Hello second trimester!!!!!!!!! I cannot believe that I am THIRTEEN weeks pregnant!!! How crazy is that?! I am so excited to finally be in the second trimester. I feel like there is so much to look forward to over the upcoming weeks. Finding out the baby's gender, getting to feel the baby move, and finally having a real BUMP!
So, let's recap week 12!
Symptoms: I have been having headaches on and off, and they are anything but fun. Thankfully I don't get too many at work because that would make me cry. They are very strong and nothing seems to make them go away except for napping. I haven't been feeling as tired as I did the previous weeks, but I still am tired later in the day. I am happy to be getting some of my energy back and I hope that will continue on for the next few weeks. Other than that, the only constant annoying symptom is breakouts! YUCK! I feel like a super awkward teenager sometimes, but it comes with the territory and I happy to deal with just that one annoyance instead of many of the other ones that other people have. :)
Bumpdate: I feel the bump a'coming! LOL!! I haven't bought any maternity pants or clothes yet because most of my clothes still fit since I lost a lot of weight before getting pregnant. However, my smaller sized stuff is starting to get a little tight. I was putting on a skirt this morning and noticed that the belly wasn't fitting quite like it did last week. I honestly can't wait to have a real bump and not look awkward fat instead! LOL! :)
Cravings: I still am not having super strong cravings for food. I have things that sound good from time to time, but for the most part everything is okay with me. One thing I have noticed this week is that I am SUPER thirsty and cannot seem to get enough to drink.
What I'm looking forward to: FRIDAY!!! We get to see the Dr again and Scott will get to hear the baby's heartbeat! YAY! I cannot wait to hear it again and have him hear it for the first time. Also, I cannot wait to find out the baby's gender and start to feel them move around in there. SO exciting!
Best moment this week: Getting my Intelligender test in the mail! I cannot wait to see what it says, and yes I know it's not totally accurate but it IS fun!
