Week 14: Bring on the Sleep...

Hola Everyone,

SUCCESS! Christie finally slept well for the first time in weeks this past weekend!!!...and has been sleeping a little better ever since. Hopefully, this means that the "Legend of the 2nd Trimester" is true...You see, this week marks the start of the 2nd trimester. The "Legend of the 2nd Trimester" goes something like this: Pregnant ladies feel awful to very awful for the first 3 months or so of pregnancy because of no sleep, vomiting (luckily we missed most of this chapter), and headaches. Then, by some hormonal magic, the sleep gets better, energy returns, and the ladies feel better to much better... They also start to grow larger and larger, mostly around the midsection... We haven't experienced the entire Legend, since Christie is just starting this part, but we hope it all comes true. 

Baby continues to grow and is now getting pretty darn heavy... it's 3 1/2 inches long and 1.5 ounces! Crazy huh? We get weekly updates from and it usually compares the baby to some sort of fruit, be it something normal like a blueberry or something unusual like a fig... So, on Wednesday Christie tells me... and I quote "Our baby is a Lemon"... Hmmmm, to me that sounds like our baby is going to have a broken transmission 4 times within the first 4 months... Not cool! Thank goodness babies don't have transmissions. Obviously, what she meant was the our baby is not about the size of a lemon. Which is pretty cool.

Christie is beginning to show just a teeny bit. Just barely... but I'm sure that will change soon enough, again if the Legend isn't a pack of lies...



  1. yay! She's sleeping better!!! So, you're baby's a lemon. That's awesome! 8) When do you find out the sex? Should be pretty soon, right?

    This is exciting you guys. I bet Christie will be all belly very soon. It's weird, almost like it happens overnight or at least, over a weekend she will probably notice a growth spurt. I'm not going to guess as of right now, but I would like to know the approximate conception date and then I'll take my best guess!
