This past Monday I had my second doctor's appointment with Dr. Wolanski. It was a pretty uneventful one. Everything is looking great. I got to hear the heartbeat again, it's a wonderful sound. I was offered an ultrasound to screen for Downs Syndrome but passed because I'm not at high risk for downs and I'd rather not know at 12 weeks if my baby has downs syndrome. So far I've lost 3 pounds but Dr. W was not worried at all and said I shouldn't even worry about gaining weight I should just eat normally, take my vitamins and exercise. Sweet! According to some calendars, this week (13) marked the beginning of my second trimester but according to others it starts on week 14. Either way, I'm pretty much done with my first trimester...Hallelujah! I'm ready for the "honeymoon period" and of course, finding out if we're having a boy or girl and then getting into nursery mode!
My next appointment will be June 16th, I'll be 16 weeks.
Here is my 13 week belly shot...I'm not showing at all and my clothes aren't even tight. I barely look any bigger than my 6 week picture. I guess it is kind of a blessing in some ways. The belly will come soon enough :)

I'll keep you posted, hopefully my belly will start growing soon and I'll be able to go shopping for fun maternity clothes!
