We had our second doctor's appointment (there wasn't much to report after our first doctor's appointment only a week after the ultrasound).

The exciting part of this visit was hearing the heart beat for the first time.  It was around 150 this time, and was a good confirmation that there's still a growing baby in there.  I haven't really gained any weight, but the doctor isn't worried about it at all.  What I don't understand is why I can't wear a lot of my "regular" clothes if I haven't actually gained anything.

I've made it through the first trimester, which is good because that's when I should feel my best, but bad because there's only two more left!  I'm starting to feel like January is awfully close, but waiting until September to find out the gender seems so far away!
