First, we are having a BOY! AT 15 weeks I had an ultrasound to check on the subchorionic hemmorahage (which was gone), and while the umbilical cord was in the way, the doctor thought it was a boy. Then at 18 weeks, for my birthday, Dan took me out to lunch and to a visit to Fetal Foto, where it was very obvious it was a boy. I would post the ultrasound pic, but that seems a little weird to post your sons private parts on the internet, even if it is in utero. Just imagine 2 legs making an upside down V, and a very obvious part right in the middle. At 22 weeks I had my second trimester ultrasound with the doctor. Everything looked great, and again we saw a boy. I was relieved that everything checked out; I was feeling a bit nervous now that I am of advanced maternal age.

As far as how I'm feeling, everything this time around is just a bit more. That's what happens when you're 37! I had more morning sickness, more fatigue, more aches. I'm only 25 weeks, but feel like I did when I was a good 5-7 weeks further along. I have sciatic nerve issues for the first time too! But there is still the awesome parts of pregnancy--feeling the baby move and knowing there is a life growing inside.
And a few belly pics. People keep saying I look small, and someone today at church told me they weren't even sure if I was pregnant when they saw me today. Ha! I feel like a whale.
