Pregnancy Update | Second Trimester Recap

May 26, 2017

Happy holiday weekend to everyone! I am beyond excited to have three lazy days with my little family. There’s a huge music festival going on here this weekend, so we are going to try and stay away from the traffic and just relax and maybe find some water to play in.

I can’t believe I am already 29 weeks, you guys. This pregnancy is flying. In the last update, I mentioned that this has been my easiest pregnancy and it still stands (so far). Pregnancy has never really been kind to me, so I will take the minimal annoyances from this one and be thankful it wasn’t like the other two! My hair and skin have even been better with this one.

The yucky parts of the second trimester were the migraines (one or two a week), the start of pregnancy insomnia, and towards the end, anemia. The anemia is making me so freaking tired and out of breath. I just started a new regimen of whole food based iron supplements, so I am hoping for a little more energy. The worst part of pregnancy right now is not being able to physically do as much as I want to do and it’s driving me nuts. I know it will be a handful to have two under two, but being pregnant with a toddler is no walk in the park, either! Grayson is actually a big help, and I appreciate him so much. He’s the best big brother the little ones could ever wish for.

I am doing maternity photos this coming weekend and I am pretty excited about that! I have never done them, and it’s my last baby- so I figured why not? I have a couple of gorgeous dresses and flower crowns that I can’t wait to show you. After that, we are in the home stretch! I had a 3D ultrasound yesterday and Lincoln is basically the cutest thing in the world and looks exactly like Charlie.

He’s currently breech, so unless he turns around, my plans to have a VBAC are smashed again. It is what it is, but I am hoping for the best, especially since this area is so VBAC supportive. Nevertheless, we are in the home stretch now! 10ish weeks and counting…

How many weeks now? 29

How much weight gain? 25 I think

Symptoms lately? fatigue, breathlessness, heartburn, insomnia

Cravings? Lately I have wanted citrus, other fresh fruit, and MEXICAN STREET CORN.

Aversions? I have no interest in eggs.
