The beginning of the 2nd trimester & Sadie's big day at the pool

14 weeks


With so many friends and family out of town, we thought this would be a good way to let others stay in tune with our baby adventure. I will try to post weekly blogs, so check back often. I wanted to set this blog up a long time ago. Sorry!
I am in my 16th week now. Time has flown by!

We go for the 16 week appointment on Thursday. Hopefully there will be a little less drama this time. When we went for our 12 week the doctor told us we could possibly be having twins! You should have seen our faces! We were able to get an ultrasound an hour later and found out that we are just having one bambino. One is enough for us for now. While we were waiting for the ultrasound, Jeremy turns to me and says, "Babe, you can't have twins. You are small and you will have the worst stretch marks!" Very comforting words, honey! I will try to post a scan of the ultrasound sometime soon. The scanner doesn't pick it up very well. At the time the baby was not even 2 inches long and we could see a hand and the spine.
Ultrasounds are fascinating!

As much as I may not want to, I will try to take pictures of me and the baby bump. Posted is me at about 14 weeks (with a tight shirt to help the image), the very beginning of my "bump". To me it looks more like a roll, but every day it is becoming more of a bump.

Also above is last Saturday's big day for our first child, Sadie Mae. We took her to a local park that opens their pool up right after Labor Day for dogs. It was a riot! At minimum there were about 50 dogs in the pool, outside the pool and trying to decide if they wanted to get in the pool. Sadie loves to swim so she jumped right in with her dad!

Stay tuned for an exciting baby adventure!

With much love,
Laura and Jeremy
