Soon to be a family of three!

I can't believe how long it's been since I've been active on SparkPeople! I was once obsessed with the site and with working out. A friend of mine convinced me to join Facebook and I was probably the last person in the free world to do so. That sucked up so much of my computer time that I let Spark slide. :o(
In January of this year my husband and I found out that we're expecting our first child -- a girl! She's due September 15th, only about two months away. My pregnancy has been really good so far. In the beginning I had nausea everyday for about six weeks, usually in the evening. Then I figured out that I had to eat small snacks throughout the day to keep the nausea away. I was experiencing some reflux at the end of the first trimester which exploded in the second trimester. Tums became my best friend and I declared a trial separation from orange juice and tomatoes!
Now it's the third trimester and I'm still feeling okay. My back aches after sitting or standing for too long and I can't remember the last time I slept through the night without getting up to go to the bathroom. Hahahaha. My weight gain has been steady -- so far I've only gained 22lbs and I'm 31 weeks. All my prenatal tests and scans have come back fine. My husband and I are very excited. We just need to decide on a name. Who knew that'd be so hard?
More updates to come!
