Heartbeats are good.

Yesterday we had our second baby appointment. It was much shorter than the first which I appreciated. We got to meet the doctor that will be delivering the baby and she was very friendly, I liked her right away. She asked me some basic questions and then we got to hear the baby's heart beat. It was amazing how loud and strong it was. I loved seeing the baby on the ultrasound last appointment, and really appreciated the confirmation that came with hearing the baby's heartbeat at this appointment. Just knowing that the baby is still there and all is well. It was funny because she would find the heartbeat and then would lose it within a few seconds because the baby was moving all over the place. I have yet to feel the baby move but hope that will come in the next month.

The most common question I get these days?: How am I feeling. I wish I had a better response. But unfortunately the past few weeks have continued to be a little rough. The sickness continues to come and go and though I am not constantly nauseous anymore, I am having some random bouts of vomiting (I am positive you all wanted to know that =) But I guess it is just another reminder to me that the baby is there and that all is well. I am hoping as the next few weeks go by things will get better and my energy level will increase. I wish I could say I have hit that second trimester uber-energy phase, but that has yet to come. I just want to give a shout out to my incredibly patient husband, who continues to love and serve me through some of these rough patches. He made me a dinner of steak and baked potatoes last night (while I was taking a nap) and it was amazing (the doctor ordered that I eat more, so I am trying).

Our appointment next month we will find out the gender of this little one. We'll keep you updated.

  1. Hey Katie - I have been not been able to catch up long enough with you to know that you weren't feeling good again =( So sorry as I know that is hard to have it go on and on as I was also sick until 17 weeks. You wonder if it is ever going to get better! You keep eating as that will help and hang in there! I can't wait to find out what you are having! =)
