The Second Trimester || Weeks 14-19

Wednesday, March 11, 2015


I was so excited to finally reach the second trimester in January.  I felt relief as it was another milestone in this being a pregnancy that will “stick”.  I was excited to see the nausea slowly dissipate into being non-existent.  I thought it was funny that my appetite though, would come and go.  Some days I felt like I was eating everything in sight, and other days I’d take two bites every 3-4 hours or so and be done.  It was so awkward.  I would feel bad if my low appetite would hit after we had ordered food or breakfast so I learned to listen more to my body, order light foods and that definitely worked better.

Weeks 14-19:
Total Weight Gain: 11 pounds

Gender: Found out on 2/17 at 17weeks, 5 days

Nickname: Lil Malasada (It took me forever to come up with baby’s own unique nickname to use since I can’t call baby by name yet (on social media), and so since R likes to “laugh with me” about how “Podagee” I act even though he has more Portuguese blood than I do, I thought lil malasada would be fitting since we always talk about certain traits baby we hope (or don’t hope) baby gets from us!

Sleep: Occassionally waking up to empty my bladder

Movement: In my 19th week I felt some things, but wasn't quite sure if it was baby or me imagining it.  I don't think it'll be real until I feel a full on kick that I can feel when my hand is on my tummy!

Craving:  Still random cravings

Missing: Ahi and a good Bloody Mary
Symptoms: Back Pain, Itchy Tummy, Congestion, Round Ligament Pains

Looking Forward To: Having a bump and not looking like a frump (or a chunk :-p)!

Best Moments: My anatomy scan!!! My quad marker screen came back with elevated risk for neural tube defects and spina bifida.  Naturally I was quite worried and a little anxious the two weeks I had to wait for my anatomy scan.  However, everything was perfect!  Baby measured exactly as that lil malasada should!  And we found out the gender which I’m waiting patiently to do my gender reveal pictures to announce!
