Now. Some people say the 2nd Trimester begins at 13 weeks... but you will find that most pregnancy books and sites will tell you that your last week of your 1st trimester is week 13 and your actual first week of your 2nd trimester is week 14. WHATEVER you go by... I'm going by week 14... and I'm here. I have arrived! If you remember, I told you in an earlier post that at the end of this month I could possibly have a belly pic for you. Well. Here is my first belly pic. Now. Mind you... it's nothing major. My baby is still the size of a lemon so he or she isn't going to be taking up much space. But. Here you go. My 14 week belly. DISCLAIMER: I didn't realize I was standing at a slight angle in this picture, I think it is making my belly appear larger than it actually is.
To me it just looks like I ate way too many salt and vinegar chips... but it's getting there. By week 18 the belly should be taking shape nicely. ha.
Ok. I am feeling so much better. The 2nd trimester has proven faithful. In my previous pregnancies, it marked the banishment of most of my morning sickness... and it didn't fail me this time. I haven't felt nauseous since a couple days ago. My energy level has gone up! Thank the Lord! I have been doing so much lately! Today I was on my feet nearly all day. Cleaning the kitchen up, Going out to lunch with my good friend and neighbor Tiffany, shopping for summer clothes for the kids, then for my long walk that I try to take daily. I have been busy! I hope my energy level stays because I need to keep up with the housework!
Other than that, not much else to update you on. Everything is going fine. Ready for the summer with my kids. Lindsey had her last day of school on Thursday of last week so I plan on doing lots of playing outside with them this summer. Even though allergies are kicking my butt. Can't let that stop me!
Looking forward to this summer!
