Trimester #2

30 Oct

I am almost 14 weeks pregnant. I have finally started to have more good days than bad (have I mentioned that the days of pregnancy aren’t my finest?). I actually really enjoy the big belly & I especially enjoy feeling the baby move (I can’t wait for that!), it’s the sickness & the extreme fatigue that makes me unpleasant. I’m such a motivated & energetic person naturally, so to suddenly feel like I could sleep for the next 9 months is quite aggrevating. On a positive note… the next few months should be really pleasant & the timing couldn’t be better. I should be feeling pretty incredible through the holidays  🙂

Our date to find out the sex of the baby is Dec. 5… however Brian & I have come up with a little twist to make it extra special without having to wait until the birth to know. We have decided to take a Christmas card with us & have the ultrasound tech write the sex in the card in loo of revealing it to us, & we will sit in front of the tree on Christmas Eve after playing “Santa” & open it together. A nice Christmas surprise for mom & dad… & for the rest of the family, since we’ll get to reveal the secret to everyone on Christmas Day.

I can’t believe that we have officially decided on baby names. Not to say that it won’t change at the last minute… it’s happened before. If the baby is a girl, her name will be Kennedy Reese & if the baby is a boy, Channing Stone.

    That’s a great idea! Yeah, second trimester, when you start feeling like yourself and beginning looking pregnant. I hate the first trimester as well.

    Since we havent officially got to meet, I’m Brandy and I have the pleasure of teaching your daughter sometimes when she comes to 11am service. She is so awesome by the way! I am due May 15th and we find out on December 4th what we are having. That is such a sweet idea about the christmas card. I would be so anxious i would explode, this it our first.

    Anyway I just wanted to say hi and tell you that if I can muster up the patience I might borrow your idea.
