Just now as I sat down to write this I realized I’m nearing the end of my 2nd trimester already (in about 2 weeks). The 1st trimester dragged on, this trimester flew by. I wonder how the 3rd will feel (I’m hoping for another fly-by). We shall see 🙂
Due Date: July 23, 2016 (nothing’s changed here)
How Far Along: 26 Weeks
Next Appointment: April 28th
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Close to 20lbs now….It must be the lifting, right? Yes, all muscle and baby (that’s what I’ll keep telling myself…as I stuff my face with chocolate)
Exercise: Still lifting but nearing the end sadly…doctor says no more than 20lbs once I hit 32 weeks (which means I wouldn’t be able to lift my own children soooo, we’ll see :)….)
Stretch Marks: No
Maternity Clothes: Yep, all the maternity clothes.
Belly Button: About to pop
Sleep: Not terrible, could be better
Food Cravings: Lately, sweets. And still with the Indian food.
Food Aversions: Nothing anymore really.
Symptoms: Lower back aches, leg cramps….meh.
Movement: Yes! I feel her move quite a lot now. Loving it 🙂
Labor Signs: The occasional braxton hick. When I’m dehydrated and really active…but I’ve got it under control now for the most part.
What I Miss: The ability to sneeze without peeing myself a little. And apparently coughing too hard may also cause the peeing….sigh.
What I’m Loving: Feeling the her move and seeing her little kicks and jabs from the outside too.
What I’m Looking Forward To: Same as before- meeting her for the first time! Can’t wait to kiss her little cheeks 🙂
Best Moment This Week: I ate a lot of Indian food…that made me happy.
Words of Wisdom: Pregnancy hormones are not to be trusted.
Until next time, here’s another picture from her ultrasound back in February (cause I like looking at her pictures):
