Sorry for the lack of blog post yesterday, but Monday (the day I write for Tuesday) was a rough day for me and I just didn’t get to write anything. But today, I have my bumpdate for you all! 14 weeks, and finally officially in the 2nd trimester by all sources!
Symptoms: Still a lot of the same. Excess Saliva, acne, constipation, no appetite, out of breathe easily, tire easily during workouts. I WILL say the morning sickness has gotten a LOT better. I still have no appetite and in the evenings if I haven’t eaten enough that day I get sick, but it’s not nearly as bad, so hopefully I get my appetite back soon and it will be easier to eat more! I think my bloating is finally starting to go down. I look smaller in today’s picture than I do in yesterday’s (see last photo).
Baby’s Size: Lemon
Maternity Clothes: Going to buy some this weekend, particularly bottoms. I can make shirts do for awhile longer but not normal people (i.e. not workout) bottoms.
Stretch Marks: Still ok
Sleep: Eh. Some nights better than others. I usually have no problem falling asleep but some nights I wake up at 2 or 3 AM and can’t fall back asleep. I also get up at least once to go to the bathroom.
Miss Anything? Being able to workout/walk up the stairs/run without feeling so tired and winded.
Cravings: Same. Cold fruit, cold drinks, snowballs. I may invest in a snowball/shaved ice machine. Maybe.
Aversions: Same. Just don’t really want to eat much of anything. Except snowballs. Always room for snowballs.
Looking Forward To: Craving food again, and my appt. next week!
What I’m Loving: That while I don’t feel amazing, I feel SO much better than I did this time last month. There IS a light at the end of the tunnel to my friends still in their first trimester going through sickness!
Workouts: Still not great but getting better. I ran twice last week, 2 miles each time. I also rode the stationary bike at the gym. I try to at least walk 6 days a week for 2 miles if nothing else, so that I am at least moving.
The first trimester moved SO SLOWLY but I feel like the past week flew by, woo hoo!
QOTD: Did the second trimester fly by for you if you have even been pregnant? What did you crave or hope one day you will crave as a pregnant lady?
