My Pregnancy Story Part 3: Finding Out the Sex and the Second Trimester

I discuss the first trimester in Part 1: I Didn't Know I was Pregnant and Part 2: My Threatened Miscarriage.

After my threatened miscarriage, the pregnancy continued fairly smoothly. I didn't have many symptoms. No morning sickness. I was a bit tired and didn't sleep through the night after I was (really) 6 weeks pregnant (before I even knew I was pregnant). I started showing really early (12 weeks) since I have a short torso and measured large early on. At 15 weeks, I was measuring 19 weeks. The doctor assured me that I was not having twins as that would have been found in the first ultrasound. By 19 weeks, I was closer to being on track and measured 21 weeks.

STFL: Dancing, Singing, and Dirty Eggs

5. Go Crazy!

Wolf Prince and another child at daycare are very excited at pick up time. They have a new game. They go to the entry way and start spinning in circles waving their arms everywhere singing "Go crazy! Go crazy!" And then fall down laughing.

My Pregnancy Story Part 2: My Threatened Miscarriage

In Part 1 of my pregnancy story, I explained how I Didn't Know I was Pregnant. We finally found out about my miscalculated due date after I had a threatened miscarriage.

At the end of March 2010, I received my big fat positive on a home pregnancy test. Easter was 1.5 weeks later. At Easter, we thought I was 5 weeks pregnant. Papa Wolf and I were going to be at our individual families. I wanted to wait until Mother's Day to make the announcement (I had plans on how to announce it) and be almost past the first trimester in case of miscarriage. Papa Wolf's sister was due in September 2010, 2-3 months before me. Being the first grandchild, Papa Wolf's family was very excited. Papa Wolf warned me that he probably couldn't keep his mouth shut if his sister was there. So, he would tell me if he "accidentally" shared the news, and then I would tell my family. His mom was talking about buying shoes for the new baby, and Papa Wolf was a bit jealous. He told her that she needed two pairs. "Accidentally" spilled out, right? So I had to share with my family too. As no one was expecting it, both of our families were quite shocked.

My Pregnancy Story Part 1: I Didn't Know I was Pregnant

I have long debated how to share my pregnancy and birth stories. I will be dividing my pregnancy story into four parts, to be posted over the next week:
  • I Didn't Know I was Pregnant
  • My Threatened Miscarriage
  • Finding Out the Sex and Second Trimester
  • Third Trimester
My pregnancy story begins in Summer 2009. Papa Wolf and I were planning our wedding for November. We had discussed the issue of children, and had originally decided that we would wait until after I finished law school (May 2011) and then give myself some time to establish myself working. Papa Wolf always said he wanted to have his first before 30, so we had plenty of time. Somewhere along the lines, our plans changed. I spoke to law graduates, and many agreed that it would be easier to have a child in law school than after starting work. We discussed it, and decided that we would try for a December baby so I could finish finals and then have winter break off and hopefully only miss a couple weeks at the beginning of my last semester.

If I Won the Lottery...

With the Powerball estimated at $350 Million, we decided to buy a few tickets. We usually ignore the lottery. Last time we bought a couple tickets was when there was the record breaking Powerball last year. But it's fun fantasizing. Here's what I would do if I won the lottery:
