At work they call me "Preggo"

14 weeks….I’m now in my 2nd trimester. It does feel better. I have felt a lot better. I still don’t have my energy back yet, but I only feel kind of sick if it has been a while since I’ve eaten. I can’t wait to find out if I’m having a boy or girl. My Dr. appointment this morning went well. We got to hear the heartbeat and he found it really quick today, and while listening you could hear a static scratching sound on the doppler, and the Dr. said that when you hear that, it’s the baby moving. SO CUTE! I have to have an ultrasound next Wednesday to check the length of my cervix, to make sure I’m ok, and we’ll get a peak at the baby. I will only be 15 weeks, but one of my friends told me she found out it was a boy at 15 weeks, so if it is a boy, maybe we’ll be able to see! So I told my mom if she wants to go just in case, she can. I’m excited to see the baby again. I now know how all those pregnant ladies out there feel when everyone else seems to say, “wow, that pregnancy was fast” and the women think, “Holy cow, whatever!! Its been DRAGGING ON FOREVER!” That’s how it feels.
Rob has been so cute, he’ll roll over in bed in the morning and put his hand on my stomach and he always asks me “How’s the baby?” I think once we have an ultrasound where it doesn’t look like a blob of something, it’ll all become more real. I’ve been starting to have the “round ligament pain” in my stomach, and I’ll forget to be careful sometimes and sit down too hard, and it hurts my pelvic region. Hopefully now that I’m feeling better, I can get some energy and start going to the gym a little bit again. I want to start walking and swimming so I can stay strong. I’m really excited for the next couple of weeks when I’m supposed to start to be able to feel a little movement from the baby! My friend, Cami, is due in about 2 weeks, and I’m excited to see her little girl! Then next is Jalee!! Its funny how many people I know that are pregnant! Its nice to not feel “alone” in it.
Last Friday Rob had to work from 7:30pm until 6:30 in the morning! I was so sad. So I went to dinner and rented a movie with my mom. It was really nice to spend some time with her. I had a hard time sleeping, though, because of Rob being gone. I didn’t know exactly when he was coming home, either, so that kept me up too. So Saturday and Sunday we bummed around a lot because we were so tired.
This week following such a hell week last week, has had a decent start, so I hope it continues on that way. And the excitement of my Dr. appointment also helps! I’m glad Rob’s boss is easy going and doesn’t mind Rob missing a little of the morning to go with me too.
I don't have any new tummy pics, I get so tired after work, I just don't get around to it, I'll try to this next week. I just feel fat, so it doesn't look good. Pictures I DO have are from Valentines Day. Rob got me roses, candy, a big stuffed frog, a belly band (I've been wanting one badly, since my pants don't fit anymore), and preggie pops (for morning sickness). Rob's so sweet and he always makes sure I feel special on Valentines day.

Our room in Zion's was small, but really nice. Its an old hotel that had been remodeled.

Danielle, I am so excited for you! I am glad you're feeling better, because being tired and sick when pregnant is NOT fun.

You'll definitely have to announce what you're having, I am excited for you to find out!

I really hope that someday soon, we can get down to St. George to see you two. (Maybe three, by the time we get down there.) :)

Yeah for the second trimester! I am almost into my 3rd and dreading it. It seems like it has gone so quickly this time around for me, but that will all change this trimester - it drags! LOL.

Yeah for the Bella Band! That thing is marvelous. I finally had to give it up last week though and go buys maternity pants - BOO!

Good luck with the ultrasound - that will be so fun to see your little one. Just know if they do give you the sex at 15 weeks - a lot of the times they are wrong cause it is still so early. I have had 4 friends find out that early and have it be wrong in the last year! Haha.

Loving my bella bands STILL at week 30!!

I had my ultrasound with Sky-guy at 15 weeks. They were 80% sure it was a girl, but they had time and kept poking around until he opened up his legs and voila, we all saw a little penis!!! Just don't accept 80% certainty, lol!!
