Pregnancy / Baby Update
Written on March 20, 2007 by Kevin.
My wife is now just over half way done with our second pregnancy. Things continue to go well, especially compared to Rylan's pregnancy. Sickness is at a minimum and besides general cramps and other pains, she is doing great.
This time last pregnancy, I recall my wife already having needed a lot of blood drawn but this time around I think we have gone only once so far. The less the better as we both have troubles with the needles. Needless to say, we are not looking forward to the gestasional diabetes shots that she will like need to have done.
We see signs of swelling in her feet so we are trying to keep salt intake to a minimum and having her keep her feet up when possible. I recall a post I made back in September of 2005 when my wife was pregnant with Rylan. The post was simply called The shoes have shrunk.. which lays out my wife's wonderful swollen feet. It really is amazing on how much they can swell.
A few weeks ago my wife began feeling the baby girl kicking and just last week I was able to finally feel some kicks from the outside. Definitely an exciting time which really locks in the fact that you will be a parent again.
