You can read about my 1st trimester here. As I entered the 2nd trimester of this pregnancy, I naively thought the morning sickness would soon stop. If anything it seemed to ramp up a notch. Eating throughout the day kept it at bay, but I could be caught off guard. I was concerned about excessive

Its hard to believe that Alexander has been with us for 4 months now. I have already forgotten how small he seemed, he is so strong and sturdy now. He grows and changes every day and I love being at home to share it all with him. Size He is weighing in at 11lb 3oz
