Second trimester, that is. Or at least it is according to some people. For others it is 13 weeks or 13 weeks and 3 days. I'm going with 12 because it means I don't have to wait any more because I am officially 12 weeks and 1 day!
We had an appointment with the midwife this afternoon, and all looks well with me and baby. She even did a quick (and unexpected) ultrasound to seen Bean. She was wiggling and bouncing around and James made the comment that our kiddo may have a future as a break dancer. For your viewing pleasure:
I think I'm going to start doing a weekly update to give you a rundown of the latest stats. It will encourage me to keep you in the loop. I'll even start doing a belly picture as soon as it is baby belly and not jelly belly.
