Baby number two! 

A few short weeks after moving up to Oregon we were a little surprised to find out that we were pregnant with baby number two! This is our fifth pregnancy due to previous miscarriages, so as usually I was and still am nervous about baby growing and all.
You can just barely see the second line on the first (top) test, 
the second (bottom) test was two days later.

At nine weeks we were able to go in for an ultrasound and saw our baby growing right on track with a beautiful heartbeat of 173 bpm! Official "due date" June 25, 2014!
Measured 9 weeks on the dot.

Just as with Little Jedi I started progesterone suppositories right away and stopped them at twelve weeks. So far everything has been going great! I had only a little bit of nausea here and there first thing in the morning….or any time I coughed haha. Very similar to my pregnancy with Little Jedi, I felt well for the most part which, of course, freaked me out.

As of right now I am 13 weeks and 3 days into the pregnancy which puts me in the second trimester (1/3 done!). I have been visiting family back in California so I will not have an actual appointment till I get back up to Portland…next year. Dada is on his way down to spend Christmas with us as we speak so Tuesday we have an (elective) ultrasound planned to see our baby and (hopefully!) find out the sex! Dada is convinced that this baby is going to be a girl. I have no strong feelings one way or the other, I think I would prefer a second boy but we would be happy with a girl! I have been getting pretty good at guessing the sex of a baby based off of the 'skull theory', so I am leaning towards boy based off the one ultrasound we had but it's really easier to make a guess at 12+ weeks because the baby isn't to squished up then.
Either way it will be great to see how much our baby has grown and see him/her wiggle around!

Baby big head!

Heartbeat 173bpm.

Merry Christmas!
