Things I Want To Remember: Week 14 | Anchors Aweigh


Things I Want To Remember: Week 14

Oh hey there week 14! More importantly, hey there second trimester! I feel like the first trimester lasted so long, and I'm not sad at all to see it go. Since we found out we were expecting around week 3.5, and the nausea started up around week 4.5, it feels like I have been pregnant a long, long time. I wouldn't change a thing about the first trimester and am so, so thankful for every little part of it, but I am looking forward to more energy and less food aversions!

1. I think I hit a growth spurt because I am hungry all. the. time. I feel like I am just shoveling food in all day but it's rare to actually feel full! I told my sister this week "I am tired of eating", which is so strange for me. I usually love to eat! I still don't want meat but can do it if it's in a casserole. This week I also discovered the corn dog. Oh how I love a good corny dog this pregnancy!

2. I definitely feel a small increase in energy and a slight decrease in the nausea! It's been a gradual thing, but I am very grateful for more energy and a lesser desire to throw up. ;) I am knocking on wood, but as of week 14, I haven't thrown up yet, and I don't foresee throwing up the rest of this pregnancy, but you never know. 

3. I have to remind myself that my body is working really hard because cutting workouts is hard for me, but I just can't hang anymore. I power walk 2.5 miles most mornings, and while it feels great, my legs are so tired by the end. It's all I can do right now, and that's okay. It's something!

4. Sleep is my favorite! I sleep 9-10 hours a night and am so, so happy about it. Give this pregnant girl all the sleep!

5. I am so paranoid about getting bit by mosquitoes with this Zika virus. I love to walk Jenny and do my morning power walks, but I have become so anxious about getting bit by mosquitoes. I always say a little prayer and ask God to protect this baby before I venture out. I know chances are there aren't even mosquitoes in this area that carry the virus, but it's still so nerve racking! 

6. I am still wearing all of my normal clothes, but I did have to do the rubber band trick with a pair of jeans for the first time. They wouldn't button!

Yay for the second trimester!!! It was always such a relief for me - both mentally and physically. This past time though, my nausea lasted through week 18. Silly babies! You look wonderful!

You look so good! Your much more stylish in your bump pictures than I was. ;)

I'm so glad your nausea is easing up! I hope it stays that way. I threw up 5-7 times in day almost every day I was pregnant. I wouldn't wish that on anyone.
