Small update!

Baby Camryn is doing well so far. Back in September I failed my 1 and 3 hour glucose tolerance test and they diagnosed me with Gestational Diabetes. It's been ok...just rough for me b/c I LOVE me some chocolate! :) Anyways, a week after I got diagnosed they started me on Glyburide, a pill for diabetes, and it's worked ok.... I was having some lows the first few days after they increased my dosage from one pill at night to 2 in the morning and 2 at night and just yesterday I started to get back up to the higher numbers...maybe it's wearing off...? I have another appointment tomorrow for a Non-Stress Test and to go over my numbers. Then I have another appointment on Friday (they are making me come twice a week now) for another Non-Stress Test and a Growth Scan. Babies can tend to be bigger when the mom has GD, so they will measure her and I will just get to see her again :).

The trips are all doing fine! We are going through testing for the school district transition right now, and it's keeping me BUSY! I REALLY love the school that they are at right now, the Children's Center for the Visually Impaired, but I don't think our school district will want to pay to send them there :( I think it would be best for them to be at a school addressing their visual needs first and foremost in the learning process and CCVI knows how to do that better than the school district w/ one vision teacher. I've already decided that I will see how it goes and if I don't like the end result, I don't have to send them anywhere....I mean, they are only just about to turn 3 for heaven's sake!

Also Ayva got a new chair and I will post a video of her in it when I get a chance! It's awesome!

Bring someone from the current school to your meetings with the district. In Illinois you have the right to opt for the school for the visually impaired. Check to see what rights you have.
