We had the best weekend at Wisconsin Dells with some great friends.  Every year we meet up with Trav’s baseball friends and their families.  It is amazing how it has changed through the years.  It is now 12 adults and 11 kids with three more kids on the way:) All three of us that are pregnant are due within like two weeks of each other! It will be so much fun next year when we have three new babes!!

The girls loved playing with the other kids, staying in a hotel, getting to go to a water park, eating pizza, and swimming in the pool. They are getting to be such a fun age and we had a blast in the hotel pool. The girls swam like little fish:)

As for pregnancy it was a little better week:)  I feel like I have a tad bit more energy. I think my iron might have been low so I increased my iron food intake a lot. We also had another ultrasound.  At our first ultrasound at 21 weeks they noticed a heart arrhythmia with little baby H.  We had to go back and get another ultrasound to make sure little baby’s heart was good and that there were no other abnormalities.  I was so worried for the last week in a half, but THANK GOD, everything came back normal and little baby H is doing great and growing nice and big! It was a long week thinking way too much and worrying way too much. I am thankful that our ultrasound had all good results and am looking forward to a low key rest of my pregnancy.
