I am in the last week of my 6 month and 2nd trimester!!! Where has the time gone? the 1st Trimester and 4 months seemed to go by so sloooooowwwww. Hopefully since it took a while for the better feeling 2nd trimester to kick in that it will last a little longer into the 3rd trimester lol.
Little Peanut has been kicking away everyday. His kicks are getting stronger. And while they do not hurt(yet) sometimes they can feel a little uncomfortable. And sometimes they make me laugh. Especially if I am laying down.
Also, sometimes when I am lying down and press on my belly in certain places I can feel a foot or knee or fist. That is pretty cool.
The baby has been pretty good about settling down when I go to bed at night, but for the past couple of nights he has been pretty active when I am trying to go to sleep. I think this will probably continue and get worse lol.
Most of the time when I feel the baby kick I don't think much, but "oh, he's kicking again" and it is cool, but if I really stop and think about it, it takes my breath away. I have a living thing in my stomach!! There is actually a baby in there!! And while it was always in the back of my mind that I would one day have this, there were a couple times when I worried I wouldn't and it just feels so miraculous and amazing. When I am at church with all these women and their little baby boys I can't wait to be holding my own, but then I feel him kick and I am like "no, I want to keep him in there for a long time!!!". It is so awesome to feel his little kicks and punches.
As far as I have been feeling.... pretty good for the most part, but I have had 2 mornings where I felt like crap after getting to work. Either I feel dizzy or like throwing up (or both). each time I gave myself an hour and it passed. Yesterday, though, it kinda came back for awhile in the afternoon for a little while. It might be the changes in temperature. I eat breakfast in the morning and take my Zofran so I am not sure what else is causing it all of a sudden.
I was told yesterday I am looking really good for 6 months pregnant :) She didn't realize I was pregnant (she is a new coworker). There is definitely an advantage to going into a pregnancy overweight lol. I still have 2 bellies! And I have only gained 10 pounds. Also, my belly button shows no signs of becoming an outtie!!! Or a flattie.
My aunts and cousins ordered us a crib and it came today :) So excited to have TJ put it together and arrange the nursery! We also set a date for my shower next month.
Next week's update will be on Wednesday after my doctor appointment. I get my glucose test and after that I will be going every 2 weeks instead of 4!!
