I’ve officially made it to the 2nd Trimester. Yay! Baby is now the size of a lemon, or as Pregnant Chicken says, a cupcake!
Symptoms: I didn’t have any morning sickness (praise the Lord!), but
moments days of fatigue and sometimes queasiness. Overall, I’ve been pretty lucky through all of this so far. I started showing pretty early on, mostly from bloat, but now I think it’s starting to look like a genuine baby bump!
Favorite thing to wear: I bought a new pair of dark teal skinny jeans. They still have some stretch in the waist, so looking forward to wearing them for a while longer. I’ve still got plenty of tops that work, but down to my last few pairs of jeans that fit. I’ve had to buy a whole new set of bras, leggings, and tank tops. My awesome sister-in-law gave me a couple of bags of maternity clothes, but I haven’t had to dig into those just yet.
Activity: Went for a nice swim this week, got a new bike for my birthday, and took a long dog walk. Hoping to be more active as the weather is consistently warmer.
Food: Eating more, that’s for sure. No cravings yet. Sense of smell increasingly strong.
Mental state/Planning: Still moments of freakout (is this really happening?!?), but I’ve started to think more (and Pin more!) about the nursery. We should know the gender in a few weeks, so can start talking about names.
Here’s the latest Ultrasound. It’s beginning to look like a baby with limbs and everything!
