It's Been Awhile  
Wow, it's been a while since I posted.  Perhaps a ridiculously long while.  I could say that nothing has happened since I last posted, but that would be a slight understatement.

But, the biggest news is that Ella is going to have a little brother or sister!  July 27 is the day.  Given that I already know I have to have a c-section this time, it worked out well that my doctor was actually on-call on my actual due date so we could schedule it that day.  I think 7-27 is a good birthday.  Once again we aren't finding out if the baby is a boy or girl.  Ella insists that it is a girl.

This pregnancy has been a bit more difficult than with Ella, mainly because I didn't have a 3 year-old to chase around back then.  I could go to bed at 7 pm if I wanted to.  Ella's excitement level about the baby comes and goes.  Last month she asked if the baby's mommy was in my bell too.  I don't think she was very impressed with my explanation that I would be the baby's mommy just like I'm her mommy.

I just found out Tuesday that I have gestational diabetes with this pregnancy as well.  It's rather frustrating, but I was pretty much expecting it.  I don't have the option of an oral medication this time if it can't be controlled with diet, so I might end up on insulin.  Given my love of needles, I'm not exactly happy about that option.

Matt went back to work full-time in December.  He decided the mostly stay at home dad option was not for him.  It's put a bigger demand on my time, so between that and work exploding these last few months, I haven't had time to do much but read LJ in fits and starts.  I think about you all often, however, and even if I don't comment on posts, I do read what you're all writing!

Here's a recent picture of Ella from our trip to the zoo on Mother's Day.  It's so hard to believe that she's a full-fledged little girl now.  All of the "baby" is gone. 

I've missed you all!

I got gestational diabetes with my kids, but I was able to control it with diet. It's not fun, but doable. And definitely better than the shots.
