Seriously people, time got away from me. I don’t even remember the last time I wrote… But I’m back, to Iowa, back to my normal life, and thus, an update! But where to start!
Materniti21 Results – Let’s start with the exciting stuff! Last Thursday my doctor’s office called with my Materniti21 results. And it was all good news! Results were negative for any chromosome abnormalities, and…. it’s a girl! I’d be thrilled with either a boy or girl, but I think two girls so close in age will be fun! We had an ultrasound way back when my blood was drawn for that test, which I don’t think I ever posted. A profile picture, and then a little foot, which was 1cm long at 12 weeks.
Belly Pictures – I guess I need to start these again. I personally hate them, but I kind of like looking back and comparing, so I guess I’ll do them again… This was taken this morning, so a bit over 13 weeks. Yes, I cut my head off on purpose 😉 And I think my behind is actually larger than my baby bump… I better cut back on my McDonald’s runs. I’m in maternity jeans but regular shirts still.
Nora’s IgG Results – Finally got these back! Last check was only 107, and it’s now 211, which is hugely encouraging. I mean, it’s still a far cry from normal, which is around 650, but we’re getting closer. And really, it’s just good to know it’s increasing. They still want to check it every 4-6 weeks until it’s in the normal range. Ugh. But it could be worse.
Las Vegas – I got back last night from Las Vegas, a trip Eric purchased for my birthday, for just my mom and me. I was seriously scared to leave Nora, but I have to say, Eric really impressed me. Even if his parents were there to help. My mom and I had a wonderful time, eating, shopping, sightseeing, etc. It was just nice to get away, and get an actual night’s sleep, without peaking at the monitor every hour! We stayed at the Venetian and even had a limo from and back to the airport! I’m still exhausted today though, as I think we walked over 17 miles! I took some random pictures, if you’re interested, click here.
Otherwise, I’m not sure what is new… I lead a really boring life you know! Nora was really cute this morning when she saw me… Huge smile! And she was super sweet all morning, didn’t seem to be as clingy as last week. She played on the floor without needing me right there. She even attempted to lay on Kona, and Kona’s bed, which is currently in the middle of our living room. And, she took a two-hour morning nap! That never happens! So I was actually able to shower and relax!
Alright, until next time, I hope you’re all well!
