Update - Baby/Insulin/Doctors

So final baby garrison got yet another ultrasound today cause he couldnt find the baby with the doppler again lol which is fine i like seeing the baby.
I hear now that I'm high risk lol I'll be seeing alot of this baby.
They increased my insulin to 25n 15r 15r 15r 20n - he thinks he is still low balling it but doesnt want me to bottom out.
Dr. Holmes has a wonderful bed side manner and seems to talk to his nurses alot cause all my conversation I had with the nurse he knew about and addressed each concern.
He tried to relieve some of my stress by giving me a different outlook then I've been taking which is very comforting he would take that extra time to make me feel better.
He spoke to me about this specialist that I will be seeing and talked to me about how we would handle the 32 weeks and beyond part which seems very intense with many visits to him. But I like that he is going to monitor everything and can take the baby if there is any cause of concern.
Ultrasound machine said i was 16 weeks 4 days which means it wont be too long and we will get the big ultrasound.
He asked me today what i thought I was having and I told him.... well, my body sure is reacting differently to this one so I was thinking girl, but everyone I know around me is having girls and I think they are using up all the girl spots LOL, so probably another boy LOL. He chuckled at me. Anyways. Here is a decent ultrasound profile shot. Baby was in deep thought and started moving around during the ultrasound. Always nice to have window into their lil world.

With that I'm gonna head out for a late lunch and a haircut.

Branson Vacation

Well I guess I'll tell this story in reverse since the darn photos went in opposite order.

So as many know I've been a gestational diabetic with all three of my pregnancy's. Braden I could control it by diet alone, Parker it was with the diabetic pill and now with final baby I've been put on insulin. I'm giving myself 5 shots a day. Plus pricking my finger all the freaking time.
Not enjoying the shots. I just might keep a count down of how many times i get to prick myself again.
We vacationed in Branson MO at the end of April.
We enjoyed the Dixie Stampeed ALOT. The boys loved the horses and the food. Braden loved the soup so much he chugged it (no silverware) and Parker just ate everything he could see and then proceeded to throw up while in the backseat.
Family photo at the Stampeed.
Boys loved the swimming pool. They were so excited. I didnt get to participate I was up in the room sick. The boys of course caught my crap a few days later and we have been miserable together.

This weekend has not been good. Been getting used to the insulin trying to eat all the time, trying to keep the boys semi entertained while they are cranky and not feeling well. Just very overwhelming. Glad the weekend is over. I have two doctors appointments this week. One with Dr. Holmes my OB, and then one with my Diabetic lady. I'm sure they will be upping my dosage of insulin cause my numbers still arent where they want them. But I've been fighting this cold and alot of stress so that isnt helping my numbers one bit.
