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!!
