Well I am about 15 1/2 weeks along and still very sick. I was so hoping it would pass soon but there has been no sign of that happening. I’m still craving tomatoes daily and still walking about a mile and a half every day. I’m hoping that second trimester energy I have been promised by so many will come soon.
I went to the doctor today and had a great check up! The heartbeat was 153. I love hearing that little heartbeat. It brings tears to my eyes and makes the sickness so worth it.
I’m getting very excited to find out the sex of our baby in a couple of weeks! I seriously can’t hardly stand it! I’m so ready to start buying little baby clothes and setting up the nursery. The office is almost cleared out. We still have a little work to do in there, but it is coming along.
Have I told y’all how excited I am to have an October baby? October is my favorite month. We celebrate our anniversary and Ryan’s birthday in October, not to mention Halloween!! I’m a Halloween fanatic. I blame it on my mom because we have always thrown a big Halloween party every year and go all out. It is so fitting that our first child will be an October baby. God’s timing is definitely perfect.
In my next baby update, I will be revealing the gender! What do you think it is?
Cravings: Tomatoes, Grapes, Sugary snacks
Total Weight Gain: 5 lbs.
Chinese Gender Calendar says: Girl (although I’m not all that convinced of it’s accuracy)
Baby Bump: I started showing early – around 10 weeks I had a noticeable bump. It hasn’t grown too much since then.
Heartbeat: 153 per minute
Let the guessing begin!!

I started to get a little more energy around 16 or 17 weeks and only until recently have I started to feel super tired. I'm excited to find out what you are having. We just barely cleaned out the baby's room a couple of weeks ago so it sounds like you've got a good start. October is perfect too…it's my birth month and I'm there with you on Halloween. Hoping you feel better soon!

My morning sickness last until right at 16 weeks. I hope that is the case for you! 🙂
I craved all things tomato with my first pregnancy and I had a boy. I think there is an old wives tale about craving acidic foods like tomato and lemon means your having a boy. Can wait to find out your gender reveal.
Hope you start feeling better soon! Can't wait to hear about the reveal!

The chinese gender calendar was right for my first daughter and wrong for my second daughter (it said boy…and my husband really wanted that boy 🙂 Hope you start feeling better soon!
