13 weeks, hello second trimester!

Wow time is starting to go a bit faster now. So happy to have made it to the second trimester! C and I love hearing out baby's heartbeat on the doppler, louder and louder as time goes by. 

We got back from Florida Tuesday night on C's birthday. We had so much fun, it was beautiful weather and so relaxing! I convinced C to fly there and back :)! So the baby made it through it's first and second plane ride with no issues lol. I was a tad worried about that but the heartbeat was nice and strong on the doppler when we got home :)! It was so hard coming back to reality/work. But at least I can say I am happy to be on day shift for the month of June. This means a more normal schedule for me and more time with my wife and family. 

I am so excited for the gender reveal US on June 8th! I am dying to know what this bean is! Also, I am excited to see my family's reaction. We are revealing the gender as a surprise at my mom's surprise 50th birthday party on June 15th. So the news will not be posted until then because C and I want to keep a secret until then. Especially since my wonderful sister follows our blog lol. 

Well I hope all is well in blog land. Baby dust to all!

Gender prediction:  Well, I always said boy but I think that was because I didn't want to get my hopes up for a girl.... but I am starting to think this baby is a girl. 
Symptoms: Not much these days
Major purchases this week? Nothing
Looking forward to: Gender US June 8th!


  1. I can't wait for the gender reveal post!! I love those! :P I'm glad you had a great trip - I hear California is beautiful!

  2. 13 weeks already, whoo hoo! How exciting that baby already had his/her first flight. :)

  3. I can't believe you are 13w already - that seems to have gone fast! What is your gut feeling sex? Look forward to the gender update!

  4. Out of curiosity, are there are no state laws where you are forbidding sex to be revealed before a certain time. Here - it's 20 weeks. They wont tell you before hand. But if you are 13 weeks now, and your ultrasound is so soon, you are clearly finding out before 20 weeks. I wish we had that option here sometimes.

    What a great idea for your moms 50th btw, I'm excited to hear how it goes, and hear the news on sex!

    1. There aren't any laws that I know of. This ultrasound is based off of a scientific study so they make you aware that it is not 100% accurate. That being said they give you like an 80 - 90% chance that there determination is right and then you go back at 17 weeks to see for sure. For me 80 - 90% is enough :)
