Hello 2nd Trimester!

14 weeks officially starts the 2nd trimester. I can't believe I made it, but I am here. I am *HOPING* I can feel better SOON. I told the doctor about my issues with abdominal pain and all the pulling and stretching I have been feeling. She thinks it's all gastrointestinal. So I am going to try a few things and see what happens.

As far as the baby, things are great. Heartbeat was 160 beats per minute. If I remember correctly, I think DS was right around there. I think I am having a boy, so that would make sense. I think girls tend to run higher (maybe 180 or so--anyone out there confirm that for me?). And as for my weight....well I am SO EXCITED!!!!!!!

I got on our home scales this morning and it was the same first 3 digits that it was the last time I went to the doctor. I couldn't remember the tenths. By the time I got to the doctor (after breakfast, a snack, and lunch) I had only gained a POUND!!!!! This means I only gained 7# my first trimester. Considering I gained 20+ with DS, this is HUGE!!! WOO HOO!!!!! I have managed to stay OUT of the Halloween candy except for one fun size pack of Skittles. I am so darn excited.

My mom had the balls to ask me how much weight I had gained. I told her, don't you know you should NEVER ask a pregnant woman that question!??! She said, well I always thought a pregnant woman should be proud of the weight she gained. Let me tell you, I was NOT proud of the 55# I gained with DS. NOT. AT. ALL. UGH. I hope she doesn't ask me again! That's one annoying question.

I had so many other things I wanted to blog about, but they are escaping me now. And dinner is in the oven so I am outta here. Have a great night and a wonderful Tuesday!

WOW - I can't believe you are already at 14 weeks - that is soooo exciting! So when is your official due date again?

Is DS getting excited yet? He is going to be a great big brother!

Way to go on the 7 pounds - I hope that when I get preggo I can stay focused and disciplined. I'm already thinking about how I will cut back my weight lifting and such.......when I finally get pregnant I'll do whatever it takes to keep the little one around!

Congrats and don't ya wanna know what you're having??? (((hint~hint)))
