Second trimester what. UP. I figure it's about time to get to non-sickness pregnancy related things. I finally have something to show for the last 14 weeks of my life and I'm gonna flaunt this bump as much and as often as I can. It's most likely the last bump I'll ever rock, so I'm going to really try to relax and enjoy every nuance of this pregnancy.
I'm starting to actually feel really good. I don't feel sick at all anymore, but I'm still dealing with the non stop exhaustion. I'm learning to just push through it and keep on moving. Occasionally I have enough energy to dance, but I always pay for it later.
I went in for my monthly appointment on Monday, and I don't know what it is, but I'm always really nervous the day of the appointment right up until I hear the baby's heartbeat. It's like all of a sudden the fear of losing the baby is so tangible, I'm almost convinced that it's inevitable. So of course at this particular appointment, it took the midwife a little longer than usual to find baby's heartbeat. But find it she did and there's really no greater sound in the world than the sound of your baby's heartbeat. It's beautiful.
And then I canceled our gender scan . Yup. It's done. We're not finding out if this baby is a guy or a gal until their grand entrance. We're stoked about it. I'm surprised at how OK we are with waiting. Maybe it's because this pregnancy is already flying by, but it just doesn't seem like a big deal to wait. The only thing different I'd be doing if I knew what the baby was going to be would be sewing up some blankets and if it's a girl, some little baby dresses. BUT all that will just have to wait until March. The thrill of the wait is really what's got me super excited about this pregnancy. It's going to be so much fun.
So that's the bumpdate and now I need your brains. This is my second pregnancy as a blogger, but my first pregnancy as a blogger that actually has followers so I need your opinions and ideas. What would you like to see on the blog as far as pregnancy and baby related things go? Maternity style tips and ideas? Giveaways? Baby product reviews and giveaways? Should I bring back cloth diaper posts? Tell me anything and everything you'd like me to write about and I'm on it. I'm thrilled to share this journey with you all, but I also don't want to do pregnancy overkill. Let me know your thoughts, ya'll!
