Update

Hi all,

Sorry for the late thread and the time away from the Forum. I miss everyone terriibly and I am in dispatch right now at work so I am using the time I have here to pay a visit to my Friends. Pregnancy is going Ok right now. My Wife has some high blood sugar right now but we figure that's the juices she's been drinking lately. It's all natural stuff, Orange and apple Juice with no addded sugar but alot of natutrally occurring sugar in it. Once we get Dovanna on eating oranges and apples in place of drinking her juices it should stabilize a bit and get it down. Also Dovanna's been depressed lately. The Baby Blues they call them. We have that under control right now which is good.

In the meantime I have exiled myself to the couch for the remainder of the pregnancy and plan to stay there for my Dovanna so she can have the bed and get some solid sleep. Small price to pay for the hard work that she'll have to do once the baby arrives. I also have ten days off after the baby is born. We don't really have a lot of names picked out. I have a boys name picked out that has still kept it's appeal-Noah Joseph Theodore Jones. I like it and so does Dovanna. I still work the two jobs and all in all I would say I can do it all for the most part. Sometimes eight days a week if you can picture that. I am going to post some pics if Dovanna let's me and doesn't punch me out first.

Take Care to All

Kind Regards

Derek

Derek,

It's nice you had a chance to post an update. We missed you and Radar's cute little smile. Can't wait to see pictures of your new baby.

Derek,

I'm so excited for you both. You're in for a magical time (and some sleepless nights). There's nothing like waiting for that baby who will change your life forever. I'm looking forward to more updates and news of the happy arrival when the time comes.

Thanks for the update.

Well thanks Very Much to you all. I am very happy that I am able to give updates to everyone. Dovanna is doing Ok but getting all of the unexpected things that women don't want when they are pregnant including the fatigue, sore back, difficulty getting up from sitting and a whole slew of problems I can't even fathom.

P.S. Radar is my Hav. Ryan has Beamer.....

Hey Derek!! Glad to hear all is settling down. I love the name Noah - that is so nice!! No girl names agreed upon yet huh!! I cannot believe that I know a man who is willingly admitting that he is sleeping on the couch and the preggie wife is hard to deal with!!! It will all be over the second you see that face!! Keep us up to date, we are keeping you guys in our thoughts.

I love the name! I considered it when I was pregnant, it was a close 2nd.

I ended up with a "Jacob", and he has the kindest, most loving heart. I just wonder if he'll have a bazillion sons! LOL Time will tell.

Yes, pregnancy can be rough, but its all worth it! I remember being quite miserable and fat too. lol, its a drag. and there was always a foot in my ribcage quite pleasant...lemme tell ya. lol
