1) What is your favourite part about being in the second trimester?
The regular reassurance that our little monkey is doing well. Feeling his movements several times a day, as well as seeing him on ultrasound and hearing his heartbeat on doppler.


2) What "pregnancy grumbles" have followed you from the first trimester and/or emerged in the second trimester?
I can't seem to shake nausea and vomiting. The best I've ever done is gone just over two weeks without being sick.


3) What is your favourite item in your "baby stash"?
It hasn't even arrived yet, but I ordered this bedding set after receiving the samples I ordered: http://www.babysupermall.com/main/products/coc/coc7035-830.html. I also ordered the matching wallpaper border, lamp, and mobile:).


4) What worries you most, at the moment, about preparing for baby?
At the moment, I'm stressed about having to already decide which daycare centre we may like to use once I return to work. There is a shortage of daycare for infants under 18 months, so we pretty much need to get on waitng lists now...but we're still not sure which style of daycare we would prefer, if I want to go back to work part time or full time, etc.


5) What's the best piece of advice you recently received?
We got so much great advice and information from a "Bringing Home Baby" course that we recently took, but perhaps the single best piece of advice was a way to respond to people who give you a hard time about the way you care for your child, your parenting decisions, etc. That was "this is working really well for our family right now."

1) What is your favourite part about being in the second trimester? Just feeling good in general, baby kicks and a growing belly.

2) What "pregnancy grumbles" have followed you from the first trimester and/or emerged in the second trimester? None from the first trimester have followed me since I felt good for the most part....Grumbles since...very dry skin and stuffy nose

3) What is your favourite item in your "baby stash"? My crib and bedding, neither of which we have yet, lol

4) What worries you most, at the moment, about preparing for baby? Employment after and daycare

5) What's the best piece of advice you recently received? I havent received good advice, mostly annoying advice...but me and a co-worker had a wonderful talk about breastfeeding including the ups and downs of it and she said she thinks its "total goddess work to breastfeed"

Hi everyone!! We found out we are officially on TEAM PINK!! Little Kathleen Louise is on her way! Both my sister-in-laws have had girls and are now done having children so they want to give us all their clothes and toys so I think our little girl will be well supplied with those items.

1) What is your favourite part about being in the second trimester? I love looking more pregnant and finding out the gender was great! We are so excited to have a healthy little girl on the way. Nausea and gagging are still here along with heartburn but as long as the baby is healthy I am okay.

2) What "pregnancy grumbles" have followed you from the first trimester and/or emerged in the second trimester? Along with the nausea and heartburn I am doing great and so happy to have a healthy baby!

3) What is your favourite item in your "baby stash"? I love the dresser I got at IKEA and it was fun putting some of the clothes I have been collecting into the dresser.

4) What worries you most, at the moment, about preparing for baby? Looking at the daycare centers and choosing the right one.

5) What's the best piece of advice you recently received? I think getting things ready for the baby now instead of waiting. This way by June I can just relax and wait for her to arrive. Shower will be in early-May so I have enough time to get the nursery ready.

We have our names selected though I think I'm the only Team Green that is in the 2nd trimester group. We are going in with two names from each sex and decide when we meet the baby. I am very much leaning towards Emma over Bianca though to honor my great-grandmother. :)

Emma Lucille Jean
~~Emma is my great-grandmothers name

Bianca Lucille Jean
~~We just like Bianca a lot

~~We both have a paternal grandmother named Lucille and Jean is my middle name. Two middle names is tradition in my DH's family.

Beau Rheal Todd
Maxim Rheal Todd
~~Rheal is DH's grandfather name and Todd is DH's middle name.

And no home birth for me....even if my asshat midwife hadnt turned out to be an asshat and has led me to be stuck with a doc....I still would have gone to the hospital.
