Miscellaneous Stuff

First off, thank you for all the wonderful comments on my last post. I am so glad to finally know the gender so my planning can begin in earnest... and let's not forget the arguing over names!

The doc said everything is looking great, he is growing and measuring right on target. The only two things of concern were my thyroid gland is still not in range (TSH should be between 1 - 5, and mine came back at 22.32), and my placenta is really low. She's not overly concerned about the second thing right now, but says she'll need to keep her eye on it.

Poor Elise got her MMR shot today, and I think it finally caught up with her tonight. We had some moderately high (mid 200s) numbers right after, but then she went low-ish (71) while in bed tonight. She's been crying in her sleep off and on too, so it looks like we're in for a long night.

I'm glad we were able to get her the shot (had to delay because of the strep throat) because my Mom says there's a measles outbreak in some Vancouver schools right now... YIKES! We're only about a month away from our trip up there, so I'm hoping it's all cleared up by then.

As for the World Diabetes Day shirts, we have enough people saying they're in to do an order (printer has a 12 shirt minimum), so I should have some more info on that soon. I am so excited to be able to do this again, I can't even tell you! I loved getting all those pictures of people wearing the shirts in my email last year, and I'm looking forward to seeing more!

And that's all I have to report from my corner of the world... time for bed! Good night, and good numbers!


  1. Congrats on your boy! I'm having a boy too in July. The Bean is starting to ask why we have so many brothers (we'll have 3!) and other people have so many sisters. Poor girl needs a sister. And even though I'm weeks away from having this baby, we're less decided on a name now than we were months ago! *sigh*
