1 down 2 to go

I'm officially in my 2nd trimester now. It has just flown by for us. We can't wait to find out what we are having withing the next 5-6 weeks. A lot of people say that once you get into the 2nd trimester the sickness goes away and you start feeling more energy. Well, at this point I am still EXTREMELY tired. I feel like I need like 5 naps a day! As for being sick. Its very off and on still. I think it has improved but not a ton yet. I look forward to it improving more though.
I don't think that I have started to show yet. Steve thinks I have though. He said he can tell a differnce and we can both tell my stomach is harder. I am sure that is not my abs starting to show through, it must be the baby :)
I love all the changes happening to my body. Really, most of them are not the most pleasant but what makes me so happy is knowing its because of a little baby inside. I can't wait to be a Mom. I have become increasingly more scared as the weeks have gone by. I don't know what I am doing. I am very nervouse I will do everything wrong, but at least I have a lot of Mom's around me to help me through it all and I am glad I have Steve to be there with me as well. He will be such a cute Dad. I already know this. I knew it from the first time I saw him interact with my nieces. They absolutely ADORE him. Honestly, I used to be their favorite.. I used to be the one they prayed for at night. Not anymore, but its ok because its now Steve who took my place. There isn't a better person I could think of to take my place.
I still fit in all my clothes.. well not really. They are all too big and are falling off me all the time. Its quite annoying, but hey it menas I am losing weight and I am ok with that I know the baby is getting enough nutrients even with me losing weight. I have no doubt I will have a healthy, good sized baby even if I lose weight.

Seems like our life right now is just revolving around preparing for the baby that I haven't eveen blogged about Steve's surgery and our birthdays we both had last month. I wil have to update with that soon.

Oh How I Missed You, Food!

So you know I was trying to lose weight in January. Well, then this little thing called "getting pregnant" happened. No not a little thing, it s huge thing :) So anyways,I stopped Dieting, but have continued to eat pretty healthy. I haven't worked out a lot like they suggest but I have taken the stairs more and parked farther away from things so that counts right?
Well, since January 4Th I have now LOST 23 lbs. I know, I know you aren't really supposed to lose weight when you are pregnant. Well, I think since I am already overweight Its OK to lose a little still. Steve is worried. He thinks that is too much, but really when all I could eat for most of my pregnancy so far is Pickles.. anyone is bound to lose weight. I have now gained my appetite back. So I am sure, I won't be losing too much more weight. So Steve, don't worry.. you can relax I am now eating once least for now. I really missed food.

So, an update with the pregnancy.

In the begining of this pregnancy my Dr had a concern that the baby was not growing in the center of my uterus. That is was actually growing in the corner which is bad. So they have been really watching this. Today was my 5th ultrasound because all the others, the baby was still too small and they couldn't tell for sure. Great news the baby has grown ( to the size of a Kumquat, actually) and they can see it is perfectly center now and no worries at all. The heartbeat was strong.. 180 to be exact. That scared me a little as the last ultrasound it was only 147. But they said 180 is good.. so I am happy as can be. We even got to see the baby moving around. Such a squirmer. It even looked like it waived to us with it's little nubs :) Bliss I tell ya!
Today was the first ultrasound that I actually bawled at. The others I had a few tears but this one, for some reason just really hit me. I couldn't believe that little baby in there is now looking like a real baby. Its amazing how quickly they grow. I am so blessed and greatful that I get this opportunity to experience being pregnant. I hope and pray it continues to go well. I just can't wait to be a mother and to see Steve as a father. He will be so good, I already know that.
Today I realized just how lucky we are. We truly are blessed to have gone through the struggle we did trying to get pregnant. Its perfect now..even with the sickness, and the other fun things that come along with pregnancy.. I don't care. Bring it all on.

Everything is just perfect!
