We're in the SECOND trimester

I'm not going to lie. This is my favorite of the three trimesters. 

I think everyone would agree with me that it's the best. ;) Then again I don't know, I didn't get to spend much time in the third trimester last time, so maybe I'll change my mind this time around. LOL, probably not!

I'm feeling pretty good 95% of the time now and lovin' it! I even think I might have felt the baby moving last night... hopefully... I guess it could have maybe been something else moving in my body, like gas I guess. But I'm inclined to believe it was my cute little baby. 

So there is this cool magazine that they give you in the hospital with really cool pictures in it. They gave one to me last pregnancy too and I was in school at the time and needed to paint something important to me. This is what I came up with: 
(keep in mind this painting is actually like 20 times bigger than it appears on your screen) Photobucket The reactions I got were kind of varied with this painting. Either people loved it, or they seemed to hate it. People were nice enough not to tell me they hated it, I could just tell by their faces and their silence. OH well, not everyone has to like the insides of my body. :)

I just looked up something cool I'd like to share:

How big is your baby?

Your baby is now over 4 inches long and weighs just a little less than 2 ounces.

What is happening with your baby?

Your baby is continuing to grow and mature at this point. Your baby’s arms are going to begin to lengthen and be more proportioned to the rest of the body. The liver is beginning to produce bile, while the spleen is beginning to produce red blood cells.
The development of your baby’s brain enables him/her to use his/her facial muscles to grimace, frown, and squint. He/she may even be sucking his/her thumb. Because you have begun the second trimester and most of the critical development has been completed, the chance of miscarriage decreases.

p.s.  Check out the easter egg hunting post below if you haven't seen it yet.  Chico is quite adorable.

Yay for second trimester! It was by far my favorite too! I hope you're doing well and enjoying this time in your pregnancy along with your time with cute Chico!
