Tim Mcgraw



Where did that week go? Or summer in that case. I can’t believe it will be September 1st tomorrow.  This last week was crazy busy.  We started teacher in-service week for teachers.  We had a ton of meetings and then I worked on getting my classroom set up for open house and tried to get things organized for the school year.  Monday night we had our last night of Volleyball.  Our team took 4th:) Best finish in the last three years.  Kenna loves volleyball.  Every weekend she asks if we are going to Volleyball.  On Tuesday Travis had his last night of softball and I had a baby doctors appointment and I taught an oil class.  Wufta. Another late night. The rest of the week was full of other activities, open house for my new 3rd graders, fantasy football draft, and TIM MCGRAW.  It is only natural that my babies first concert was Tim Mcgraw. He has has been a favorite of mine since I was a little girl.  Needless to say I had a crazy week and was super exhausted.   

For the weekend, we took off to Trav’s parents cabin.  The weather was not the best, but we got lots of rest and ate lots of yummy food.   School officially starts on Tuesday.  So tomorrow we are doing more cleaning, shopping, and last minute school things.    

As for the baby, all things are good.  On Tuesday, we learned that I have cholestasis.   You can read more information here-  http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/cholestasis-of-pregnancy/basics/definition/con-20032985. 
I am not too worried my doctor is taking very good care of me.  I just have lots of extra monitoring.  I have my normal ultrasound at 21 weeks:) YAY- cant wait to see the little peanut.  Then I will have another ultrasound at 28 weeks. Starting at 31 weeks I will go in twice a week for more monitoring.  I will get an ultrasound and then the 2nd appointment will be 20 minutes of me hooked up to a machine so the doctor can watch the baby.  The doctor also talked about inducing me at 36-37 weeks. Wufta. So it was quite the appointment. Every doctor appointment I will also get my blood checked for my bile levels.  My bile levels are all based of my hormones, so there is nothing I can do about it.  My hormones pretty much suck.  Besides that the baby is doing well. The heartbeat was 150 and all my vitals looked great.
