Baby Update and other things...

I went to my OB appointment this morning. We are at 31 weeks today! Now, I will be switching to the every 2 week appointments. My blood pressure was great (110/62), as was my weight. I have only gained 11 pounds this pregnancy so far. I think that this is mainly because of how sick I was in the beginning. Baby's heart rate was 160. I am feeling good about all of that. He wasn't too concerned about my swelling at this point. I just need to put my feet up when I can.

Also, we have an induction date-September 10! It is hard to believe that it is all coming so quickly. If it looks like, I might go earlier, he will move the induction to September 3. I am fine with either date. The older boys will be in school by then which is what I am praying for. I have to be there at 6 AM, so I will probably drive up myself so Andy can get the boys up to school and get Michael settled with my sister. We'll have the issue of 2 cars at the hospital, but I figure we can get someone to help us get one of the cars home.

So, besides baby, there are big changes coming down the pike at my job. I have been teaching online in a remediation program in the evenings for 3 1/2 years. I have also worked my way up the supervisory ladder. The company is going through restructuring, and my extra positions are being eliminated. They are replacing 2 positions with a new one called "Lead Teacher". At least 80 people are going to be applying for 15 of these positions. I submitted the application and my resume this morning. If I don't get it, then I go back to being just a teacher, and I lose the pay upgrade I had with my extras. Please pray that I get one of these positions. It's not just about the money, it is also about losing what I have worked so hard to do at the company. Thanks in advance!

Wow, 11 pounds!! I'm at the 45 weight gain right now, which means it could be easily 60 like the rest!! All that extra weight just drags me down!

How about Sept 9th? My birthday? :)

Prayers for your job, don't get stressed out, it's in God's hands, He's already there.
