. BoBo (our dog) is comforting to be around, but doesn't offer much in the way of conversation!:)

Hope all is well with all of you, dear family and friends. Talk to y'all later!

Glad to hear that everything is going great and that you were able to escape for a while. Continue to take care of yourself and my grandson. Can't wait to see him. Robert and I will be happy to see Aaron when he comes up for his interviews. Hopefully he will be able to spare us some time.
That would be totally awesome if Aaron was able to deliver his own son. What an unique experience for him.
Take care of yourself and the grandson.
Love y'all,
