Well I had my 28 week appointment today as well as my blood drawS for the glucose test. I won't have any results until tomorrow. So far I have gained 18 pounds - which apparantly is fine ... not with me though ... but the Dr said so far I am the doing everything perfect. He did pinpoint the estimated delivery date thoughand said that in all reality December 30th looks more like a for sure thing than a hopeful thing. I start going to see him every 2 weeks now and after 36 weeks every week. Since my blood pressure was still high (140/82) he hinks it will rise more as the baby grows and puts pressure on my inards. He also prepared me for more ultrasounds if things become an issue - but as of right now all is well. We heard the baby again today ay 151 bpm which is excellent. He mentioned taking extra calcium to take away the joint pain in my hips. He is a great DR and at this point is leaving things in my court when it comes to making decisions. But to tell you the truth I am 100% ok with delivery on December 30th so long as Charlotte is doing well. On the home front things are progressing - thank you to all of you for the uplifting words ... it is still a shock bu I know it will be great when it is done. Today they framed in Jaden's bedroom window and put the subfloor down. Tomorrow the roofers are coming to shingle the roof and by the end of next week they said the interior should be framed and ready fr electrical and HVAC ... so things are chugging along here. We don't have much planned for the rest of the week - aside from a flu shot for Jaden Friday we are hanging out and watching the house transform. Saturday of course is the baby shower which should be fun ... like I've said before - I have great friends here ... I am sure there will be plenty of photos to share ... but until then - here is a recent one of Jaden posing in her new clothes and some more of the house ... Hope you are all having a great week! See you on Friday for FFF ...

Love ~ The Clark Family ~ Rebekah, Jason, Jaden & Baby#2 too

Oh, how exciting to see the house coming along. I bet Jaden will just love her new room.

You look GREAT! Only 18 pounds is awesome. December 30th will be here before you know it. :)

LOVE the picture of Jaden!
