Pregnancy...it has definitely gotten better now that I'm in my second trimester. Thankfully, I have the blessing of having a relatively easy time thanks to my mom. She was nauseous but never threw up and after the first trimester, had no other sickness. So far, me too!! I am tired a lot, but it's better now. It's still too early to determine the sex and I can't feel the baby moving yet, but I look forward to experiencing that in the next few weeks. Now that the yucky feelings are over I'm really excited to find out if we're having a boy or a girl. Faiver is convinced that it's a boy, mostly because that's what he wants. It's not surprising, though. I think most new fathers want their first to be a boy. I always said that's what I wanted, too, but now that I'm facing it, I just want the baby to be healthy. Some women have told me they could tell what they were having by week 12...is it weird that I have no clue?? I don't think we find out for another 4 weeks, but I'll ask the doctor about that on Monday. It's an exciting and scary time as my body and mind go through lots of interesting changes (I'm losing my memory!!). As promised, I'll do my best to keep my blog updated...starting with some pictures:
On Monday, Faiver and I went to the OB-GYN for my second appointment. We waited for about an hour and a half before the doctor actually saw me because she was at the hospital delivering someone else's baby. When she did arrive, she told me everything looked normal (yay!) and then we heard the most beautiful sound in the world....our baby's heartbeat! It was so amazing, just this little, fast beating sound. You know, I've been feeling the effects of being pregnant, but it was just amazing to hear something from the little person growing inside me. I very much look forward to the day we can see him or her on an ultrasound!
