Hives, Pregnancy & More

Greetings! It's been a while since I have been able to put an update up on here so I thought I would take a minute to let you know what's been going. It's been a month since we arrived here in Indiana and things are going really well. Mark has been doing a great job selling and we both really love the office that he's in this year. I am glad we decided to do this a second year. The pool in our apartment complex opened over the weekend so the kids have been enjoying that. I fully expect to be at the pool everyday this summer. I had a doctor's appt. this morning and everything is going well. I am 28 weeks now and getting bigger by the minute! I will try to post some new pictures soon. I have, however, broken out into hives, or a pregnancy related rash called PUPPP (the Doctor wasn't totally sure), so that has been my trial for the last week. It's totally covering my arms, hips, legs and slowly making it's way up my neck. Not fun! The doctor told me that it's most likely to last until I deliver but he would consider inducing me a few weeks early if that's the case. Thank goodness! I am using a Rx for it and hopefully it will go away very soon. Keep your fingers crossed for me!

We are all settled into our new home now! Hooray! Our computer is still broken so I am borrowing a friend's internet to post this. I will try to put some pictures up once we get our own computer. Anyways, we are living in the city of Merrillville, IN. Even though we are in IN we are only 3o min from downtown Chicago. We drove down there the other day and Mark showed me a few of his old mission apartments and areas. It's going to be a lot of fun living so close to the city this summer. We really like our apartment as well. It's a brand new complex so everything is in top shape. We are really grateful for such a comfortable place to live. We are all very happy to finally be here!
