Pregnancy Week 14 - Baby #2

Hello there 2nd trimester! It feels wonderful having energy again! I can actually do things now like chase my toddler around. For two and half months I had absolutely no energy at all and now that I landed a new job in Portland and we are moving to Vancouver I need all the energy I can get to pack. Tuesday was a pretty slow day for me energy wise. I ended up taking a nice long nap that was well needed. I blame it on the weather. It has been absolutely fugly in Washington the past few days; gray skies and rain, rain, rain that just won't go away. Where did the eighty degree weather and sunshine go? Please come back! I need some sunshine in my life! Other than that I have been feeling great with the exception of headaches. :] No more morning sickness, no more being queasy unless I smell something unpleasant, and no back pain. I have; however, been experiencing some Braxton Hicks contractions. =/ When I do have them I either opt to take a warm shower or bath, go for a walk with Amari, or lay down and hope they pass. I don't remember having them until I was at least 30 weeks along with Amari and I did tell my midwife about them at my last check-up. We also talked about whether or not I would be able to go for a VBAC over a scheduled C-section. My next appointment is on June 5th and I meet with my Obstetritionist to see if a VBAC is an option. I'm crossing my fingers and hoping that it's a yes. :] Food craving wise I still want peaches (I finally found them at Jay's Fruit Stand), V8 juice, and hot spicy food. Salad is delicious to me too. I can't get enough of water with lemon either. I am hoping I'm not dehydrated because it is all I want to drink besides V8 juice and tea. For fun, I took a gender prediction test via old wives tale online and it predicted that Little Bean is a boy based off my cravings and tiny bump but... I think it's girl. In all the dreams that I've had it's a girl. ;D I want a girl because I would love to have pink, bows, and dresses in my life but if it's another boy I would still be happy. =] So far Little Bean is 3.4 inches tall, weighs 1.5 ounces, and is the size of the lemon. Baby is getting big!

Boy or girl?
