1 down, 2 to go

Well I have one trimester under my belt - or should I say under my elastic waistbands :-) 2 more trimesters to go. If they go as fast as the first it will be here before you know it.
I had my appointment today with my midwife and we took another peek at God's perfect little plan. Looks like we have a wild one on our hands!! The baby was flipping all over the place and kicking and hitting and it's little mouth was opening and closing - it really looked like one of Olivia's temper tantrums, but on a smaller scale and much quieter ;-) It's just so reassuring to see the little cashew doing so great. My midwife did the ultrasound, which she isn't too familiar with, but as far as she could see the other sac is pretty much gone and she doesn't see the implantation bleeding. She said that she doesn't know how to push the buttons on the u/s machine to get a better quality picture, but as far as she could see they were going away all on their own as anticipated. She also couldn't figure out how to get the sound or the beats per minute for the heart, but we could see it beating so that's all that matters. I should have a heart rate at the next appointment - I know some of you are trying to determine the gender based off of this, so sorry I couldn't provide you with more information - you'll have to just wait another 4 weeks :-)

Thanks so much for all your prayers and thanks in advance for your continued prayer - I know it's working - you're the best!!

Jen just has girl on the brain! As a matter of fact - did you say Wyatt was going to be a boy? Um, SHE has an extra part :-)
