30 weeks

We have officially made it to 30 weeks in this pregnancy. Little Brooke now weighs 3pounds which puts her in the 52nd percentile. This means the gestational diabetes has not had any affect on her weight at this point. I have also done a good job with adjusting my diet and controlling my blood sugar levels, so I just need to continue what I am doing for the rest of the pregnancy. Here is the latest picture of our girl. I think she is going to look a lot like her brother.

I am so thankful to God for this pregnancy and our little girl. I struggled with my faith after the birth and death of our son. I look back now and I am amazed at how God has worked in our lives over the past year. Trey and I are both closer to the Lord and each other as a result of all we have been through. I feel so very blessed to be married to someone who is continually growing spiritually and is the spiritual leader of our family.

Well, it's official....

Audrey (not pictured) has swine flu.

It's a little scary since they put pregnant women in the high risk category, but hopefully the precautions we took will prevent spread, and Cheri will not get it. Please keep us in your prayers.

Baby Name

It is hard to believe it has been almost 4 weeks since Trey blogged that we reached 24 weeks. I'll be 28 weeks on Monday. Thankfully, the time has flown by. But I'm also starting to get a little nervous about getting everything ready just in case this baby girl decides to come early. The nursery has been painted, the crib is ready and some clothes have been cleaned and put away. But I still feel an urgency to get everything in order in the next few weeks.

Well, I guess it is time to reveal the name since many people have already been told in person. We have decided to name our little girl Brooke. No family significance to this name. It's just a name we both liked and agreed upon kinda like Luke. We have narrowed down the middle name to just a few choices, but have not settled on one yet. It will be a family name, though.
