Baby Harris #3 will make his/her debut sometime in July. So far, so good. There have already been many, many doctors appointments with many, many different doctors and lots of complaining and whining on my part, but the baby is looking healthy, which was our biggest concern. I have my first anatomical scan in 4 weeks and we can get a much better look then--including perhaps a gender shot! Keep your fingers crossed that things are developed enough to see what this little one is!
With all of the inconvenient doctors visits comes some perks: I have been approved for a new pump and we are working on approval from my insurance company for the brand new Guardian Real Time System by Medtronic. This is such a cool and helpful break through for individuals with diabetes. The Guardian REAL-Time System glucose sensor is a tiny electrode inserted under the skin that measures glucose levels in the interstitial fluid found between the body’s cells. It does this every 5 minutes and sends the reading directly to your pump so you can track what your readings have been and in doing so completely prevent hypoglycemia. Anyone can see how this would be helpful to someone suffering from diabetes, let alone a pregnant woman. Say your prayers that Blue Cross Blue Shield sees the benefits I would reap from this amazing new break through and that they grant our petition to cover this.

Anyway, that's the news. I will post some 3D ultrasound pics when I get them (I think they will do it with the anatomical scan in 4 weeks).
