Baby Cole Update

We went to the doctor today to get a check up on baby Cole.  Naomi had to do the glucose test that checks for gestational diabetes.  The checkup on baby Cole went really quick and well.  He was active and had a great heartbeat.  This is good news always.

Naomi's blood pressure had been slightly rising at the house for the past week.  This is something that we know will probably happen because it has happened with our two previous boys.  When the doctor checked her blood pressure today, it was lower than it has been in a few days. Praise the Lord!

The glucose test didn't come back as good.  They said that her levels were "elevated."  This might be in part to the ice cream and Cheetos that she had last night before bed.  I know... ice cream and Cheetos??? Hey, she's pregnant with one of the greatest boys that will ever walk this earth... it's okay.  I really think that it was the late night snack that caused the "elevated" levels.  Naomi will have to go next week for the 3 hour glucose test.

I ask that you pray for her during this time.  We are praying that there will be no signs of gestational diabetes.  We ask that you join us in this prayer.  We know that our Lord is walking us through this time and will see us through no matter what the tests say.
