Last Thursday I went to my 27 week appointment. I went in early to do the glucose test. I passed by 1 point! An hour after drinking the glucose drink, my blood sugar was supposed to be less than 135. Mine was 134! So I passed this time around! I also saw the doctor for a regular check up. Everything is looking good. She gave me a steroid shot as a precautionary measure because of my history of pre-term labor. It is to help the baby with lung development. I will be going to the docotor weekly for check ups (already). I feel blessed that I have a doctor who is taking such good care of myself and baby Madison.
Friday I left work early to return to the doctor for the second dose of the steroid. It is a series of 2 shots that have to be within 24 hours of each other. It is a very thick injection that doesn't feel very good! You can feel the liquid travel in your veins and it burns for a few minutes. So, I will be returning to the doctor on Thursday for my weekly check up. After this week I will have passed the week that I went into pre-term with Haylee. We are trying to take it easy and taking it one day at a time.
On Saturday, my neighbor Kindell threw me a shower for baby Madi. It was family and close friends. Of course it was fabulous and we receieved many great gifts. We got a crib soother, mobile, swing, new bottles, some cute clothes, diapers, blankets, a Vera Bradley diaper bag, another monitor, a bather, hairbow holder, wall letters, gift cards, a boppy, a purple boppy cover, new bath towels, and some car seat toys. I am probably forgetting something... I have a few pictures to post.
The soon to be Big Sister and mommy!
Haylee checking out the gifts.

This week will finish up busy as well. I have reading night at school, a doctor's appointment, and we are going to San Antonio this weekend. We are taking Haylee to Sesame Street Live to see:

We will also be celebrating my birthday. I will have many more pictures to post following this weekend!
