Penicillin...Spots....and heartbeats

I am now in my 2nd trimester!! My long lost friend, energy, is coming back to see me finally. I am also getting somewhat of a belly. (I will post belly pics later).

With the exception of having a horrible sinus infection, the past few weeks have been good. I have also discovered I have a new allergy to penicillin. The weird thing is...I've never been allergic to it before. I had been taking antibiotics for my sinus infection. Then, last Sunday I woke up with little red dots all over my body. They looked like I had the measles or chicken pox, except they didn't really itch much. I was somewhat worried so...needless to say, I stopped taking the medicine and the spots went away in a few days.

Matt and I visited our Midwife, Holly, for our 3rd visit today. Everything seems to be moving along just fine. We got to hear "little bit's" heartbeat. It never ceases to amaze me how much of a miracle it is!! It is beating at 147 bpm, which is somewhat lower than our previous visits but Holly says no need to worry.

We are really looking forward to our next visit because we will find out if we are having a little boy or a little girl. I think Matt is more excited about that visit than me!! He is like a little kid at Christmas. What do you think??? Is it a little Matt or a little Lauren?? Please post your vote!
