14 Weeks!

Sorry this is a little late.  You know how I am about blogging, hehe.  Always behind or not at all.  Baby is doing wonderful, growing every day.  I'm pretty sure I woke up one morning with an even bigger belly than in this photo.  

My next appointment is Sept. 6th.  I will be 17 weeks then and really hope to find out what we are having!

Second Trimester

 Me at 12.5 weeks

Today I officially entered the second trimester of pregnancy...14 weeks!  I am very excited about what this trimester holds.  I look forward to being sick less, finally feeling Baby's movements (Baby has been kicking and moving around for a while, with tiny arms and legs too small for me to feel), and having a more pregnant belly versus a bulge. :D

My most asked question is:  Do you want to find out what you are having?  YES!  I want to be as prepared as possible for this first one.  Though I think being surprised at birth could be fun, but maybe down the road after we have had one of each and will be prepared for either.  

The next question is:  When will you find out what you are having?  My first appointment is the first part of September.  It is with a new doctor, so I'm not sure if he will try to determine the gender or not.  I sure hope so!

I have to say, entering this second trimester provides such a relief for me.  I have been anxious about the baby's health nearly the whole pregnancy.  I had a couple scares, but I am amazed at the mercy the Lord has shown us with the baby.  Please keep us in your prayers!  They are much appreciated.
