A few people have asked how this pregnancy is going. So far, it’s going fairly well.
I’m 14 weeks now – and thankful to be in the second trimester. The morning sickness has abated some, but unfortunately, the food aversions and gagging have taken its place with a vengeance. I was really concerned about weight gain at the beginning, but after weighing myself the other day, I don’t think I have to worry for a while. I’ve really struggled to find foods that sound and taste good that are still healthy. Protein has been my biggest aversion.
Despite only gaining a little bit of weight (somewhere between 5 and 8 pounds – not too bad), I’m pretty big already. Many people have asked me if I’m expecting twins, but after 3 ultrasounds, I doubt we’ll see a second baby by now. I guess God just made me to get big early on in my pregnancies.
Stephen and I still haven’t decided whether or not to find out the gender of this baby. I have two more ultrasounds – one next week (at 15.5 weeks) and then the “big one” at 18 or so weeks. We’d love to have the surprise at delivery, but the planning side of me really wants to know. I guess if baby really isn’t modest, we might get a look next week, but I’m not planning on being able to find out. We’ll see.
Here’s a picture that Samuel took yesterday morning of me.
