Week 15

What a wonderful week it's been!  First, John and I were in Columbia, and I think I felt our baby move!!!!  I've tried to be very observant of the feelings I have in my belly.  Most are high, but this one was a low movement.  So I'll just continue to believe that it was the first time I felt our baby (Saturday, March 13).  :) 
We went to the doctor yesterday for a routine check up.  John came in hopes of hearing the heart beat (for the first time!).  That was the first thing the doctor did.  When the nurse put the doppler on, she kept it in one position for a minute.  I asked, "Is that the heart beat?"  I had no idea!   It sounded so different.  It was so loud!!  It was like music to my ears.  John wished he had recorded it with his phone so he could listen to it over and over again.  How precious!!  The sound really was so sweet...
In about 3 weeks we'll find out the sex of our little one.  This will also be the first what an amazing experience we have to look forward to!  Getting to see our sweet baby is going to be amazing. 
Other things going on...John and I have put our house on the market.  We are hoping for a buyer before July.  That'll give us time to get out, settled, and ready for our babies arrival!  Praying for God's will...

Week 14

YAY!  The start of the second trimester!  What a milestone it seems!  John and I and baby are doing great!  I'm still feeling pretty good.  I have spurts of nausea, but I'm definitely better than I was.  What a blessing to be feeling better!  I'm also showing!  It may not be to everyone, but for people that know I'm pregnant, I think a baby belly is visible.  :)  I went shopping for maternity clothes with my mom last week.  I'm definitely not ready for maternity pants, but we did find a shirt.  I still have some growing to do before I can fit into most maternity clothes.  Can't wait for that time!!
I'm able to eat a larger variety of food which is also exciting.  (no more cheese toast for dinner!)  John and I have been taking pictures every week of my belly.  When I'm comfortable enough to show my bare belly, I'll post some pictures!  I'm usually not a fan of midriff pics! 
We go to the doctor March 16 for a routine check up.  I hope this time John gets to hear the heart beat!  Hopefully it'll be stronger and louder so we can really hear our little one.  April 7 we'll find out the sex.  That is so exciting!
