On the one hand I feel like the first trimester of this second pregnancy has just flown by, but on the other hand I know a lot better: There were some pret-ty long days in there...! Be that as it may, we're officially in the second trimester now and couldn't be more thankful!
Here's where we're currently at:
Symptoms: Morning sickness, my old friend! But all the medical journals assure me that it's a good sign, so I'm happy. Mostly :) .
Baby: We had our 12 week ultrasound today. It was amazing to see how big Baby Junior already is and how much he/she is moving around! I completely fell in love :) - just like I did with this little one...
|Baby Girl, a few days old.|
Running: I haven't run for a few weeks now. To be honest, I just haven't been feeling up to it, plus I also want to wait until we get some final blood results back just to make 100% sure that everything is safe and in order before I attempt to run again.
Weight Gain: I'm gaining quite a bit slower than I did with Baby Girl. Perhaps because one is generally a bit better prepared the second time around? No more frantic scurrying around when your body asks for strange (to you) foods at completely random intervals...
- Total gain to date: 1.7 kg (3.7 pounds).
Food aversions/cravings: No real cravings yet. Anything rich and spicy, on the other hand, is totally taboo - noooooo thanks!
