So we have made it to the second trimester! I am so excited! The baby now is about 3 1/2 inches from crown to rump and is moving around like crazy. I went to the doctor last week feeling a little off and worried so I took my mom, aka Nana, with me. The baby and I are both doing great! Everything was fine and I was very happy to hear that. My mom got to see an ultrasound of the baby and see and hear the heartbeat. In the picture above you can see the baby kinda laying on its neck and its hands and face on the right and legs on the left. This is the second ultrasound I have had where the hands have been in front of the face like this. And we have a little ham on our hands! They started the ultrasound and the baby was so cute just laying there wit their hands in their face and as soon as it realised that we were talking about it and looking at it, it started doing flips and dancin! It was the cutest little thing and it already loves the attention. Jack and I are already in big trouble!! haha! I am feeling wonderful. Still a little tired sometimes but I'm not working right now so I try to get as much sleep now as I can because I know this isn't going to last for long. My clothes no longer fit and I need to buy some new ones just haven't yet. I haven't gained any weight but I do feel like I am. I have been feeling the baby move for about two weeks now and one of the first night's I did feel it, Jack want's to feel it move so bad, and he had his hand right over where the baby is and as soon as he did that the baby went crazy moving around. He couldn't feel it of course, but this baby already knew that was him! I go back to the doctor and the specialist on July 30th and I can't wait for this visit cause we should find out what it is! I am kinda convinced its a boy and Jack wants a boy and we have boy names picked out so I don't know what we will do if it is a girl. Which I would love!! And on the right of this page you can see how far along I am and how many days I have left. You can also click on the box and it will tell you what the baby is doing and how it is growing for the week.
On Monday I was super excited to call one of my best friends Rebecca, who I worked with in kindergarten for three years, and tell her I was as pregnant as she was when she told me that she was pregnant with her first daughter, Schella, who is now almost 5. I had been thinking about her all day for some reason so I called her Monday afternoon and left her a message that I had been thinking about her all day and just wanted to see how she was and just to call me back. As soon as I hung up the phone one of my other great friends Robbie ,who I also worked with the same time as Rebecca, called me and told me that Rebecca's mom Joyce had passed away. She had been fighting cancer for a long time and was a wonderful woman. So please keep the Lipschutz/Sprowl family in your prayers this week.
