|Lady Jr is starting to move about more and more. They have a heart rate of 160, eyebrows, and their kidneys have started producing urine. Yay pee!
Lady Jr is growing very quickly. They’re either the size of a clenched fist, a beet, a mille fileu, or a house mouse:
Officially, definitely, most assuredly we are now in the second trimester. I’m still waiting for that magical day when I wake up and everything is awesome, but at least overall things are getting better. For one, I was able to complete an 8 mile hike this weekend, which I would absolutely not have been capable of three, four weeks ago. For another, I can eat (some, small bits of) meat again and I’m beginning to add more and more vegetables back. My diet no longer consists of just pizza and pastries.
I’m also still waiting for that day when I can believe this is all real and happening.
I feel like a fat noodle, all waterlogged and gross. 75% of my skirts ride up so far that they’re no longer comfortable. My belly is always there and I can’t even suck it in anymore. But it doesn’t look cute, just like a lot of chub. And then I go and try to compare myself to where other people are at and it’s no good. I wrote a whole long post about it yesterday and then just felt like I was whining, but I am really having trouble with this whole gaining weight thing. :< It sucks and it's hard and I don't know how to turn off the perfectionist voice that says I shouldn't gain more than 25 pounds and I should look like a professional athlete the entire time, so tips would be appreciated.
Other things that suck: random pain/cramps that like to come on right when I'm trying to go to sleep. Then I get to rock and make awful noises for an hour or until it finally goes away. It's muscular pain, for sure, and I assume it's just my uterus trying to shove its way upwards from its retroverted position. x.x
Things that don't suck: Telling extended family. Telling work. Knowing that I'm officially in the first "safe" zone. Not worrying so much. Being able to eat vegetables again. Not needing seven naps a day. Being able to say why I'm so tired/feeling gross. Swapping name ideas with Lady. Knowing that in a few weeks I'll really start showing and maybe then I'll feel better about going so slow at Crossfit. Continuing to dream that I'm going to be a badass second trimsterer who runs and hikes and lifts.
Photo for this week (technically 13 weeks, 6 days). I think from here on out I'll try to do them weekly.
