What's Up

I am this excited for our England trip. We leave this upcoming Wednesday... eep! I can't even believe it. It's bringing back deja vu feelings from last time. I know this is so crazy, because I only lived in England for a few months, but it does kind of feel like home a little bit. Why is this? Just because I love it so much? Must be.

A few baby items of business:
She showed that lil mug at the last ultrasound, Feb. 17th. I needn't have worried about her being too big- she actually measured 4 days too small! The OB said anything within a week is considered normal, so girlfriend is good to go. About diabetes, I have had to up the amount of insulin I take by quite a bit, which is normal in the second trimester. The placenta gives off some kind of anti-insulin hormone that makes the insulin not work quite as well as it usually would-- so I have to take more to make up for it.

P.S. A huge shout out to Brent who is recovering from his back surgery so nicely. SUCH a blessing.

love to all. Fingers crossed I won't want to die on the long plane ride. xoxo

24-25 Weeks

Here's a shot from last Sunday, at about 24 and a half weeks. I look creepy huge. Especially from the front like that. Mind blown.

Mapping Out Our Trip

Our invasion of Britain is fast approaching. One month from tomorrow we will be on our way. As you can imagine, we are very excited. Luckily, Brent is comfortable driving over there (or at least he says he is) because it gives us quite a bit of freedom during our stay. We are landing at the Gatwick Airport on Thursday, March 6th. The car we are renting is a 3-door Kia Picanto. It is only 3595 mm long.
This is the Kia Picanto. Supposedly it gets over 50 MPG, which is great because gas (or petrol) is $8.38/gallon
