oh, how time flies! this is the last week of my second trimester. ya. the last week. next week, i’m the proud owner of a third-trimester belly. third. aka last trimester. aka, we will have a baby in three months. yipes!
thankfully, this trimester has been gobs and gobs easier than the first trimester. nausea? gone. crazy insane fatigue? gone. the “is she chubby or is she pregnant” look? gone. the second trimester is like the honeymoon phase – it’s like the preggo gods are saying “you survived! now i’ll reward you with a little break before you get huge!” hehe. well, thanks preggo gods – i sure have enjoyed the break 😉
At the end of my first trimester, i did a “first trimester favorites” list – which mostly consisted of things i used to survive the first trimester! since this trimester was so much better, here are nate and my favorite memories from the second trimester:
how far along? 27 weeks.
maternity clothes? yep! plus yoga pants and nate’s basketball shorts!
stretch marks? nope – knock on wood.
sleep? i’m getting used to waking up every couple of hours…
best moment of the week? shopping with my mom for baby stuff – and finding some super adorable clothes for the little man.
movement? oh ya. and he’s soooo low!
symptoms: how about my bottomless pit for a stomach?
milestones: last week of the second trimester!
miss anything? i miss 90% of the clothes i had in my closet. i complained about not having anything to wear before, but now – my options are seriously limited!
food cravings: anything and everything. if it’s food, i’m eating it!
belly button in or out? out. way out. and getting hard to disguise in clothing…
wedding rings on or off? on! i’m shocked my fingers haven’t swollen yet.
looking forward to: seeing our little lyon on monday when we get another ultrasound!
