I'm officially hitting my second trimester today, but sometimes it still just doesn't feel real!
I am feeling really good still, heartburn at night, and peeing constantly now, but other than those two irritants, I'm great.
I finally told my mom I'm pregnant. She is not happy at all. She took the liberty of telling my father, who is now not speaking to me because I am "ruining my life". I expected this, though, so no real big deal. My mom is still talking to me, even though she isn't happy, and I have explained my birth plans. She is in total agreement that a UC is the best and safest way to go. I consider myself lucky to not be getting any grief on that.
We have decided to have an ultrasound done (August 9th) because we are selfish and want to know the sex. We were lucky to find a place just a couple hours from here that doesn't require any actual proof of prenatal care. I just had to lie and say I was seeing on OB. I have no problems lying.
I have been feeling my first flutters this week, and thats really cool. A strange thumping maybe a quarter inch to my left of my belly button.
I almost have my nb diaper stash completed; I just need a few more covers, and of course, I would love some more wool. I have also really splurged on carriers this month... I have bought a hotsling, a Mei Tai Baby zippy and a BabyHawk, and I have a KKACP pending right now.
Other than clothes and a carseat, there is really nothing else we want or need for this babe.
