2nd trimester

Well, boys and girls, I am 14 weeks today. Feel free to applaud. Here's a baby photo....

The kids are horrified to learn from our baby book that Peanut is *peeing* now. "EWWWWWW!" I tried to convince them that it was all sterile and not a big deal, but they remain unconvinced. The baby can also suck it's thumb and make facial expressions. I sometimes, especially at night when I'm in bed, think I feel tiny little stirrings in there...but it's not strong enough to really convince myself yet.

I'm feeling better...I'm not nauseated anymore. In fact, I'm hungry,,,*very* hungry at times. That bone-crushing fatigue is gone. But, I don't feel quite like myself. I feel rather PMS-y the last couple of days. Hope that doesn't does everyone I come in contact with, I'm sure. We've been doing a lot of running around, a lot of eatng on the go, and my diet has not been great. I'm buckling down and adding some more protein and getting back to my big daily salad. On the whole, I'm feeling rather un-pregnant, in fact, what with the first trimester symptoms gone and no baby kicks to report. I have another midwife appointment this Friday and I'm hoping to be able to hear the baby's heartbeat. That would be a nice lift!

Coming up after Turkey Day...a "Day in the Life" of our new and improved school plans, as well as our Advent celebrations. I love Advent, and we have lots of fun traditions in place already, as well as a new one or two to try.

Happy 2nd trimester to the peanut! [and to mom!].

Hope the moodiness goes away for you soon! Have a great Thanksgiving. :)

Awesome. How cute, your childrens' response...about those biological functions! That's all good and well of course.

Enjoy! Have a great Thanksgiving with that beautiful family. EAT, so baby Peanut will do other things too! :-)
