I have finally made it to the 2nd trimester! What a relief. The weeks are really starting to fly by. “They” say this is the most enjoyable trimester of the three so I hope “they” are right! This past week hasn’t been very eventful which is probably a good thing… so this blog post will be a little short. I’ve had a little more energy but not much. I’ve been craving sweets CONSTANTLY. It’s so bad. Cookies, cake, brownies, pie… I’ll have it all (but I shouldn’t). I need to start eating foods that are more nutritious but it’s pretty hard sometimes. I did have my first weird craving for tomatoes and Italian dressing at 11:30 at night. My mom makes an awesome cucumber salad, which was what I was really craving, but that was the next best thing. Healthier than cookies 😉
Baby is the size of a lemon! 3 1/2 to 4 inches long and weighing in at a little less than 2 ounces! It’s crazy. I really can’t wait to start feeling movement. It’s so weird that they are moving all around in there and I can’t feel it. One night I woke up and I felt like a somersault type movement in my lower stomach. From left to right. But honestly, it was probably just gas 😛
I plan on making a “First Trimester Must Haves” blog within the next few days. I think it may be helpful for others and also just to talk about what got me through! Sooo keep an eye out for it 😉
How far along? 14 weeks
Total weight gain/loss? No change
Maternity clothes? Not yet! But looser clothes are definitely my best friend
Stretch marks? Nope
Sleep? I feel like I sleep pretty heavy and I have SO many dreams
Best moment this week? Reaching the second trimester milestone!
Miss anything? I can’t really think of anything
Movement? Don’t think so!
Food cravings? Cookies, cake, brownies
Anything making you queasy or sick? Anything that I am not in the mood for. I don’t really get queasy or sick much… more like grossed out.
Showing yet? A teeny bit
Gender guesses? Boy for me. Girl for Aaron (This won’t change)
Belly button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or moody? A good mixture of both
Looking forward to? Christmas and being with family and friends 🙂
