Wow, I really like the 2nd trimester better than the 1st. I have felt so much better. I still have heartburn, but the constant nausea is gone. I am having to eat every 2 or 3 hours to feel my best, but usually a yogurt, string cheese, or piece of fruit is enough for between meals. And I have only gained a pound and a half. Hooray!
I have had a few people ask me how things are going with my Thyroid. My levels are getting checked every four weeks by my Endocrinologist, plus my Obgyn tests my levels everytime he does blood work. My levels have had to be adjusted 3 times, but I think my current dose is working well for now.
I had my second appointment with my Obgyn on Friday and he said everything is looking great. Brian couldn't come so my sweet friend Kiera came. We got to hear the baby's heartbeat, between 120-140 beats per minute. I called my mom so she could hear it too and of course she cried. According to old wives' tales the heartbeat is not on the fast end, so it could mean a boy, but really who knows. We have an appointment for Dec. 8 for my next ultrasound, and to find out what we are having! I am so excited. Brian is convinced it's a boy, but I'm only sure that it's a baby.
