The Second Trimester!
We have reached the second trimester today! I have completed 13 weeks and have started in on week number 14. Baby measures a little over 3 inches now and has completed development of most major organ systems at this point. We had a little bit of a scare this week with some spotting and bleeding. The physician referred to it as a threatened abortion and stated that it was probably due to a subchorionic bleed. Dr. Smith visualized the baby on the ultrasound again and baby was kicking and moving around like crazy as well as showing excellent growth from the week before. Dr. Smith says this baby must be a boy because he has already started trying to cause trouble! I got to take a few days off from work and relax around the house. We will have another check up in a few weeks and go for an amniocentesis during week 16. After that, we will know if this baby is a girl or a boy so I can at least refer to it as "he" or "she" while we work on names.
