Here we are! 14 weeks along and counting. This past couple weeks have been awesome because the ‘cat is out of the bag‘ and people are sharing in our joy with us!
I feel great. At about the 12 week mark I really started to feel like myself again and now I feel like I have rounded the corner with only small waves of nausea every now and then. I don’t know if my nausea has decreased or if I’ve just learned to eat more frequently to manage it. Either way, I don’t feel hungover 24/7, so I am very thankful for that.
At about 12 weeks I started showing… which foiled some of my announcement plans because people kept looking at my belly and speculating. My shirts are pulling and it just doesn’t work to cover it up! the first time someone touched my belly it took me by surprise, but I am embracing it wholeheartedly:)
The only thing that has really changed is that it sounds like my heart is beating inside of my head and my limbs are swelling so my rings don’t fit. I am having some dizziness and headaches, but I am told that’s very normal in the second trimester. In comparison to the sickness in the first trimester, I will take these symptoms any day!
I am going to start working out again this week. I literally sit down all day and I don’t think it’s healthy! Now that I don’t feel like barfing all the time I think it will make me feel a lot better mentally and physically (seeing that I’ve gained 10lbs in my first trimester:D).
