I'm three days into week # 12 and on Sunday I graduate to the second trimester! This is exciting news because the odds of miscarriage go way down at that point, and my energy level is supposed to rebound. Everyone tells me this is the fun stage of pregnancy. It's during this stage that I'll find out the sex of the baby, feel the baby start to kick and begin getting the nursery ready. Up to this point I've been emotionally reserved about the baby. The miscarriage stats really freaked me out when I first read them and so my mind has shied away from imagining the baby or being a mom, but that reserve is starting to melt. I was at Target on Saturday and I passed by the baby aisles and the tears just welled up when I saw all the little onesies.
