I’ll do a weekly bump update so I can look back and see how things progress and what was happening at various points along the way.
So this early-ish 2nd trimester (start of 14 wks-end of 27 wks) stuff is like being in limbo.
At least for me.
I basically feel doughy and not really pregnant. Maybe it doesn’t exactly seem that way looking at me and you’d actually exactly ‘get it’ when looking at me but I just feel my extra super muffin top isn’t cute. Maybe I just need to get into maternity wear but my pants still fit- snugly, but they def still fit.
I’m still waiting to feel movement. I’ve felt some but I’m just eagerly waiting for more. I want more damn it!!!
Basically, I just don’t feel like I’m fun to talk to…
- ‘are you feeling better now?’ ‘I was never sick, not once.’
- ‘what are you craving?’ ‘nothing. Though, I eat a lot of plain pasta because boiling water is about much effort I want to put into cooking right now.’
- ‘when do you find out if it’s a boy or girl?’ ‘we’re not going to.’
However, all that being said, I love laying down and feeling my poochy bump in the morning and at night when I go to bed. It’s nice, relaxing, and that is when this whole pregnancy stuff feels really. Which basically why I took that photo above.
Oh yeah, not to mention the minor meltdown over nothing special I had this morning that resulted in me laying down again just to cry. Like tears streaming into my ears cry. Hormones!! Whattaya gonna do?!?!
