Now that I've officially entered my second trimester, which is still hard to believe by the way, I decided to start posting a weekly pregnancy update. I think for me this will be a great way to remember this experience later on. I bought a notebook that I planned on writing this kind of stuff in, but honestly have been terrible about keeping up with it.
How Far Along? 14 Weeks - Hooray! Second trimester, honestly, it's still hard to believe.
Maternity Clothes? None yet. Today is the first day I'm wearing a bel.la band. So far, so good :)
Weight Gain? Not sure. I seem to really go up and down. This was also the case before I got pregnant. One day I wear two pounds, more the next day two pounds less. I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow, so I'll see what she says. I'm underweight anyway so I'm assuming I'll be packing on the pounds at some point
Stretch Marks? None yet - I'm sure these are coming though.
Sleep? Okay. I've been really hot at night lately though, even with the AC and a fan blowing right on me. I also wake up a few times to use the bathroom.
Best Moment of the Week? Probably just having time off from work for the holiday. I just love having extra days off.
Weirdest Comment: Nothing really - although there are still a lot of people who don't know I'm pregnant. If they notice my growing midsection, they haven't said anything yet.
Movement? Not yet.
Gender? Too soon to tell.
What I miss? Nothing.
Symptoms: This week my pants getting tighter is about it. Last week we were on vacation and if I spent too much time walking or outside in the heat I felt really drained very quickly.
Weekly Wisdom: When I told the HR Director at my office, she said, that I should complete enjoy being pregnant. It's such a special time and short time and most women only experience it a few times. She's so right. I've been enjoying my pregnancy, but what she said really impacted me. Clearly I work in a 'family friendly' office :)
