I found out that we were expecting on February 21, 2014. It was a little early to take a test so the line was pretty faint. So I took another 2 days later with no doubt! We were SO excited!!
The fun part about finding out that I was expecting is that my sister had just found out she was expecting her 2nd a few weeks earlier. She had already told our parents her news, but we kept my secret until Quinn and I visited the first weekend in March. We surprised them with matching Big Sister shirts! We told both sets of grandparents that weekend. Their faces were priceless!
We had our first appointment and chance to see the butter bean on March 25th. Our official due date is October 28th, 2014.
Of course nothing is official until it is Facebook official:) Quinn did great posing for our picture, and we made our announcement on April 15th.
You can see there was a little change in the size of the baby bump over the month:) We already had a girl name, but we are still working on the middle name. We are going to call her Hunter, and we are hoping to have a middle name soon!! This second trimester has given me lots of energy. I have been in a serious nesting phase over the past month! I keep rearranging the house, and I'm so excited about planning the nursery. I've gotten some amazing deals on some mom swaps and craigslist to help with creating my idea for the nursery. Since we just moved back into our house in March, I've also been rearranging the house and trying to get it organized. I'm so excited that my summer break has finally started so that I can devote my time to getting everything together, and, hopefully, I will be able to shut my mind off;) Our 20 week anatomy appointment was last week, and everything looked great! It is still a girl:) I started feeling Quinn early, but I have really felt Hunter as much. I like to think that means that she is going to be a very calm baby:) I started feeling a little movement around 19 weeks, but that has definitely picked up! I'm enjoying all the little kicks and movements..for now:) I don't know where the time is going. I'm still in shock that I'm halfway through the pregnancy. So far, I don't really have any specific cravings. I've been doing some late night baking to keep me full until morning. Banana muffins, banana/strawberry bread, and blueberry bread have been some favorites. I've had some fresh local peaches the past couple of weeks that made me really excited too.
