Best Moment this week: Beginning the second trimester! 

 

I haven't been as faithful to updating this blog as I would like to be. Hopefully that will change as my baby (and belly) grow! Here it is already... the second trimester! What a blessing! I am already feeling huge... but I know this is nothing compared to what lies ahead! My goal now that I have a lot more energy, is to walk at least a mile a day around our neighborhood. I stay active at work teaching little ones, but I've heard that continuing healthy exercise during pregnancy will help in labor and delivery.

 

Josh and I were so amazed at the detail we could see at our last ultrasound (10 weeks)! The profile was already there and the baby was moving around and wiggling it's little feet. Such a cutie already! We go back next week for another one, when I'll be 14 weeks, 4 days. I have heard of people finding out the gender at this appointment, but we were told it would be two more appointments (19 weeks) until we would know. We shall see! :) We have no preference. We are only praying for a healthy little girl or boy. Although, I have been accidentally referring to it as a "he" lately...

 

Here is the video from our 10 week ultrasound. And yes, I chopped off those stringy, dead ends! :)
