Hello there. So far the second trimester has been a lot better than the first, althought my first trimester was not as bad as some pregnant women. I feel a lot more like myself, although I am still tired often. I guess that is never going to go away as I am told by every mother. I went walking last week and had a really bad sciatic nerve problem. That lasted for a couple of days. When I told my doctor she gave me a look of "Already!?! You are in trouble!" Apparently there is not much that can be done for those flair ups. I just hope they don't happen too often or I will be limping the rest of this pregnancy!
Last Thursday we went to the doctor for our 16 week appointment. Everything went well and got to hear the heartbeat again. Baby peanut's heart is strong. We set up our next ultrasound. We have decided to find out the sex of the baby. I should say Jeremy decided to find out and I didn't have much of a choice. Very opposite of our personalities. Maybe a surprise for the next one. Finding out the sex will definitely make the rest of this pregnancy easier.
Monday, October 1st is the big day. If the baby cooperates we will find out if the little bean is a boy or girl. And I will not repeat what Jeremy said when we left the doctor's office regarding finding out the sex!
What do you think the sex will be? We have heard both from family and friends, although having a boy is winning right now. Jeremy and I have placed bets ourselves.
Hope you are well!
Laura and Jeremy
