And Baby Makes Three!

It’s hard for me to actually believe that we are pregnant again! And I think this time it’s a keeper! The first twelve weeks have been a little nerve-wracking worrying about every little thing. Although it’s been reassuring that I’ve had a pretty hefty dose of morning sickness. Β We’ve been followed very closely by specialists because of my miscarriage history and because of the lupus, which also means we have loads of beautiful pictures of our baby-to-be!

I’m being followed by a high risk ob in Maternal Fetal Medicine. They did a large amount of baseline tests including repeating my 24 hour urine test to see if lupus is affecting my kidneys- and right now- things LOOK GOOD! The list of things that can go wrong in a lupus pregnancy is very long, but I’m going to focus on all the things that are going right.

I haven’t done any quilting (or cleaning or cooking) since I’ve been pregnant, because I just honestly feel too rotten. I’m hoping that as I get farther along I will be able to get back to my normal routine. And maybe even make a baby quilt for us! (I’ve never actually kept anything I’ve made…)

Baby is due July 27th, 2013.
