LOVE the snap-in-the-front onesies.  we had 2 wrap-around w/ ties from petite bateau given to my first-born son, and still treasuring those as they're my favorite and have mostly managed to survive the other 3 as well.  i don't usually get a lot of new things, but this inspired me to maybe look around for a few to NOT pull over those little heads.  i err on the side of diapers and swaddling for a while, as it's cold around here, and i can't manage dressing anyone too nice.  What brand are the snap onesies?

 

is it really second trimester?  some say 12 weeks, some say 14, some of us have brutally long 3rd trimesters... but hoping the fatigue eases up soon.  and so w/ the mama who went w/ doppler.  so much fun to hear the little one puttering about.  not sure if i'm feeling movement or just gas, but hoping this one is more chill then my last (who was like a flopping goldfish from 12 weeks on) and so eager for movement, but also hoping for a less hyper baby!!!

My last one was quite the squirmer, too. I don't think I slept much the last trimester. 

 

This will be my first winter baby, so I guess I won't just get to throw on a onesie and call it a day.

Texas winter here so a onesie could be all that is needed.  I'm just super excited to be where I am.  I feel so blessed right now.  15 weeks, strong heartbeat and I feel great!  I'll start picking up clothes once we find out what we're having.

My due date keeps changing but I'm either on week 13 or 14 right now depending on what date you go by so I am definitely in the 2nd trimester - yay! I'm not as queasy any more but it has been so hot for us that I haven't been able to eat much anyway - lots of salads from the garden (at least this baby is getting good greens). Still tired but I think that has more to do with the heat and having two children 4 and under. ;)  DD2 turns two this weekend and has been on a nap strike for weeks now which hasn't helped the tiredness. The good news is that she is asleep by 6 p.m. most nights! I really miss nap time though.

I love Petit Bateau too. The one I just bought is from Chateau de Sable. http://www.chateaudesable.com. I generally find french baby clothes much more neutral and less garish that the local baby stores here in Singapore where things are very gender specific and kids get decorated like Pinatas.

The Gestational second trimester starts at 13 weeks + 3 days (third at 26 weeks + 6 days), which is the 40 weeks divided equally into three trimesters.

 

The Conceptional second trimester starts at 14 weeks + 5 days (third at 27 weeks + 3 days), which is the true pregnancy weeks (38) divided into three trimesters.
 

 

As I am 12 weeks today, I say carrot.gif

 

I had always heard that 13 was the start of the second. Very interesting!

 

I should be 13 weeks today, so I, too, say banana.gif
