I am five months pregnant.
I can’t believe it.
I am feeling really good these days. It is the miracle of the 2nd trimester. I have my energy back, I don’t feel nauseous anymore, and I am really showing now. I tend to get uncomfortable more easily these days. My back will hurt or the ligaments in my stomach will ache. I expect that to only get worse the further along I am.
We had an ultrasound and everything looks good with the baby. Nate and I don’t want to find out the sex of the baby. However, I really don’t like that we can’t change our mind after the ultrasound is over so… We asked the doctor to write down his gender guess and seal it in an envelope for us. The envelope (still sealed!) is sitting on the kitchen counter.
We did the same thing with Grace and opened the envelope in the hospital a few hours after she was born. I love the freedom of being able to change our minds even if we never do.
Nate and I are really struggling with names. He doesn’t like any of my suggestions. I hate all of his suggestions. We kind of stopped talking about it. We have time, right?
I started writing down my Insane Goals for 2012 – The Baby Prep Edition. Holy smokes, it is a long list. The amount of things I want/need to get down in the next 4 months is probably twice as long as my goals for this whole past year. Heaven help me.
Do you have any advice for getting ready for baby number two?
