Snow

I can't believe it actually snowed here on Easter. The snow didn't stick but it was pretty strange to see. I wish it would warm up - I have Spring Fever big time!

I am officially 13 weeks now! It feels so good to be done with the first trimester. Now if only I could stop puking. Does anyone else seem to get sick after taking prenatal vitamins? I have tried taking them at different times of the day, with food, etc. and nothing seems to work. I've starting taking flin.stone vitamins to at least get some folic acid. I will be calling my doctor tomorrow morning to see about getting a different prescription - maybe that will help.

I made my appointment for the gender ultrasound. It is scheduled for May 12. My mom is going to fly up for it since B will still be deployed. I don't know how I am going to hold out until then without having an ultrasound. I am so used to seeing our little one now. I hope that between now and then my doctor will be able to find the heartbeat using the doppler - tilted uterus and all!

I'm not gonna lie. It's a LONG wait. I still have one more week to go and it's killing me! BUT my OB's nurse has been great about letting me have a heartbeat check, which goes a long way to soothing this nervous Mama!

Congrats on the second trimester!

Hooray on the 13 week mark! I'm totally with you on the long wait for the next u/s though. Mine is May 15th. Lots of gals rent a doppler to help, but I refuse too. I don't need anything contributing to my paranoia, LOL!

Congratulations on the 2nd trimester milestone!!! It does feel so good to get past that particular hump.

*I always take my vitamin at night before bed and I have never had a problem.

Wow - 13 weeks already!!! That is awesome. I never did puke, though I was constantly nauseous. I am now 16w2d and my nausea is all but disappeared. I had some yesterday, but that could have been because of all the delectable things I shoved down my throat. :-)

May 12 does seem so far away. UGH!! Hope the time flies by!

Congrats on escaping the first trimester! I gave up the prenatal and just take over the counter folic acid.

YAY for 13 weeks! The wait will suck at times, but I promise that once you get to that point, it will seem like it was just yesterday. Hope things continue to go beautifully! HUGS!

I quite regularly half-puke mine back up- as soon as feel the darn thing on the back of my throat.

I never can figure out whether to get a fresh tablet or just swallow. Foul, but after a trimester and a half it's a lotta extra vitamins...
