permalink 27 weeks! and all is well...

Finally an update! Have been meaning to write for so long again but time just runs away at the moment, with every spare moment taken up by the things on my To Do Before Bub 2 List...

fence will be up tomorrow...
room painted soon...
car has been serviced, now has air con...
new bolt in car for baby capsule...
garage cleared out to make room for cool play space and occasionally the car...

But to sum up, besides the tiredness at the end of the day I feel fantastic. I LOVE the second trimester. I feel as though my sugar levels have been more erratic with this pregnancy but my HbA1C is still at 5.9 which I'm really happy about. So far my ultrasound scans look good. Bub's due date has been set at 17th January 2006 and he is measuring perfectly for these dates. Blood pressure still normal. Protein in the urine less than it was at this time last pregnancy. Albumin levels higher (which is a good thing). My endocrinologist says not to place too much stock in these readings as each pregnancy is different, but basically 'So far so good'.

My ob is talking about 37-38 weeks as being their goal for me and although I think it's ambitious, given how oedemic I was just before 37 weeks last time, I must admit this makes me happy. It will be interesting to see what my old ob says when I swap back to her
