I'll be 17 weeks along tomorrow, but this picture was taken this past Sunday at 16 weeks :) So far I'm still fighting headaches, started getting swollen ankles (ick, they hurt!), and the random episodes of morning sickness (and because of this my car is well stocked for the next random episode....).all what I'm experiencing in my second trimester. Learning to eat more is another interesting side of pregnancy, and trying to keep the extra snacks on the healthy side. I am still very tired and have to get to bed by 9:30, but it's not the same exhaustion that I had in the first trimester. So that is the one thing that has gotten better!
Now that I'm showing it's all becoming more real for Jason :) He is great in helping me slow down when I need to, for which I am very grateful! I'm excited to see him as a dad!
Only 3 more weeks until we can find out our baby's gender. We have a girls name picked out (can't tell the name.. sorry!) but we are no where with a boys name. Turns out I'm VERY picky when it comes to a boy name. Very picky.
Other exciting news, my sister in law Stephanie had her 3rd baby on June 13 (yes.. it was a Friday!). She had a little (big) boy! Gavin Ryan Smidt showed up weighing in at 9 lbs 15 oz! He is an exact replica of his big sister Bayley. It's really funny how much they look alike! We got to visit them in the hospital and at their home the other day, and he is just a chill little (big) dude. He is very sweet.. it's weird to think that when my baby is born, Gavin will be 5 months old and could be crawling around! Why do babies stay little for so short of a time?!
Here he is!
