Weight: Well, my scale varies so I think I need to stop using it. . It says I'm up 1-2 pounds since my last appt 2 weeks ago & I hope that's wrong since I should only be gaining 2 pounds every 4 weeks.
Symptoms: I've definitely been more emotional lately & crying about things. Still cramping sometimes & headaches but not as frequent. Backaches have been bad on some days.. usually lower. I have also noticed I have been really light headed and out of breath sometimes. I will just be standing there & have to find somewhere to sit down. I've also started to laugh.. at everything.. is that a pregnancy thing? ;)
Clothes: Everything I wear is pretty much maternity now. Tanya gave me even more clothes & I've been rocking dresses & super comfy shorts my mom got me!
Sleep: Sleep is the same still. I wake up so often to use the restroom I don't even think about it anymore. I also will still have some nights that I will wake up and be up for 1-2 hours just tossing and turning while my mind runs wild.
Cravings/Aversions: Chocolate anything really ;) I've really had to calm it down with how Much dessert food I was having. I didn't say I would cut it out.. Just that I'll limit myself to one brownie instead of 2 .. And by 2 I mean 4. I've also been eating a ton of strawberries & frozen organic soft pretzels. Oh! And I saw an advertisement for chilis chips and salsa & I reaaaalllly almost made Nathan take me at 10 at night .. (I like to dip the chip in ranch then in the salsa, please don't judge me) but don't worry I settled for store bought chips and deli salsa. It's all good.
Baby- Little girl is doing good! She is about the size of a pomegranate at 10.5 inches and 12 (ish) ounces. It's so crazy that's she's getting so big & will almost weigh a pound! It's really starting to sink in that there is a tiny human in my belly!!
Movement: This girl is a mover! Despite finding out I have an anterior placenta, she has been moving so much lately! One day she moved so much I only didn't feel her moving every couple hours but for the most part it was pretty consistent and I loved it! She has also started to kick back when I put the stethoscope on my belly (although she did this a couple times in the past too!) and she will kick me if am am sitting hunched over so I tend to do that to get her to move if I want to ;)
How I am feeling: SO GREAT! Can we talk about how different the second trimester is?! I never thought I would see the day again where I enjoyed grocery shopping, meal planning, budgeting & cleaning again! I have so much energy & I want to do everything. I've actually been enjoying cleaning & spent a day off just getting stuff done & it was fun to me haha! It's why I think I was fine with doing another post this week.. I also realized I was trying to hard with the chalkboard so I got less crazy so I could stay more motivated ;) I am soaking it in because I know I may get uncomfortable come the third trimester.
How Daddy's feeling: "I'm excited to paint her room & get everything around the house finished."
Other Stuff: I cannot stop shopping for this sweet girl. It's probably getting out of hand but baby girl stuff is just so cute! Last week I got some stuff at JCPennys and later that night Nathan and I went out and got her even more at Kohls. I was also in Payson this last weekend and found an amazing deal on a white changing table that matches her crib! My sister actually used to have the same one & loved it! It is so well made with tons of storage and I got a smokin' deal!
