I’ve talked about my first trimester here and it’s crazy to think that me and this little boy bundle are already half way there! So here’s the latest:
Besides a seriously annoying stuffy nose, I’ve been feeling great.
I’ve been lathering up with Mama Bee morning and night – love the stuff! And going to yoga every Saturday morning and occasional Wednesday night. It’s been really good for breathing and just maintaining a healthy mindset.
Lunches are still a little difficult but I’ve been turning to canned soup and fruit. So far I’m trending under 15 lbs – so I’m aiming for a 30 lb or less total weight gain. We’ll see!
We’ve bought some more cute little baby clothes (can’t help it!) and gifts are starting to trickle in. We have some of the greatest friends 🙂 Hudson is so loved already.
As we continue to decorate and furnish our house we’re not really in the mindset of baby proofing (just yet.) We figure we have some time before our house transforms a little bit. We absolutely LOVE our house and it’s going to be so great for a family. Nick has been researching some parenting books and even downloaded one that some of his peers recommended – he continues to surprise me with this stuff and it melts my heart.
We’ve got a pretty good idea on what we’d like to do in the nursery – thank you, Pinterest! But we’ve yet to start finding things… I think once I hit nesting mode it’s on.
I’ve been trying to take weekly belly shots in our lovely bathroom, but I missed week 17! Oops! I’ll get better about it – especially as this tummy grows.
Lastly, I’ve been super thankful for sparkling water and I think it’s about time I start using a body pillow. I hear it’s a life saver.
What else was a life saver for you during your second trimester? What did you enjoy the most? What were you doing to prepare for your third trimester?
And when did you start feeling your little babe? I’m getting antsy!
