25 weeks with #2

Here is the belly shot I promised. I feel good, but I think I need to get some new maternity clothes. I'm not much for needing the latest fashion, but wearing the same pair of jeans every day is getting BORING! Why do maternity clothes have to be so expensive?
Baby #2 is still growing strong. We had an ultrasound a few weeks ago and everything looks great. I even got to watch to whole thing on a little screen while the tec was taking the measurements. What a difference from when we went in while I was pregant with Naomi. For the whole crazy story click here. When Ron came in the tec showed us all the major organs and all its limbs, assuring us that everything was looking great. In total we were in the office for less than half an hour. It's amazing what a relief it is to see our little one and to know that s/he is healthy. Baby was pretty calm durring the ultrasound and was trying to suck it's thumb. Maybe this baby will like a soother, unlike Naomi.

Everything about this pregancy is so different than it was with Naomi except for one major thing.... Gestational Diabetes! I took the one hour glucose test and failed which means I get to go back for a three hour test, yay for me! I am sure I will fail that one also, since there is a 70% chance of having it again after having it once already. I can't say that I was really surprise to hear that I have it again. This time I know I can do it and I already know what to expect. The one plus side is that it really forces me to watch what I am eating and therefore makes the whole family eat a lot healthier.
I am tired of calling this baby #2 (I always think of the Ausin Powers movie). He or she needs a good nickname. Naomi was called "Bean" so I think this baby deserves one too. So this is a challenge to all of you out there who read this blog. Help us give a nickname to #2. Leave a comment with your suggestions and I'll pick one!

"To laugh often and much, to win
the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false
friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, or a garden patch... to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This
is to have succeeded!" - Emerson
