That’s right – we’re expecting our first child in December, and we are thrilled!
My first trimester went extremely well. After two miscarriages, we weren’t sure what to expect. I’m pleased to say I’ve had no morning sickness. My only symptoms so far have been extreme fatigue and ravenous hunger. I’m officially in my second trimester.
This accurately represents 1st trimester vs. 2nd trimester for me:
Although, this hasn’t changed much:
I plan to use Fridays to post updates on my progress. My TIU sister Tamara at Lively Happenings has been posting updates along her journey, and I like the example she set. I’m going to use her updates as a template for my own as well.
How far along: 14 weeks
Weight gained: Not completely sure, but probably around 15-17 lbs
Working Out: Teaching Zumba 1-2 times a week, aiming for 3 walks a week
Clothing Choices: I just purged my closet, so I don’t have much left to wear! I have a few dresses and tops, one skirt, one pair of jeans, and one bra. I need to go shopping!
Belly button: Inny
Sleep: Getting about 7-7.5 hours each night, and I’m trying to get to bed earlier.
Best moment this week: Making our public announcement last Saturday
Hardest moment this week: Cleaning out my closet was really sobering. It’s weird to try to be happy about gaining weight, when it’s the polar opposite of my whole life. I’m not feeling too great about my body, even if I know it’s for a good cause.
What I’m missing: Girls’ nights, not feeling frumpy, and feta cheese
Movement: Can’t feel anything yet!
Cravings: Salty things! I want onions a lot – French fried onions, French onion soup… NOM.
Queasy or sick: Feeling great! No morning sickness so far. I’m just tired most of the time.
Looking forward to: A girls weekend roadtrip with my mom to visit my sister!
Strange Dreams: I always have strange dreams. Nothing in particular that I can remember this week.
Now for “belly pictures.”
I’ll be posting more fun stuff along the way, including how I told Spencer, how we told our families, and how we told the world.
