Baby Teapot update

Today, according to the doctors calculations, I am at 12 weeks and 5 days! That means that in about 3 days I will be in the 2nd trimester! Hopefully, that means less sickness and more energy. So everyone pray with me right now: Please, dear Jesus, make it better for Sara Beth in the 2nd trimester!!!!!
Today was our monthly appointment. Unlike some of my friends, I refuse to tell you how much weight I gain or loose, so just pretend that I am loosing weight all will be ok.
As for Teapot, he/she is healthy! We got to hear the heartbeat today with the doppler monitor. It was the coolest moment since seeing that little plus sign a few months ago! According to the nurse, Teapot has a strong and consistent heartbeat of 172. This is pretty high, but I had a milk shake and a bowl of fruit earlier so that may have raised the heartbeat a bit. I am also craving lots of beef so who knows if this will be a boy or girl! I'm so excited though to know that Teapot is healthy and growing well.
As for me, I went to dance class tonight and due to some changed in my upper body it was a little harder to do certain things. I don't see this dancing thing getting easier, but it sure it fun!
Also, while at my sister's wedding (which I need to blog about), my stomach got that hard pregnant thing and everything is shifting. It is so weird and pretty much happened over night! I have a feeling that this will not be the last time that my body will change fast.
That's all for now. Now we wait 2 more months to find out if Teapot is a he or she. Please place your bets below! However, be aware, no money is available for the winner, it is all in fun. I mean, we are about to have a baby so we can't be giving out money all willy-nilly!
