We're officially in the second trimester! I know...when the heck IS the second trimester? Bit of a long winded answer here.....
Some go by development of the baby; thus the second trimester begins at 12 weeks when the embryo becomes a full fledged fetus.
Some go by gestation time (40 weeks) divided by 3, which means 13 weeks and 3 days is the beginning of the second trimester.
And some go by conception date meaning 38 weeks divided by 3 and then adding two weeks, which makes 14 weeks and 5 days the beginning of the second trimester.
Yeah, that's not confusing. ANYWAYS....by most people's standards, we're officially in the second trimester - YAY! Here's hoping for less nausea and acne and more energy! Haven't really seen any sign of this yet, but it's still early. Must be patient.
Weight Gain: Last time I checked I was still only a couple lbs up, but I haven't checked in a few days and I have a feeling it might be a wee bit more now!
Feeling: Feeling better in the mornings, but still getting a bit of the afternoon malaise. Smells can still set me off too. Still taking the Diclectin for now.
Maternity Clothes: Loving my black leggings! Wore them with a cute grey top and a black cardi to an afternoon party - so comfortable!
Cravings: I've been feeling like burgers this week - going to make some for dinner tomorrow night!
Milestones: Things are pretty quiet on the milestone front this week.
Movement: Nope - but I'm not surprised. I don't even have a noticeable bump, so how can I expect to FEEL movement right?
Weekly Wisdom: I'm not so wise this week it seems. How about the trustworthy "go with the flow"? haha
Random Name Ideas: We didn't come up with any names this week, but others have made some suggestions: Ripley, Orson, and my favorite - Poutine!! ahahaha. Even my 4 year old niece had a suggestion: Emma :)
