Great bump Powell!

I'm so jealous of all of you that gets to sleep and have lie ins! Every morning my little girl is my alarm clock. I feel exhausted a lot of the time especially running around after her.
Just took her to town and we were only out for 30 minutes and she screamed all the way home. Some things are just not fun!!

Hope everyone is starting to feel better. No news from me, just little kicks every now and then, thought they were strong enough for hubby to feel but he hasn't yet. Still 3 weeks until my next scan! But half way through next week yay! And its my birthday tomorrow - grand old age of 32 yikes!!

Happy early birthday Hann!!

I've been feeling kicks that I thought hubs would be able to feel too, because I swear I can feel them on my hand, but that may be because I can feel them from the inside. He hasn't really been able to feel them yet. I'm exactly 2 weeks from being half way! We're so close!! Has it flown by for you also?

I was the same, thought I could feel from the outside but I must be feeling from the inside, I think by xmas they should feel it though. Its just then them having the patience of sitting there for a while with their hands on your tummy waiting. My DH has little patience for that!!
Yes for me its def flown by, I thought it was because of it being no.2 but maybe not. Having said that it still seems like a long time until tri 3. What week does that start?

Yay for nearly half way! Can't believe it! On Xmas day ill be exactly half way

I had a good sleep too stevensmummy but feel exhausted! That was before I started work!

Haven't felt any kicks although sometimes I do feel like I felt one but never sure if its just a twitchy muscle. Baby was playing hide and seek again yesterday when I fancied another listen. The HB isn't just a whoosh anymore it sounds more stronger but apparently this week the baby's heart muscle is developing some more so maybe that's what it is.


Also have killer indigestion -_-

I've been feeling what I'm assuming is kicks for the past week now. They're still not strong enough for other people to feel, but I know the baby is doing well at least. Also, my bump has been getting noticeably bigger every week.

In fact, I need to go get a new swimming suit today since this size 32 is squeezing me too much. I'm actually gonna skip straight to a 36. I'm thinking maybe going to my summer bikini might be an idea for later, but I might need a new top part soon.

I used to swim competitively until September when I found out about the baby, but now I do it just to stay in shape and because it's supposed to be good for the baby and the delivery.

Hi ladies!

Great bump Powell!

I'm so glad I'm not the only one who's still tired! I keep waiting for that second trimester burst of energy and I still feel the same way I did in first tri minus the morning sickness! Yay! Almost halfway, but for me, this pregnancy is dragging on. I feel like I've been pregnant forever already!

We have our anatomy/anomaly scan tomorrow morning. Even though I hear bubs on the doppler nearly everyday, I still feel nervous, but excited. I was determined to stay team yellow (DH wanted to find out), but DS and DD started asking when they'll know if they're having a brother or sister. I told them we would know in May when the baby's born and DH, of course, said, "But we can find out at our next ultrasound." They got super excited and I told them that I wanted to be surprised. We sat down and took a family vote and baby and I were outnumbered 3-2. I told them the vote didn't matter as I'm the one who's pregnant. Lol. However, seeing how important it is to them, I started caving and came up with a plan. Tomorrow, I'll have my perinatologist write down if it's a boy or girl in a sealed envelope then at my appointment next week, have my OB (who delivered both DS and DD) write them a letter that says:

Dear Christian and Aubrey,

Congratulations! You're going to have a baby ________!

I'll have him sign it, seal it and we're going to give it to the kids on Christmas Eve and let them open it and read it aloud in front of the whole family. Hubs and I still won't find out tomorrow so they'll be the first ones to know. This way, I sort of get my surprise since I still have to wait 12 days to find out and it's a way to involve the kids. As much as I want to be surprised, I think that at their ages (11 and 6), it's important for me to take their feelings into consideration. So, that's our plan. Now that I've accepted we won't be staying on team yellow, I'm excited for our gender reveal! Oh, we'll also record the whole thing and save the letter so we can show bubs one day. Now all this kid needs to do is cooperate at his/her scan tomorrow!
