Continuing the march towards normal proportions, baby's legs now out measure the arms. And, finally, all four limbs have functional joints. Your fetus is squirming and wiggling like crazy down in the womb, though you probably still can't feel the movements.

1. I am not feeling any better now in the second trimester but I try to stay positive and up beat and not complain too much because who likes a complainer right?

2. I hardly ever leave my house because it requires to much energy so me and the boys learn to entertain ourselves indoors.

3. I have a Doc Appointment on Wednesday and we will hopefully find that heartbeat and hear this little stinker for the first time.

4. Somedays I wake up and feel like my belly is getting bigger and other mornings I feel like I have no mind is playing games with me.

5. I already can not sleep at night and I don't know exactly why because there are so many reasons but I usually get to take naps with the boys so that counts for something.

6. I smell everything and usually everything makes me want to throw up.

7. I am not throwing up anymore but somedays wish I were just so I could get the relief that comes afterwards.

8. The heartburn is just ridiculous and I feel so bad for people (like my husband and dad) who have to deal with this ALL the time...I at least will get relief when the baby is born.

9. I am nervous about having another baby and have anxiety about how I am going to handle it but I keep the faith that it will all work out.

10. Chuck comes home this next weekend and it has been a couple of weeks since I saw him so I am curious to hear what he thinks about my belly...he will tell me if it has grown or not because he hasn't seen me on a regular basis.


  1. I'm sorry that you've been so sick! Don't feel bad about complaining, and definitely don't feel bad about laying around and resting, it's tough work growing a baby (especially when you have little ones to entertain). Hope you start to feel better soon!

  2. hang in there girl - remember that a beautiful new addition to your sweet family is worth the trouble! Enjoy your time with chuck and come visit me already!!!!!!

  3. The Joys of being pregnant...gotta love it! Your boys are so cute! Hang in there!
