Our BIG news

We got a new car!!!



But that's just to throw you off :)


I'm always scared to share this news since diabetic pregnancies are so high risk. I'm afraid once it's publicly announced something terrible will happen. Just like I bought a bunch of girl clothes and Jayden turned out to be a boy :). All bad karma aside- we're very excited to announce that I am 13 1/2 weeks pregnant and have made it past the first trimester!


13 1/2 weeks

I have a due date of February 2nd- and since they never let a diabetic go full term I will be induced the week of January 23rd if no other complications arise.

This pregnancy has been SO different than my last.

*Morning sickness in full force... still waiting for food to regain it's appeal.

*I definitely have been more tired. I know, I know- I have a two year old so what should I expect? But it has been exhaustion beyond chasing a two year old. It's very different than my first pregnancy.

*With Jayden my skin got super clear, My hair grew in really thick and I had to shave maybe once a month. I LOVED pregnancy. This one- bad skin, my hair is falling out in the shower, and I have to shave every few days... what!?!?!?

*With Jayden I didn't get big very fast, but just gained weight in the belly area. This one... well, I'd rather not talk about it since it's a sensitive subject.. grumble.. grumble....

So this pregnancy has been difficult but I am very grateful that we have been given the opportunity to bring another baby into the world. We're excited for our family to grow a little bigger. Since this pregnancy is so high risk we go to the Doctors a lot. I get to see the baby once a month via ultrasound which is really neat. We're hoping to find out the sex on Aug. 19th. *crossing fingers*

Diabetes has been under pretty good control during the last few months. It's never perfect which is frustrating because Im a perfectionist- BUT we're praying really hard that there won't be any complications.

Anyway- that sums up why Im getting so fat and have been a hermit ;)

YEAH! That is so exciting! I am glad you will have another little one. I feel like I haven't seen you in forever! I bet it is a girl, not only because it is different, but seems like everyone I know is having girls!
What kind of car is that? I like it, it is really nice! I am jealous. Until Clif has a job we still don't have enough room for everyone in a car!
