I have new U/S pics of josh but they are too fuzzy when I have them on my cell phone so I have to try again and see if I can get the contrast a little better.  The Ultrasound tech told me that josh is 6 1/2 pounds and his belly is a little big from me having diabetes and now my doctor has told me that we are increasing my insulin dosage now in order to try to bring his belly down a little or if it does not go down and he is delivered in the next 3 weeks his blood sugar level will be 20 and they will have to pump formula into him since I wont be producing enough and my doctor told me that she wants me to start pumping now in order for me to store it before I go into the hospital so that they can give him my milk.  I asked if (it might sound stupid) but if he would die from his level being that low and she advised me that he would not and I am so relieved since this is my first baby and did not know that having diabetes would bring on alot of complications and now I know more and more stuff about it.  Maybe this is why josh is my miracle baby and since I am getting close to forty ( I will be 39 this august) I guess it just depends on my body and if I am ready to have another baby after josh is around 2 or 3 and also to see what his dad says about it also (my partner)
