    How exciting!!! Congratulations Amy!! It was surprising that I had so much love to share when Baby Girl came, because I never I could love anyone as much as I already loved my Little Man. That is the great thing about LOVE. :) And even though having two means very little rest, it’s totally worth it and so much fun!!! Congrats again to you and your family!

    Congratulations Amy!!
    So glad you are feeling well!
    I thought of you over the weekend, as my oldest son and daughter made the ice cream base from your cookbook (that I tested a recipe for in my pre-blogging days) and did the freezing with dry ice per instructions from a library book from a Popular Science writer!
    See what you have to look forward to? Turn them loose in the kitchen and you never know what will happen!
    Praying for you, Baby Green, Joe and Nate
    ps You look great!!

    Congratulations! What lucky babies Nate and Baby Green #2 are to have a mommy so talented in cooking them up delicious, yet healthy things to eat! Your blog is my go-to place when I need some help adjusting things for my own SF family.

    Sorry to split hairs, but this is my particular bone to pick, but I just have to (gently) correct that the baby’s *sex* is forthcoming… A ubiquitous misnomer, but a misnomer nonetheless.

    The gender will be up to Baby Green to decide, usually by age 2 or 3. It usually matches the sex, but not always. I have one who’s does and one who’s doesn’t and they are both my special, perfect little angels. ;-)

    Congratulations again!

    Congratulations!! I am due with my 4th on June 29th and I know exactly what you mean about not sitting down during the day! My kids have all outgrown naps, so there’s no resting for me this pregnancy! I have a question for you, if you have a moment to answer it. What do you do when it comes time for the blood test for gestational diabetes? Do you drink the glucose drink? Or do you know of an alternative? I don’t want to drink the glucose drink because I haven’t been having any processed sugar and I feel so much better than when I do consume it. My blood sugar levels have been just fine in all of my other pregnancies, so I am considering skipping the test, but I wanted to see if there is a good alternative, like a fasting blood sugar test or drinking orange juice or something?
    Congratulations, again!! My kids are 20 and 22 months apart, as they get a little older it’s great having them so close together, they have a built in playmate!

    @Kassia, Not sure if this will help you at all, but I am pregnant with #5 and I’ve been borderline diabetic before. My midwives do a different test than the traditional glucose. I took a fasting sugar in the am with a glucometer then had a low carb high protein breakfast 2 hours before my appointment. And 45 minutes before my appointment I had to drink 10 oz. of welch’s grape juice (has sugar, but no corn syrup) before the appointment and they drew my blood sugar at the appointment. That is how they do the glucose challenge test.

    I am pregnant with #3 and #4. Yep twin boys AGAIN. Thank goodness my oldest twins are 5 so I do get to occasionally take a nap while they play quietly. Are you going to find out the sex of the baby?

    Congrats Amy! What a beautiful surprise in my inbox; I couldn’t be happier for you and your lovely family. You’ve been in my thoughts a lot these last few weeks as I’ve been trying to troubleshoot some old baking recipes. Are you hoping for a girl, or a “matched set”? =)

I know you work hard and I love that you talk about how pregnancy and having children forces you to slow down and focus in on what needs to be done and what matters. That photo of you and Nate is adorable. He has such character in his face.

    Hi Amy,
    Chiming in with my congrats! Not sure how you were able to get your upcoming story for Gluten-Free Living on the gluten-free/sugar-free diet done while you were in the very early stages of pregnancy! I could barely get out of bed in the first trimester with my three children. So kudos to you. It looks like you are going to be able to handle two little ones quite well.
    One final note, my youngest was born on July 28 – a great day to greet the world.


    Amy Reply:

    @Amy Ratner, I was lucky enough to be not as sick with this one as I was with Nate. I was like you the first time around – so sick I could barely move. I am grateful it was easier this time.

    I had a great time working on the article and the recipes. So excited to see it in print! I love my work so, even if I’m less than 100% it’s still something that I am happy to do.

    Wouldn’t it be neat if our new baby was born on the 28th too?
