I figure maybe I should start writing about what is going on.
I’m in the second trimester now – yay!
I’ve embraced tights as pants like I never have before.
I have enough of a bump that people who know me can notice it.
My boobs are so ginormous right now that a male friend recently went to cuddle my tummy and ended up with a face full of chest instead (still not sure if this was his intention or not…)
I’m not really queasy anymore, but I have to eat as soon as I’m hungry and when I say I’m hungry, I’m hungry.
Like I go from full to starving in 2.4 seconds.
It is strange, not vomiting after everything I eat because with the other two, I was just sick ALL THE TIME.
So it can’t be a gender thing because I have one of each.
Cravings? I’ve been craving a great salad sandwich.
Especially with alfalfa sprouts.
I haven’t found the right one yet.
Some have come close but it is still out there, waiting.
I’m going to attempt to make one later.
Feeling? Tired. So. Fucking. Tired.
I nap during the day and then I go to sleep at 7:30 when I lay down with the kids to put them to sleep, then I wake at 9, go and watch T.V. for an hour and back to bed.
My nights are spent tossing and turning because of crazy dreams, which alternate between sex dreams about hubby and weird crazy sometimes scary ones.
3 hour shifts at work wipe me out.
I keep intending to go to the gym and I’m like… Or I could nap.
I have felt movements.
The little nug sometimes does this entire body roll where it will move to one side and curl right up and I feel it go all tight.
I’ve also felt random little kicks, mostly when I’m poking it, because hey, may as well start annoying them early.
I do wonder how different this time around will be.
Mostly because this one was planned – not that we don’t love or didn’t want our other two, they just kind of joined the party when they wanted to.
Although I bet that I still won’t be prepared.
Ending on – apparently nug is now 9cm long crown to rump, so head to bum. Crazy that something that long can be in you and you don’t even feel it most of the time.
Dirty sex jokes har har har.
