Hello Second Trimester!

I am officially beginning the second trimester today!

I know I already did a pregnancy post this week, but I figured this was a pretty momentous occasion, and it deserves it's own post (with some other things mixed in).

My uterus sure went through a growth spurt this week. I don't think I'm really showing much more than I was, but when I reach down and touch my lower stomach where I can feel my uterus, it's definitely bigger.

It was feeling like a rather fat banana before - kind of long, with a bulge in the middle. I was actually getting worried about it, because it hadn't seemed to be doing much growing for a couple weeks.

But yesterday, after not feeling it for a couple days, I reached down to put my hand over my uterus, and all of a sudden it was way bigger! It feels like a very large grapefruit or a very small melon now. It's kind of cool.

And if the uterus is growing, the baby is growing, so that makes me happy!

This weekend my sister and I are off for to visit my dear friend, Hazel, and her family. You'll remember we went to visit them last fall, and we thought it was high time we went again!

We're looking forward to a weekend of games, a movie night, story writing and reading, fellowship, and whatever else they may have up their sleeves! We're leaving today (so if some of you don't get a return e-mail from me this weekend, that's why).

In other news, I woke up this morning to find this on my kitchen table:



My wonderful sister got me a baby gift! She came into the house when she dropped off her luggage this morning (since I'm picking her up at work later), while I was still sleeping. Sneaky, Rae, sneaky . . .

My sister is so sweet - ever since she found out she's going to be an aunt she's been so excited. When she comes over she walks up and pats my stomach and says "How's baby?" It makes me happy that she's so excited too.

But I can't open the baby gift until my sister and Derek are here with me, which won't be until Sunday or Monday. So it's just sitting there, taunting me. I'll let you know what she got us next week!

I hope you all have a nice, relaxing weekend!

Wow, that's crazy that you're already entering into the second trimester! I always feel like that first one goes by so quickly, but probably because we don't hear about it until week 9-10 for most bloggers!
