I have a terrible memory. I really do. It actually runs in my family and it frustrates my husband to no end. SO, I have to document things. Everything. Especially things I want to remember, like my pregnancies. When I was pregnant the first time I blogged for my friends and family and captured those sweet memories and I thought it would be fun to share a little of that with you guys!
Hello 2nd Trimester!
How far along? 12 weeks
Weight gain? at least 5lbs already! I’ve never been so hungry in my life!
Morning sickness? Still a big ole YES I’m trying not to complain because at least I know baby is ok, but oh, how I long to feel less queasy! And I could do without the middle of the night nausea wake-up calls! Yuck!
Maternity clothes? Um… I may or may not have bought my first pair of maternity jeans this go round yesterday… for $11. BOOM. Yes, I still use coupons when I shop retail too
Best moment this week? Having my son sense that I was green around the edges and turn to me so sweetly this morning and say “Mommy, you don’t feel good, do you?” “No, baby, Mommy doesn’t feel very good” “Want me to help you feel better??” Sweetest moment with my very caring child. Oh, my heart just swells with love for that kid!
Movement? Not yet. I’m hoping that will come in the next 2 or 3 weeks!
Food cravings? Not really. How boring, right?
Food aversions? Coffee and sweets still. Total and complete bummer.
What I’m looking forward to… Doctor’s appointment this week!
Ok, now that I’m officially into the second trimester I’m wanting to be morning sickness free and so far that hasn’t happened… it’s actually been worse this week. I need all of your home remedies and suggestions for kicking this nausea to the curb! My doctor just put me on B6 and upped my nausea medication so I’m hoping that works but really… I know yall must have some suggestions! Bring em!
PS. I’m being a little nerdy and wanna compare my first pregnancy baby bump with this pregnancy bump so here’s a little side-by-side action of week 12 in both pregnancies. Left picture is first pregnancy and right picture is today’s picture at 12 weeks:
