2nd Trimester!!

Yippee!! We are officially in our second trimester as of today! Woo hoo!! It is very exciting--may all the sickness be behind me! We go to the doctor twice this week. One for our screening, which is tomorrow. This will determine the likelihood of any genetic abnormalities such as Down Syndrome. Based on those results we will decide if amniocentesis is needed. Thursday we go back for our 12 week checkup. I'm pretty sure we will get to hear the heartbeat for the first time--we have seen it, but at 8 weeks, its too early to hear. So we're super excited about that! Wish us luck--I'm a bit nervous about the screening.
By the way...got some maternity clothes yesterday! Yaaay! None of my pants were fitting anymore, I'm talking not even zipping up part of the way. I got a few pair of jeans and some work pants--hallelujah!

Yay!! Hoping you have a sick-free 2nd and 3rd trimester! Enjoy the maternity clothes....I totally miss mine. They are SO comfortable. You can't beat elastic waist pants :-)
