Second Trimester!

Hello there 14 weeks! It's so good to see you! 

I told Jordan last night and I hope I haven't jinxed myself, but this week has been great. I haven't had any nausea since Sunday and couldn't take a nap yesterday when I laid down and tried. I really can't complain because I know my first trimester could've been so much worse. However, 13 weeks of nausea and fatigue got pretty old there towards the end. I was lucky (knock on wood!) to never actually BE sick, just feel pretty puny. Some days were worse than others, and some weeks were harder than others (Mission Lab anyone!?). Thankfully, it's all behind me now and I'm both excited to feel great and surprised that the first 13 weeks went by so quickly!!!

I don't really feel like I'm "showing" all that much, especially in normal clothes. After a big meal, I may have a little bellybutton bulge, but for the most part, it just seems like I'm in that awkward looks-chubby-but-not-necessarily-pregnant phase. I won't comment on weight gain, mostly because I haven't weighed myself recently, but I'm pretty sure it's around 6-7lbs or so. I hope newfound second trimester energy will motivate me to get out and run more regularly!

14 weeks!
Size: Lemon (or about 3.5" long!)
Cravings: None so far, although pizza has consistently sounded appetizing and not nauseating! I wouldn't say that i've ever HAD to have anything specific yet!
Aversions: Plain scrambled eggs, the Advocare meal replacement shakes (HA!), some seafood and most green vegetables.... basically all the healthy foods that made up my entire 24dc diet! How funny!
Movement: None yet!
Gender: No clue!
Clothes: Normal pants, tops, and dresses. 
Looking forward to: my next appointment on Wednesday!

I am so excited for you!!! Having a baby was totally not "in my plan" but boy am I thankful God knew better than me. Enjoy your 2nd trimester & pregnancy. I never thought I'd say this but I kind of miss it. Congrats again!

Hi! I used to live in CC. Our daughter was born there! Just wanted to say hi! :)

Hey, Hollie! I was so excited to meet someone else down here with me from Kelly's Korner! :) We live in Corpus Christi on the Island, but I'll also always claim the Southeast as my home. Congratulations on your little one. Our Meggie was a huge surprise to us, too. But so, so worth it - now I can't imagine it being any other way. And, I guess I should say that I'm an advocate for whatever works best for baby and mama - haha! I had our second one naturally, but got an epidural when I had Meg - and I'll get one again any day if we ever have the same circumstances in the birthing room that we had with her. My L and D nurses were like angels to me! I think you have an awesome occupation. :) Thanks for saying hi!
