WOW! I can’t believe we are here! I know technically the 2nd trimester doesn’t start until next week, but I think I am just going to go with it. I think I may even “come out” tomorrow on Facebook and to everyone else. I have been waiting so long (it seems) to tell everyone. We have our OB appointment tomorrow, so I will at least wait until after that. I think it will feel so good to have it out in the open.
I listened to the heartbeat again last night. Still going strong. I am proud of myself for not doing that every day. I wasn’t sure how I would be, but glad that I am not that obsessed. 🙂
My parents are coming for a visit this weekend so my mom and I may go check out some maternity shops at the mall. I am not a big fan of shopping, but since it is getting to the point of needing some new tops to accommodate “the girls” I might as well, get some nice maternity ones. And I could user another bra.
I have still had spotting on and off. Can’t remember if I said anything, but the doctor put me on pelvic rest. The goal is to have 2 weeks of no bleeding/spotting. So Back to a 2WW (2 week wait). I have had a day or two here but then I spot the next. So far Monday this week started the 2WW again, so praying that it lasts!
As far as symptoms, still have the trouble with nausea. And I have actually thrown up about 3 times within the last week. It is usually when I haven’t eaten for more than 2 hours. Trouble is, I eat, then I start to feel nauseous, so I don’t want to eat. But then the longer I go without eating the more nauseous I feel. Then all of a sudden it hits and I throw up. Then I feel fine and can eat. It is nuts. I am still holding out hope that within the next 2 weeks, this starts to go away….praying that it does.
I got my hair cut yesterday. To understand a bit about be, I do not get my hair cut every 6-8 weeks like most people. I typically get a shorter cut and then let it grow back out. It could be several months! Actually I think it has been probably at least 6 months. So my hair had grown out pretty long and I decided that I was ready for a change. I went from long layers to a shorter bob (with layers). I got about 5 inches cut off. It still feels so weird not to have so much hair, but I like it. Hubby likes it too and even said I looked younger! BONUS! 🙂
