Hello, everyone! I hope everyone is doing well and having a great SB day!!

I just wanted to check in with you and let you know how everything is going for us. I had a checkup today (18w3d) and it went wonderfully well. Our doctor is very pleased with our progress and said that we have a healthy, lively baby. She had a hard time getting baby's heart rate today, because the little stinker kept kicking the doppler. Already a stinker!

She is very happy with my health at the moment. My BP and weight have been right on track. I have had healthy blood sugar readings, but she is doing the blood glucose test early because of the history of diabetes in my family. I have been doing my best to stick with a P3 diet, but have had my share of slip-ups. I'm also getting back into the workout bug, and I really can't wait until water aerobics starts back up in May.

All in all, this has been a perfect pregnancy. I had very, very little morning sickness and a bit of fatigue, but no other extreme symptoms. According to what I've heard, I have a lot to be thankful for in that my pregnancy has been so easy so far.

I hope you're all well! I think of you often!

Kim - No date yet, but planning for sometime in Fall of 2012. We decided to do the responsible thing and pay some things off before we go getting hitched. We should be good to start saving for the wedding in January of 2012 and have a nice event in the fall! :D
