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

  1. So you (and your baby!) will arrive in England on March 7th...And your Dad & mom, alonga me will arrive in England on March 12th! Spoke to your Auntie Thellie a few minutes ago and she is looking forward to seeing us all. Exciting time. Your Aunt Pat had gestational diabetes when she was expecting Tommy (Now almost 16 - and driving!) YIPES!
