We have an active baby! We went for our second checkup this past Wednesday, and everything is going well. We decided to go with another clinic, which I liked much better. We got a sonogram to determine a more accurate due date, and heard the heartbeat. I love seeing my little pumpkin on the screen! The tech who was showing us the baby could hardly take a picture, as the baby was so active! Doing flips and moving around. It was so much fun to watch! Hubby says it’s definitely a boy since he/she is so active. We’ll see!
We’re almost through the first trimester. Nausea is getting better, thank God. I will be 12 weeks tomorrow! Just found out I can get a relaxer after the first trimester, so I am super excited! I’m thinking I will just get a texturizer, as it is a little gentler on my hair than a relaxer.
I watched a live birth on babycenter.com the other day, of a mother who gave birth without any medication. She was a trooper! I think she was only in labor for 4 hours. She only pushed a few times, and the baby came out. I was amazed. Although I definitely will be getting an epidural, it was awesome to see her up and moving around after just an hour of giving birth.
Well, that’s all for now. I will update tomorrow. In the meantime, have a fabulous holiday weekend!
