Officially in the 2nd Trimester! Woo!
Taken May 11th
My first official bump pic! (Ignore the dirty mirror and bathroom…I sorta took this spur of the moment) I wish I had taken one around 4/5 weeks so you can see the difference. This was about the time I realized I could no longer “suck it in”…and instead of trying to hide it I may as well just embrace it.
I think the toughest part of this week was that I didn’t feel like I looked pregnant…just fat. My stomach is definately sticking out now all the time…and not just after I eat like before. But I doubt anyone that doesn’t know I’m pregnant would think anything.
Baby fruit size: Lemon
Best Moment(s): Officially entering the 2nd trimester! The feeling that I don’t have to hide it anymore from randoms and people at work (now that my boss knows!).
Symptoms: Nothing notable here except my expanding stomach and the fact that I can only wear about one pair of jeans buttoned comfortably.
What I Miss: Another big thing I noticed this week was how much slooooowwwer I’ve been running. I seem to get tired quicker and I get the feeling I have to pee about half way into the run…even if I go right before i head out the door. So I guess this week I’m missing running like I used to.
What I Can’t Wait For: This is the same as the last update…pretty much looking forward to everything at this point!
