Bring on the Second Trimester!

Well, I am officially 14 weeks today and I am feeling GREAT!  The sickness has ended and I am not so tired.  I am getting more excited by the day!  I can feel my belly stretching and getting a little harder,but it's not that cute belly yet - so no pictures yet!  I'm at that weird stage of not fitting into things and well, just feeling FAT!  I haven't really gained weight yet, so I am glad about that. I know there will be plenty of time for that at the end - so I'll wait until then.
Peanut (as we affectionately call it for now) - is about the size of a lemon this week. Here below is what it looks like already. I am just amazed by God's design and how intricate and well-developed this little one is already! God is so good! We will find out the sex of the baby at the end of July - so we will keep you posted :o)

I am so glad you are feeling good. The 2nd trimester is the best! It is amazing how the Lord designed it.

Can't wait to hear the gender. Do you and Tim have guesses? Are you taking guesses from the audience? :) What names are on the table? Are you taking suggestions from the audience?? :)

Love ya
Amanda

Amanda - you are too funny :o) I am guessing it's a girl and Tim is guessing it is a boy (but we would both be happy with either :) Anyone can feel free to make a guess though!

We have names just about picked out for either gender - not taking suggestions there :o) But we will announce it when we are for sure!

Love you too dear!

I am glad you are feeling great!! I agree with Amanda the second trimester is so much fun(although I am still in the 2nd trimester!)). I am now feeling our baby move like crazy..I understand your phase right now not fitting into you clothes but yet not looking pregnant either...yeah the fat stage...Glad things are going well though for you. Can't wait to read more posts!!!

How exciting! I can't wait to see you next month!!! I am guessing it is a boy since you were not that sick but that has just been my experience :-)

Yay for trimester #2. I'm glad you're already feeling great.

I remember the feeling fat stage, but hey, if you haven't gained any weight, you can feel good about that. I had to eat every three hours to make the nausea manageable and I was pretty much eating cereal, bread, and other carbs so you can imagine what that did to the scale! But it's so worth it because of the end result.

Can't wait to find out the gender. I loved finding out that surprise and enjoying it for the last half of the pregnancy.

Glad you are feeling better! I'm sure you look adorable and not fat. Looking forward to seeing you soon!
