Now I am 22 weeks...

Everything has settled down since my last post. My BP is well managed with the three tablets a day and my BSLs are stable to, so no insulin at this stage. The best part of this stage is enjoying those strong kicks every night when I settle down to watch TV :-)

Mitch & Harry are fascinated by what is happening and today I tried to explain how the baby was fed. Mitch needed to check out my belly button and then looked at his own and wanted to know where the "hose" (umbilical cord) had gone. Mitch felt the baby kick for the first time tonight and was so excited. He put his mouth down on my tummy and said "My name is Mitchell and I am your brother. I will look after you". It was just so beautiful. Harrison is pleased he will be sitting next to the baby in the car (we had new booster seats put in) and he tells me he will "play with the baby and give him milk".

We are slowly getting plans in place for the room swap - the boys will be sharing a room with lowline bunks courtesy of their Great Uncle John. And the baby will have Mitch's old room. So in the next few weeks I need to find homes for two single beds and a lounge - no rest for the wicked...

Not much else to report - just happy that everything is stable :-)

Fabulous new Lisa!
I'm so glad things are going well and Mitch and Harry are going to be great older bothers :)
I hope your room swap goes smoother than ours did with Alex.

Thanks Bec,
Should be interesting since the boys will be sharing and with a bunk bed!

that is so precious Lisa!

Just make sure YOU'RE not the heavy lifter for the room swap. Lots of work to be done, but hopefully it'll be all settled and wonderful before baby makes his appearance!
