Other than my growing belly and frequent exhaustion I wouldn’t really know I was pregnant yet. Oh, my first trimester I had lots of nausea, exhaustion and moodiness but now that I have hit the second trimester I feel a lot better!
I am able to get so much more accomplished due to a higher energy level! I still really need my naps though or else by 5pm I am dead tired and super cranky.
Weight gain – I am so happy about this part! So far I have only gained about 12 pounds. I am currently 150 pounds, the exact same weight I was when I got pregnant with Lizzie. I am trying to eat healthier this time and get more exercise so that getting back down to my pre-pregnancy weight is easier.
Right now I am doing pregnancy pilates when I can and I am definitely not drinking enough water. This is the one thing I struggle with the most every single pregnancy, and I know it. It certainly does not help that my nose and tastebuds are so heightened that I cannot stand the taste of our well water. So I buy bottled water and when it runs out I just don’t drink enough.
My friend Tasha told me the other day that I don’t look pregnant. I guess that is a compliment. My belly really does just have a teeny bump and that is fine with me! I have never really started to “show” until after 25 weeks or so.
And the most frequently asked question: Yes I will be finding out the sex of the baby! In fact I am working on a small giveaway with you guessing what you think it is! I’ll be revealing the answer on August 1st!
