I am 19 weeks today and feeling remarkably better than in the first trimester! I still get yucky tastes in my mouth sometimes, but I haven't thrown up in over 2 weeks, I can get by on 5 meals a day instead of 7, and I have more energy most of the time, with only the occasional exhausted spell. I'm having a little hinkiness and pain in my right hip joint, but no SPD at all so far.
I had another checkup. All good! I gained hardly any weight since last month, despite Thanksgiving, but since I'd gained 10 pounds in the first trimester and my uterus is the right size, that's fine.
We finally found a good family therapist, so I'm hoping that my partner's and 8-year-old's tendency toward constant conflict (which has some spillover into conflict with me) will be much improved by the time the baby arrives. Already we have some new ideas to work with.
