It's the Size of a Grape... :)

This one inch grape is the size of the growing fetus inside me right now!...yep we are expecting baby #2 in late August sometime, and we are super excited about it! Which has resulted in me napping while Will naps and that may be the reason I have been neglecting to post here very often. :) sorry. and to answer a few questions...yep I have been feeling good. I have been a little nauseous, but really not much to complain about it was really just one hard week. The hard thing is that I have had no interest what-so-ever in eating anything green or vegetable like! eww! french fries taste the best of anything right now and apples and oranges. hummm...BBQ chicken too. :) But I think I am on the upswing! I actually ate a fresh colorful salad tonight and it tasted pretty good. :) I will probably track myself like I did with Will sharing some belly pictures and updates. It has been fun to look back and see how I changed with my first pregnancy. Also, we did have an appointment/interview with a midwife that we really liked a week ago and so far we are planning to stick with her. I am going to try my hardest to have a VBAC this time around so if anyone out there has any advice or thoughts of encouragement I would love to hear from you!

congratulations!!!

and i am happy to hear (sorry, too) that i am not the only one who can't handle greens and veggies in the beginning. i am surrounded by people who crave them in pregnancy and i always feel like the worst mother! hope you continue feeling well!

YAY! Congrats! that is so exciting! I have a friend who just recently had a VBAC about 3 months ago. She worked so hard at getting one and is pretty much a pro since she did so much research and stuff. I can give you her email or anything if you want. I'm sure she would have great info for you!
