Wow I am so far behind

It has been a long time since I posted anything. Sorry!

Well I am now 28 weeks, and Mason is doing great. He is moving like crazy and is much more active than his big brother was at this point. My blood sugars have been "ok" and I think it's about time for an increase in the insulin, but with my doctor who knows.

We are still down in the Valley, but I am managing. We went from being a few weeks away from pulling out to "by Thanksgiving" to "hopefully by the end of the year". DH is doing the work of 3 guys since all his guys were sent to other projects. He loves being in the field again, but I feel bad for him because between working and the gym he has to be tired. He still manages to find time for his family though and I love that about him. He is a great husband and daddy.

Nothing else to report on really. My next appointment is tomorrow so if anything exciting happens I will be sure to update y'all.

24 weeks

Not a whole lot going on right now. We found out it is a boy and his name will be Mason Alexander. I can't wait until January. I am so excited for this little boy and the relationship he will have with his big brother. Big brother loves to give Mason kisses every day. I know he will be a good big brother. Blood sugars are still under control. Still in the losing weight category, but the doctors don't seem to be concerned. Everything else is going well.

In other news... DH got a clean bill of health from his doctor and they said dh is as healthy as a 20 year old and there is no reason he won't see 100 years. This makes me very happy. I am so proud of him for all of the lifestyle changes he has made over the last 9 months. He is such a great husband and daddy.

Mason doesn't need any more clothes (at least not in newborn/0-3), hats, mittens, bibs, or wash cloths. We still need to buy everything else, but we are waiting to see what happens with the project down here before we start shopping.

It's been a while

Well it's been a few weeks since I updated the blog. I seem to be slacking in a lot of things and I swear I have pregnancy ADD. Anyway...

I am now just a day or two away from being 22 weeks. Our jelly bean (who has a name now, but we'll get to that later) is measuring a whole week ahead of schedule and is weighing in at a whopping 1 pound. Everything is going great. My blood sugars are still under control and my insulin hasn't had to be changed in quite a while. I am still losing weight, but everyone at the doctor's office doesn't seem to mind. We will see what happens when (err if) I get to see the Dr. at my next appt. 

My baby turns 2 in 5 days. Where has time gone? Seems only yesterday I was having Dr. appts for that pregnancy. He is making sure everyone knows he is in the terrible twos as well, but I love it. He is so smart, you show him how to do something one time and he is a pro at it from then on. He still doesn't talk much, but mommy and daddy can understand him. His party is next Saturday and I hope it goes well. We will also be announcing the gender of the baby to family and since none of them know about my blog I will be happy to share with you as well.

We are getting another little boy to add to our family. His name will be Mason and he is already a momma's boy like his brother. Never kicking for daddy, but as soon as daddy goes to sleep he goes to town playing with mommy. I love it. I love being pregnant and I am a LITTLE sad this will be the last time I get to experience it, but I am okay with it. It's bittersweet really.

Nothing else going on, still down in South Texas waiting to see what happens with the job. Should know more in a month. 

No belly pic this week, I will come back on Tuesday or Wednesday (if I remember) and post one. We are leaving Wednesday to go to Abilene for the birthday party. Won't be back until Sunday night.

18 weeks

I totally skipped week 17 because I didn't have a card reader for the new computer. My PC had one built in but the Mac doesn't so I had to get a card reader. Anyway, not much to say today really. Dr appt is on Friday and we should schedule the U/S for 2 weeks after that, but I won't be announcing it on here until after September 12th. We have a big reveal planned while we are at my family's for my son's birthday party.

Speaking of my son...he is 23 months today... HOLY CRAP!!!! Where has the time gone? He will be TWO in exactly one month. EEEK

Anyway so here is my pic from this morning.

15 weeks today

I guess I don't really have much to say this week. I still don't feel pregnant and often forget that I am. I can't wait to feel kicks and punches and I can't wait to find out the gender. Hopefully soon. Well I guess that is all really. See you next week when hopefully I have more to report on.

YAY for second trimester!!!!

Today I am 14 weeks. It seems to have gone too fast. I know I say that in every post but seriously how am I 14 weeks already? By this time with my son I had clothes and diapers bought. This time I have only bought 2 onesies and I received some gifts from my wonderful BFPB on the Bump. I did some trades on WTE but I still don't have much. I don't even fill up a box with the stuff I have for this baby.

We did pick out our double stroller though. We probably won't buy it until we get to DFW since we don't have anywhere to put it. Ugh I can't wait until October. I am so ready to move. I secretly hope they don't get the rest of the NTPs on the job so we can maybe leave sooner. I wish for this every day.

My next dr appt is tomorrow and I can't wait to hear the heartbeat again. I am also really looking forward to my next U/S so we can find out the gender (hopefully in August).

Well here is my pic. It doesn't look very good, but oh well.
