Here we are, already past halfway through!! It’s funny how the first trimester drags by so slowly, and then the 2nd trimester seems to fly by!!
Overall, I have been doing well! I am LOVING feeling movement from my sweet baby all throughout the day, and so exciting to be able to watch my belly move with those kicks and somersaults! Pregnancy is a miraculous time for sure! I’ll never forget when my husband first felt those kicks from my tummy last time around, and was so weirded out by them, haha!
I’ve been very busy lately with shooting weddings and coaching women in my fitness groups…on top of being a stay at home mom of twin (almost) three-year-olds, and though it feels like a LOT to manage some days, I wouldn’t trade it for anything right now!!
I haven’t seen a huge increase in my appetite yet, despite the scale continuing to go up each week! I still seem to be gaining just the amount as the number of weeks I am…and I am just waiting for that to slow down a little, yikes!! I am active every day and eat mainly whole foods plus some dark chocolate and have to trust that my body knows exactly what it is doing! I haven’t had any specific cravings or aversions this trimester. Boring, I know! ha! The only bothersome things I’m experiencing are trouble sleeping (Oh how I MISS sleeping on my tummy!!!!), lower back pain, and painful varicose veins! I am so thankful those things are minor!
It’s funny how for my first pregnancy, it seemed like we were planning and preparing for the twins from very early on, and I realized I really haven’t done anything yet to get ready for life with another child!! He or she will be here before we know it!
I took this pic at 20 weeks but forgot to share it!
