Thanks for continuing to watch & for the support & sharing your experiences! Pregnancy has by far been the coolest thing I've ever gone through, & I still have 22 weeks to go! Let me know if you have any maternity clothes recommendations!
There is so much movement happening! I first started to feel the baby last week. Since then it seems to be a little more every day! It's one of the most magical things I've ever experienced! Such a nice reminder that baby is growing & getting stronger. & even though I've had symptoms since the very beginning which has helped me "feel pregnant", this makes it more real then ever. I try to take a moment when it's happening to stop & enjoy it. I try to imagine what the baby is doing in there & of course, what they look like. I hope they know how excited I am to be their mom & that I can't wait to meet them!
I'm so glad I've started to feel better! It feels like things are moving faster now that I'm not ill all day long. Thanks for the all the encouragement & love you've been showing me! It means so much!
4 months! We've made it to 4 months & relief has finally arrived! I started to feel better last weekend & so far, it's lasted all through the week! The biggest differences have been way less nausea, more energy, & my appetite is back! Not that I haven't been eating. I've been eating enough to gain 12 pounds & go up a pant size. But before I was eating to survive or eating because it would make the morning sickness feel slightly better. Now food sounds good again! & I'm not having anymore aversions! It was starting to get bleak there. I mean what is life if food doesn't taste good?? But now that every bite is like pure joy & satisfaction, I'm happy. Dare I say, I'm feeling like myself!
In other news, I bought my first article of maternity clothing! Some jean shorts with an attached over the belly band. They're so comfy & they'll be great for summer.
Everyday I feel more & more connected to the baby. I'm very aware it's there & I think about it often. I wonder what it looks like, if it's moving around or sleeping. I wonder if it knows my voice yet. Once we find out the gender in a few weeks, we'll finally pick a name & I'll be able to start calling them by it. & that makes me smile.
This was filmed 2/12/17. I'm so glad to have finally reached the 2nd trimester! Even though everyday my pregnancy symptoms are different, everyday it seems to get a little easier. I think partially because I'm getting used to feeling different. If you're pregnant, please let me know how far along you are & how it's been going for you! If you have any name suggestions, leave a comment & let me know! I love hearing from you!
