Happy New Year! I can't believe it's already 2012. Where does the time go?
I really apologize for the belated new year message, but Doc and I were in Spain, Portugal and Morocco until yesterday night. It was what you would call our "babymoon." We had a fabulous time, but I am very happy to be home. It's definitely not as easy to travel when you're pregnant and although, it was a relatively smooth trip (only one small incident of food poisoning), I'm glad to be back in my bed with all the comforts of home.
So, just an update...I'm now 25 weeks, officially past the 6 month mark and getting bigger by the day. I'm definitely feeling much better than I was during the first tri, but now I'm starting to feel other symptoms like frequent bathroom trips that lead to nothing more than a trickle, lots and lots of gas (this is more a problem for Doc than for me), and sleep deprivation. God, what I wouldn't give to be able to sleep on my back. But, really, who am I to complain when I'm so head-over-heels in love with the little man in my belly.
Now that we're a little over 3 months away from my due date, we've got a whole list of things we need to do including starting a registry, decorating the nursery and sifting through the mounds of hand-my-downs that we received from friends and family. Amazingly, I haven't purchased one single item yet for our baby. We have so many hand-me-downs, I really don't know what we would purchase. Anyone have any advice on what we absolutely need to have? In many instances we have doubles of items, like two co-sleepers (I didn't even know what a co-sleeper was until just a couple of months ago).
As for the placenta previa, I found out that I have a partial previa, so I'm hoping that it's resolved itself. I find out in a few weeks with another ultrasound, but until then no sexy time for Doc and I. Also, lucky me gets to do her glucose test next week! I've never had any issues with my sugar levels and I haven't gained that much weight, so I'm hoping that I pass. Wish me luck!
Do genes matter?
