So far this pregnancy has been a cake walk compared to when I was pregnant with Leah. I'm feeling much better now that I'm in my second trimester (just hit 14 weeks). This is a surprise to me, because when I was pregnant with Leah my second trimester happened to be when I was the most sick. I'm just counting my blessings that I felt much worse during the first trimester and am hoping for clear skies, as far as the nausea clouds go, for the rest of the pregnancy.
Matt and I are really excited for this baby. Leah is REALLY excited for this baby. She's been very excited to hear the baby's heartbeat and even makes this cute whooshing sound when she is asked what it sounds like. I think she's actually happy to have a baby around. Leah has always been so good around babies and so interested in them. Not that I expect all to be perfect when the baby comes, I'm sure there will be some adjustment period, but I think Leah has a great personality to deal with this huge change that's coming up.
So, my next appointment is September 16 (happy birthday Grandma!) and then just 4 short weeks after that, we'll be able to have the big 20 week ultrasound! I'm really hoping for a girl. This baby is due March 7, Leah's birthday is April 16... think of all the money saved on clothes! Please hope for a girl with me... please, please, please.
Thanks for all your well wishes! Things are going great around the Quinney Household.
