Today completes 12 weeks and 2 days of the 40 week journey. So all of you elementary math whizzes out there have probably already figured out that I am 5 days away from the beginning of the 2nd trimester. And hopefully that will bring about some smooth sailing: less fatigue, no more nausea, increased energy, and that wonderful "glow" that has eluded me in my previous pregnancies. I am indeed looking forward to the next trimester.
I am still having slight bouts of daily nausea and random crankiness, but the fatigue is really surprising to me this time around. Perhaps it reveals my age. As of this morning, I am up 4lbs...and while my mid-section is taking shape, I think most of those pounds are making themselves cozy on my arse. I could need bigger pants soon to accommodate that growth. In similar news, I have graduated to maternity shirts as my current tops make me look like a chickie who's wearing clothes that are getting abit too small. We all know what that looks like and it is NOT flattering!
I am officially off the extra hormones that I have been on for the past 8 weeks, and I cannot tell you all how relieved I am - no more shots, pills, or other icky stuff. I'm hoping to start to feel like I'm off those little boogers too -- soon, and very soon!
C's flight comes in on Monday evening; she will join me for the ultrasound on Tuesday morning, then head back to her family shortly after that. We're hoping for a longer visit in the future. I'm anxious for her to see the hospital, meet the OB, and of course meet my crew o'kiddos!
Praying good news awaits us after next week's ultrasound. See you all then!
