A RE-intro!

hiya - just posting a bit of a RE-intro - after posting a few times back in August, I went back to work full time in September and had a helluva time getting my life back in some semblance of order! I've lurked every now and then, but just did not have the time/energy to check regularly and post anything...

so... anyhoo...

I'm Karen - I'm canadian, DH is Swiss and we live in Switzerland. We were a bit surprised to find out we were expecting #2 - we were in the 'not trying, not preventing' camp and since it took a year to get pg the first time, we figured it would take at least a few months the second time!!
We have one DS who is 18 months old, and #2 is due to arrive at the beginning of April.
I had a pretty rough time with the first tri - lots of nausea, normal first tri exhaustion along with the tiredness of going back to work after a year and a half off, plus I had terrible insomnia - also had quite a few bouts of spotting/light bleeding that had me totally freaking out... now that all of that is behind me, I'm starting to feel a bit more secure about things and looking forward to LOs arrival.
We have our BIG u/s next week, and will likely find out the gender - we didn't with DS and I loved the surprise when he arrived, but I'm really feeling I want to know this time - especially since I'm really hoping to be on team pink... we shall see...

so.. that's me - re-introducing myself - and sincerely hoping I'll be able to drop in more regularly and get in on all the action here!

Welcome back! Your DS is adorable!!!

What day do you have your u/s? I'm hoping to get on team blue when we find out Tuesday. That is if LO cooperates.

Glad your 1st trimester is over and that you seem to be feeling better!

Karen!!! I've missed you!! I'm so glad that you are back with us again. And I also thing that we are due for a round of girls, since we seem to be going in waves of pink and blue with these ultrasounds.

I hope work is going well, and I'm glad you made it through the first tri yuckies!
