Bad at blogging...but I have an excuse???

Tuesday, March 1, 2011
You see I have been quite pre-occupied lately...below you will find some hints as to what, just what, I have been up to...

I have been taking this...
 ...and these...
 ..and these 2 times a day...(any guesses yet???)
 ...oh yeah and these if my stomach will tolerate it (otherwise I take zophran 2 times a day)....

....all for this little project we like to call Baby #2!!!!

Yes, we are expecting!!! 

We are super excited.  Our due date is September 17, 2010 but will be induced at 39 weeks with that date being September 10, 2010 (ironically the date of the ISU vs. Iowa game for which we have tickets too - yes we will decide about that when we get closer!!!).   We have already had 2 ultrasounds to make sure the baby is progressing as it should given my condition.  I also started my lovenox shots twice a day to help prevent a blod clot going to the placenta.  In addition I take folic acid and vitamin B in addition to a prenatal vitamin as my body does not metabolize those well and they are critical for fetal development.  Needless to say, I am popping pills like crazy.  Just like last time, I am sick, sick, sick.  Thank goodness for my awesome, wonderful, fantastic husband who has stepped up to the plate to help with dinners, cleaning, and Solon.  My worst time of day is from 5pm on and generally I am on the couch or in bed.  I am hoping like with Solon this will pass when I move into my 2nd trimester in 2.5 short weeks.  I am now 11.5 weeks along.  Our family was all pretty surprised by our news as I don't think any of them knew we were trying again.  :-)   Got you!!!  Praising God for his goodness and his faithfulness -praying he will watch over and protect this little one as it grows and develops.  Its little heartbeat was 150 and 170 and the 2nd time was kicking and very active (another boy??? my 1st guess - but we won't find out).  Good job little buddy - keep up the good work!
