I love the question of how far along I am and to see every one's reaction when I say 14 weeks. "You're ONLY 3 1/2 months....wow, you look further along than that". Hey thanks! Just what I wanted to hear "you're a fat @$$". Actually, it really doesn't bother me...I think it's funny. My cousin Lindsay is 6 1/2 months pregnant and her belly is as big as mine. (But I was prepared for that to happen because she already has a 1 year old and never looked pregnant with Sophie).
Now people are starting to say they think I'm having a girl. Mick Frede ~ who is "never wrong" thinks it's a girl. My mom's friend who is an OB nurse for 20+ years thinks it's a girl. I think because my belly is round and wide, that it's a girl. But we find out in 17 days!!!!! Can. Not. Wait.
So I'm 14 weeks, and by some books, I just started my second trimester (however I go by the books that say you start your second trimester starting week 13). It's a nice relief to be officially in my second trimester. I know my chances for a miscarriage now are very, very low. With all of my doctor appointments, I know that my baby is growing perfectly and has a very low chance for any genetic disorders and has all it's vital organs that look and measure right on schedule, according to the NT screening tests.
I'm finally feeling better. I think (and hope) my sickness is gone...although I had an "episode" last week that involved dry heaving in the kitchen sink....yummy. But since then, my energy seems to be back (although I get exhausted easily and take a nap at any chance I get). So cheers to the second trimester of feeling good and sporting a cute baby bump before I turn in to the Pillsbury Dough Girl.
I will post a picture of my bare belly but it's for your eyes only...because it's repulsive. But whatever, it's the one time in my life I can show people my bare belly. Feel free to comment with your guess of if baby French is a boy or girl...you will find out in a couple weeks :)
