~Baby Update, Phillip's b-day, and Comargo camp~

I had an ultrasound last Thursday and they estimated that our baby girl weighs about 5 lbs. 3 oz. and she should gain about 1/2 lb. each week, and I have 4 weeks left. Here's hoping that they are right, for maybe she won't weigh too much. I'd love her to weigh in between 7 and 8 lbs. and not 10 lbs. 6.7 like her big brother Noah weighed! =) I did find out that I have gestational diabetes again this time. =( So, I'm trying to be careful with my eating (I have the whole time I have been pregnant) and trying to exercise each day. Thank the Lord I don't have extra fluid this time. With Elijah I was carrying about 30 lbs. of extra fluid! They also are doing a non-stress test on our baby each week because I'm "over age"! =D (They say I'm "over age" since I'm over 35. I'm 36.) My sister-in-law Beth was with me when they told me I was "over age" and so she enjoyed calling me the "elderly pregnant lady" the rest of the time. =)

~Here are the pics from Comargo camp. We had a wonderful spiritually uplifting camp! A lot of these pics are from the kitchen, for that is where I could be found most of the time. I loved getting to bake treats and fellowship with a bunch of fun ladies. Here I am with my pregnant buddy, Deanna. She is expecting twins in December. =)

It was an awesome camp. God's presence settled down in many services and there were many seekers at the altar. On the last night there were approx. 100 seekers at the altar. We Thank God that our family got the privilege of attending our Comargo camp!!
