Hope you are all doing well. It's been a while since I checked in here lately. Been busy getting the house and everything ready for the baby. Finally have purchased EVERYTHING we need and gotten the room all straightened out.

I am now 31 weeks and went from feeling great to...well not so great. Maybe it will pass or maybe this is just it until the end. Guess we will see! The stomach virus I have had for the last couple of days has not helped.

I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes a few weeks ago and that has been a challenge to keep under control with diet. Seems like some days it is just high for whatever reason.

I am finally feeling excited about this baby-it took a while, but now I am starting to be anxious for her arrival. We have decided on the name Madeline Jane. Jane is after my mother who passed a couple of years ago-I wish she could be here to meet the baby.

I hope you all are doing well-I will try to check back more often.

It's  great to hear from you :smileyhappy:  Sorry you're dealing with the tummy bug stuff.  I had that as well and ended up having to go in to L&D to get some IV fluids.'re almost there!  Brilliant news.  Madeline Jane is a beautiful name.  My middle name is Jane and I have a cousin Maddie..  (Madeline).  I'm sorry to hear about your Mum..  I'm sure she's with you and will be with you all the way.  My grandmother passed at the moment I gave birth to my daughter and I know she was there and helped her.  My daughter was born with an "angel's kiss" on her nose.  It's what the dr's called it.  It was a red heart shaped mark on the tip of her nose, referred to as an angel's kiss.  They go away after a few weeks.

I bet you're so excited!
