Baby Nielsen #2 is due to arrive around March 5. I'm almost 18 weeks along, and I've been feeling great. I was a little emotionally off-my-rocker for the first trimester (poor Ryan!), but I've regained a lot of energy and am loving this stage of the pregnancy. I am blessed to have had such nice pregnancies so far!
This morning I was sitting on the couch with Trenton right after he woke up, and I felt the baby move! I couldn't believe I recognized it this early, since last time it took me FOREVER to realize that those little flutters were baby movements. I was elated to feel the baby—Let the bonding begin! (And I instantly thought, "Man, it's about time I posted this on the blog!")
Trenton and the new baby will be 19 months apart. We're in for some excitement around here! He's going to be a wonderful big brother. Very hands-on, I imagine. :)
We've decided to find out the gender this time. I loved not finding out with Trenton, but we figured this time we'll see what's it like to know in advance. It definitely adds some more excitement to the 20-week ultrasound—Thursday, October 15! You know I'll keep you posted!
