I just hit the second trimester today and I'm pumped! Anyone else want to have a little emoticon dance party with me to celebrate the end of the scary/icky trimester?
I am having longer periods of "good" times.. but for the most part still fairly sick. but the light is definitely brighter
I had my second trimester celebration challenged by a friend and had to look up the official cut off points:
The Developmental second trimester starts at 12 weeks (third at 27 weeks), when it officially becomes a fetus and the scary miscarriage rates reduce.
The Gestational second trimester starts at 13 weeks + 3 days (third at 26 weeks + 6 days), which is the 40 weeks divided equally into three trimesters.
The Conceptional second trimester starts at 14 weeks + 5 days (third at 27 weeks + 3 days), which is the true pregnancy weeks (38) divided into three trimesters.
As I am 12 weeks today, I say
I feel better - I think. I haven't really struggled with morning sickness. I get waves that wash over me but nothing too bad.
I am still tired and sleeping a good 90 minutes to 2 hours in the afternoon when my girls have rest time (heh I sleep for the length or whatever movie the oldest chooses :p)
I don't know if the tiredness is my health issues (autoimmune stuff), pregnancy, or missing the ADD meds I was on for 3 years. Oh well.. it is getting better :)
