OK, so tomorrow I officially enter the 2nd trimester!!!! YAY YAY YAY!!!

I still have those fears that something has happened and I won't hear the heartbeat at the next appt. but my belly is growing and I still have nausea!! So while that really sucks at least it gives me something to hold onto!!!

So I guess I will officially be adding my ticker tomorrow. It feels right and I just didn't want to add it too soon for whatever dumb reason, but there it is!

Also, we've told our kids about the new baby!!! They are soooo excited. My son asked if it was "for real" this time!! How heartbreaking! I so want to bring home this baby! I hate to think of my kids worrying about me.

Little Bella took the m/c the hardest. She's in kindergarten and told her teacher back in October that she was worried about her mom cause I was going to have a baby but I'm not anymore! Her teacher's mother works with me and that's how I found out!!! I don't want her to have to worry about this one!! I just want a nice round belly that the kids can see and know that all is going well!!

Anyhow, they have been busy telling everybody and we officially came out to our parents over the Easter weekend. They were all happy and very interested in the whole story!!

I'm out of town at a conference this week and went to Walmart and bought a copy of What to Expect When YOur Expecting and a pair of booties for the baby!! I've really been holding off buying anything just cause I am so worried. But I guess I need to get comfortable and love this baby as much as I can!!! It will hurt just the same I guess, but I don't want to think that way anymore!!

For my birthday all I want is a healthy baby. The baby is due on my b-day....Oct 18!!!

I am so happy for you that you made it to the 2nd trimester milestone!! That is such a relief - I know. I know when I just made it to the 16 week milestone it was a wonderful feeling. I noticed your ticker is up! I know you have been through a lot and you deserve a happy, healthy, strees free pregnancy from here on out!!

That's great news! This baby has overcome so much to be here and I know how nerve wrecking it is to want to buy things, but fear it at the same time. Hang in there...and welcome to the 2nd trimester!
Thank you Claire1977 for my adorable siggy
For the special little one in your life!

congratulations on reaching the 2nd trimester Jennifer! I know when I reached the 13w mark, I started feeling a lot more confident about my chances of taking a baby home from the hospital in October!

Gabs original due date was the 19th ...... then changed to the 12th..... but then she arrived on the 26th anyway lol
