Lots of nausea
Gained about 3 lbs (well 8, but I lost 5)
Saw the baby on ultrasound.
Had food cravings and aversions.
Felt the first flutters.
Bought the first thing for baby (yellow BG Flip diaper)
Planned the kids' room.
Well, the nausea has been gone for weeks, and the fatigue is finally lifting which has left me to ponder what this next trimester will be like. I only had a baby 16 months ago, but I cant remember what the second trimester is like at all. Its like I blocked it out because it was time when everything changed the most. I remember finding out I was pregnant, telling people, and then BOOM everything after that is all 3rd trimester. SO, Im making a list of what I think the next 12- 14 weeks looks like for me:
Huge burst of energy (paint and decorate kids room, clean out the basement, purge, purge, purge)
Get an appetite.
Start wearing maternity clothes.
Find out the sex of baby (Aug 24)
Start preparing for winter pregnancy (ie. cook lots of yummy stuff for DH while he cuts lots of wood for me)
Pop out and look really pregnant.
Start battling all of the "you are huge" and "oh my god, are there 2 in there" comments.
Side lying sleeping- bust out ye old body pillow.
Move DD to her own room.
Start physically preparing for labor (kegels, squats, pelvic lifts, ect every day)
Gain 5-10 more lbs.
Paint my belly as a pumpkin for Halloween
Really start feeling the baby move.
Thats a lot different than how right now is! Its amazing to think how fast things change in the second trimester. Aside from the stuff I will be doing, the baby will get hair and nails, start sucking and swallowing, form bones and fat, and hear and have visible genitals. Way different than the little tiny thing I saw on my US two weeks ago.
How do you think your second trimester will be? What was your first trimester like? For all of you ladies who have arrived at your second trimester, CONGRATS and WELCOME.
