2nd trimester!!!

Baby Deuce and I are now in our 2nd trimester!!!  Which seems impossible considering how incredibly looooooong my 1st trimester seemed to last with Paisley.  It was like I could hear every single clock in the nearest 100 miles ticking second by second.  Days seemed to last 3 times as long as they do now.

Partly, this makes me happy because I'm calm and relaxed and just enjoying my pregnancy.  But then there is a huge part of me that adores being pregnant and I know this is the last time.  So, I don't want to rush it at all.   I look forward to the point when I can feel the baby move (which didn't happen until 22 weeks with P, so I may still have a while).

My NT scan went great last week and they called me today to tell me that my bloodwork was perfect.  I had to call them back to get exact numbers because I'm obsessive about these kind of things!  I go back at the end of the month for my 2nd set of bloodwork and then March 3rd for my anatomy scan!!!

I went into this pregnancy weighing slightly less than I did when I got pregnant with Paisley, but I've only gained 3 pounds in the 1st trimester which I'm thankful for.  I gained 34 with her and I'd love if I could be a little closer to the 25 mark when I have this one.  Bad thing is that I have August heat to contend with again which inevitably leads to August swelling....

We finally started weekly pregnancy photos last week so I'll post my new one once we take it today.  I had a TON of early bloating so I seemed to "show" a lot sooner but that seemed to disappear a week or two ago and now I'm looking similar to my last pregnancy at this point.   My PA workplace still doesn't know I'm pregnant, but I'm planning on telling them this week.  Even with my labcoat and scrubs on, it's going to become pretty obvious soon!


  1. Yay! Reading your talk about pregnancy makes me long for it even more! I LOVED being pregnant! I SO wish we could even close to handle another baby, lol!
